Verdict

RAINFOREST MAGIC hasn't shown much in three runs over timber but returned to action on the Flat after a long break with a striking performance here on Tuesday and is on a very lenient mark here. Good Decision has been in fine form over fences and reverts to hurdling on a 10lb lower mark so he's another who looks leniently treated. Rockyaboya looked all over a winner when taking the lead at the final flight on his handicap debut at Cork but was run out of it by Career Move. He has to be considered along with The Grey Express, still a maiden over timber but a good second to Rheinland at Limerick last week.
