      Verdict

      Rated 94, RAAHY returns to novice company and should have enough to defy a penalty incurred for an earlier success at Lingfield. He’s weighted to beat Electric Ladyland, who hasn’t won since landing a double back in April though went close at Wolverhampton last time. Magical Moment showed some promise at Haydock on her debut and Catechism will likely finish closer having debuted at Newbury last month. Rathagan is a brother to a winner on the all-weather and a half-brother to others and is a newcomer to note.
