Raj To Riches was due to run at Windsor last night and appeared not to last home when attempting to make all over track and trip a fortnight ago. But he finished well ahead of Auxiliary on that occasion and has leading claims if taking his chance. Tazaayud drops in class but has shown little in either start so far and it could pay to take a chance on WHITMAN. Mark Johnston likes to send a few of his lesser lights to this track and the latter is a half-brother to three winners and makes more appeal than fellow newcomer Show Stealer.
