      Verdict

      RIVEN LIGHT already has a Listed victory to his credit at Galway last year and landed a major handicap there in July before a trip to Korea, which should be ignored. He's top-rated here and looks the one to be on though Mustajeer also arrives after a light campaign, following two good runs in Listed company with a fine effort when fourth in the Ebor. Snowflakes hasn't done as well as expected after landing a Cork maiden while Normandel, a Listed winner in France, has her first start for Jim Bolger after a long break. Romiyna looked as though she may need further when staying on over the track and trip last time.
