Abstract: Decompositions of products of the Ray elements by free generators of small dimensions in the symplectic cobordism ring are obtained. In particular it is stated that most of the $4n$-dimensional generators, for $n$ small, after multiplication by the Ray elements $\phi_i$, $i\geqslant0$, land in the ideal generated by Ray elements of low dimension.
