Verdict

GOLDEN SUNSET ended last season in good form over fences, making it 2 wins from his last 3 starts at Downpatrick in March. He's a lower hurdles mark to operate from on return and narrowly shades the vote. Dessie Deschamps, Bellaney Gem, Island Mahee and Boghlone Honey head up a long list of potential threats in a typically wide-open, big-field handicap.

  1. GOLDEN SUNSET
  2. DESSIE DESCHAMPS (IRE)
  3. BELLANEY GEM (IRE)
