RAAHIN returned to action with a second over today's trip at Newmarket and that looks the best form on offer here. Further progress will make him difficult to catch and he's preferred to Deraasa, who stepped up on her debut effort to finish runner-up on soft ground at Epsom. Gobooll stayed on for third place on her debut at Newmarket in June and will appreciate the longer trip, but Palazzo Bianco looks to have a bit to find on what he's shown so far. The newcomer Empyrean is a half-sister to four winners and everything her stable runs is worth noting at present.
