Verdict

A very low-key resumption to horse racing at Towcester, with these fillies and mares seemingly fairly light in terms of ability. Oscar's Song improved initially after leaving Charlie Longsdon, and whilst she's probably the form pick, she doesn't appear the most reliable. Therefore, it should pay to focus upon some lesser exposed sorts. Oscar Star fits that bill for Jamie Snowden, and looks capable of a good run on her hurdles debut on ground which should suit, but another chance can be given to THELUNARSCHOONER. She raced keenly on her hurdles debut at Market Rasen, and needs to drop the anchor for Richard Johnson, but she's a well related filly who showed grit and determination to score at Newton Abbot (bumper) on her first start for this trainer in late August.
  1. Thelunarschooner
