Verdict

Paddy The Oscar continues to defy age and cannot be easily overlooked in his bid for a third C&D win of the season, at 15-years young. He should mount another bid at this track he relishes. Last year's winner Lac Sacre has been threatening to take advantage of a falling mark and is also respected in this grade again while Bears Rails might find this trip more to his liking after marathon journeys at Plumpton and Lingfield. There was much to like about CAILLEACH ANNIE's Uttoxeter win on New Year's Eve and she may be up to defying the ratings hike, give how much she had in hand there.
