The Sportsman's Verdict
Palixandre represents powerful connections but hasn't performed to his true potential in two career starts so far, while Sunset Showdown is surely better than he showed last time and drops out of handicap company. This can go the way of DARTMOOR, who was far from disgraced when last in a three-runner Carlisle bumper. He is by a good National Hunt sire and should appreciate this stiffer stamina test.
