In depth

Verdict

Raydari is an interesting newcomer being a half-brother to a 7f winner and out of a mare who scored over 1m4f. Mullingar was going on nicely at the finish behind Compelling here last week and can probably do better but all known form points to GONEBEYONDTHEMOON. David Watchman's Danehill Dancer filly needs a victory for the paddocks and this represents an ideal opportunity after her close fourth to Laughing at Navan. Greasai was beaten a long way on his debut at the Curragh but that was over 6f and this trip is much more suitable.
