Verdict

Rajapur is by Dalakhani and will have found 7f sharp enough on his debut here just over a week ago. He'll have benefited from the experience and should go close but Pat Smullen has chosen to ride the newcomer TRUE SOLITAIRE for Dermot Weld and the half-brother to a couple of useful winners may be good enough to make a successful start. Ravens Hill has had a break since a decent run at Naas in April while Turret Rocks, a half-sister to the useful two-year-old winner Beyond Thankful, will know her job. Jaafy's dam produced a winner in France with her first foal and Uninhibited is related to several winners at around this trip.
