"...should go on improving, particularly with a run now under his belt."

Timeform on Raaeq

Raaeq - 14:30 Sandown

Raaeq confirmed his debut promise when getting off the mark at the second attempt at Newbury this time last year, getting the better of Establish, who is now verging on smart. He shaped well on his handicap debut after eleven months off over this course and distance last time, keeping on well but just unable to reel in one who came in for a well-judged ride from the front. He is up just 2 lb for that win and should go on improving, particularly with a run now under his belt.

Made For All - 15:35 Sandown

Made For All showed little in her first two outings of the season, following a below-par effort with an even worse one, but she produced a career-best performance to get off the mark at Catterick last time. However, she had dropped 5 lb since her handicap debut, and she was only facing a bunch of ordinary three-year-olds, so it may not be wise to view that form too positively. A 9 lb rise for that win means she is best opposed.

Smart Stat
Moonlight In Paris - 16:05 Sandown

23% - John Gosden's strike rate with handicap debutants

After winning on debut at Nottingham last year, Moonlight In Paris was found out in better company on her return to action in June, coming up short at listed level, but she quickly got back on the up dropped back in grade on Newmarket's July course last time, conceding 7 lb to the winner. She is dropped back in trip here but the pace is likely to be a strong one, which should bring her stamina nicely into play, and with John Gosden's record with handicap debutants being what it is, she looks worth siding with to get off the mark in this code at the first attempt.
