Verdict

SUNTIEP has been thwarted from making his racecourse debut on several occasions and though bred to be a chaser he'll know his job and should make a winning start. Captain Canada is another who will appreciate a set of fences as he's won his last two starts between the flags and would have been on a four-timer but for falling at the last at Leadington on New Year's Day. Garuda Flyer wasn't suited by the slow pace on his debut at Clonmel and can do better but the remainder will need to find some improvement to trouble the principals.
