Verdict

Wallace Spirit has been racing over further but doesn’t look an easy ride. RAY’S THE MONEY ran better than the final result suggests here in January. The better ground will suit Charlie Mann’s gelding, who is fit from the all-weather, and he gets the nod as Joycetick has shown little in two starts since arriving from France and is penalised. Rebel Royal may be best of the rest but that’s not saying much.
