Verdict

Raj To Riches made a promising start when going close at Windsor just five days ago. He's preferred to Sir Dudley but one of the newcomers may prove too good. Like most of the debutants, SEASTROM is a first foal and the son of smart Listed winner Seta cost 425,000gns. The Godolphin colt is just preferred to Riflescope, whose yard has made a good start to the season with its two-year-old runners. Gittan is another to consider especially if the betting speaks in his favour.
