Golden Sunset (4/1), Ballymadun (5/1), Wa Wa (5/1), Sweet Will (6/1), Lisavalley Lass (7/1), Getaway Goldie (17/2), Hide Out (12/1), Boogily Lane (16/1), Mount Callan (16/1), Antigua Son (22/1), Confusionanddelay (25/1), Ellaat (28/1), Four Courts (33/1), Full Noise (50/1), Viscount Wilson (50/1), Drimsree Lad (66/1), Mick Mixy (66/1)

Verdict

It's perhaps worth taking a chance on the fitness of the returning GOLDEN SUNSET as he is well treated on his chase exploits from early last year, with confidence in his chance increased should the betting vibes be strong. Ballymadun can provide the chief threat. Ellaat and handicap newcomer Confusionanddelay are also on the shortlist.

  1. GOLDEN SUNSET
  2. BALLYMADUN
  3. ELLAAT
