Verdict

GOLD SUN made amends for his fall at Wexford (likely to have won) when comfortably beating 11 rivals at Sligo and has room for plenty of improvement, especially in his jumping. Rubiana has caught the eye on both his starts over fences this season and is of interest now handicapping in this sphere, while Lord Lariat remains open to significant improvement over fences on hurdles form.

  1. GOLD SUN (IRE)
  2. RUBIANA (IRE)
  3. LORD LARIAT (IRE)
