SUNSETTEN would probably have won here in June had he not tried to demolish the final fence. He made amends over C&D next time and can reverse that earlier running with Pyracantha, despite not being at his best at Stratford last time. Golden View has won between the flags but was last of three on his debut over regulation fences at Perth and may need more time, while The Wifes Pet will do well to win this after a lengthy lay-off. Taratata Sivola is only a four-year-old so gets all the allowances and had five runs over fences in France. He could be interesting if the market speaks in his favour.
