Verdict

AL RIFFA ran a hugely-encouraging race on debut here 3 weeks ago, really motoring at the finish after a slow start but unable to reel in a promising Ballydoyle winner. He looks open to considerable progress and can put his experience to use and see off some intriguing newcomers, headed by Boy Scout and Shot of Love.
