Golden Slipper Tips: Narcissus opened at $26 for betting before drifting out to $31 where he has been solid. Narcissus has drawn barrier 12 but is likely to drift back upon gates opening, he should be able to sit two wide just back of mid field. He goes into the race at $31 in Golden Slipper Betting and he looks like he will be a good each way bet in the Golden Slipper 2012.
