Verdict

With Patrick Mullins closing in on the amateur riders record for the number of winners in a year, UNION DUES is likely to come in for strong support and can supplement his impressive debut victory at Killarney in July. Champagne James looks a real find for Ted Walsh as he cruised through to score over the C&D last month while Gilt Shadow beat a big field at Down Royal easily though that race was run at a crawl. The remainder will need to improve to take care of the unbeaten trio.
