Verdict

The top two look the ones to concentrate on and GOLDEN SUNRISE, who has taken a small step forward with each start, can win again. We won't see the best of him until he tackles fences but for the time being, he can continue his progression with another victory here. Boreham Bill won at Southwell but that form isn't as strong as the selection and he needs a bit more here. Reikers Island may be best of the rest.
  1. Golden Sunrise
  2. Boreham Bill
