Verdict

This looks wide open and it may pay to take a chance on GOLDEN SUNSET. A dual winner from higher marks over fences last season, he probably needed his first start for 12 months 12 days ago and a better showing can be expected here. Ballymadun, Oscer Romero and Pino Boy head up the dangers.

  1. GOLDEN SUNSET
