Verdict

Not a particularly deep race and this gives the good bumper horse OSCAR ROSE a chance of getting off the mark over hurdles and she could well put her experience to good use. Chilli Filli may not be totally suited by dropping back in trip here from her win last time out giving a penalty away. Big Robin has to be respected after some wind surgery and from a powerful yard although she will need to jump better than she did last time out. Westerberry is worth watching in the market and keeping in mind for handicaps along with Longhousesignora.
  1. Oscar Rose
  2. Big Robin
  3. Chilli Filli
