Verdict

This looks yet another for the champion trainer as the chasing debut of SUNTIEP has been eagerly awaited. Unbeaten in three starts, the latest when slamming the useful Bonisland at Navan in March, he's always been regarded as a potentially useful staying chaser and though this is no easy task he can get off the mark at the first time of asking. Minsk is a smart hurdler who didn't make much of an impression on his chasing bow at Navan but there's much more to come and he looks a threat while Rogue Angel has done well against strong opposition and will ensure a stiff test. Followmeuptocarlow arrives in tremendous shape after beating a big field over hurdles here on his reappearance though he's making his chasing debut at an advanced age.
