dwelt raced wide, tracked leaders, headway to lead over 2f out, ridden clear approaching final furlong, eased towards finish
tracked leader until hung right 3f out, soon ridden, kept on under pressure inside final furlong
led, ridden and headed over 2f out, driven inside final furlong, just held on to 2nd
All three arrive in woeful form but RAJAPUR has the distinction of having won a race, though that was back in 2017. He may prove good enough in this and is preferred to stablemate Unique Company, who showed nothing in three outings last year. Ejabah has had 23 starts without success but an apprentice’s allowance gives him a shout on today’s terms if finding any sort of form.
