Verdict

DUNUM made it 2-2 for his present yard when scoring at Gowran 12 days ago and, with the prospect of more to come from this 4-y-o, he looks the way to go. That said, Corky is of strong interest, too, judged on his improved handicap debut near miss at Down Royal. He is second choice ahead of Morning Approach, who hit the target at Leopardstown last week.
