511-4OR:
3/1

Good second in a Boulta point in December but unsold after for £34,000. Now joined top yard for rules debut and therefore must be respected here.

511-4OR:
33/1

Very moderate form in two point-to-points with a pulled-up and an eighth. Others from that sphere bring stronger credentials.

511-4OR:

Arcadio newcomer; second foal; dam achieved little bumper/point, out of half-sister to smart staying chaser Lean Ar Aghaidh. Probably best watched here.

511-4OR:

Little impact in five previous maiden hurdles or on AW when racing on the Flat at Dundalk latest. Makes no appeal here.

511-4OR:
14/1

Rule Of Law newcomer; first foal; dam point winner/placed 2m-3m1f hurdles/chases, half-sister to useful 3m-3m5f chase winner Embracing Change. Likely want a great deal further than this but could still go well.

711-4OR:
50/1

No impression and one pace on debut finishing 14th of 18 beaten 70L at Limerick and little better next at Sligo when a tailed off ninth of 14. Makes no appeal.

Third at Limerick was promising two starts back and ½L second at Kilbeggan since even more so. That form the best on offer Rules so this looks a golden opportunity.

410-13OR:

Bumped into smart juveniles Gardens Of Babylon and Band Of Outlaws before Christmas but latest sixth beaten 8¾L by aforementioned merits a great deal of respect in this company.

Betting

Forecast

Touch Of Oscar (4/6), Game Present (3/1), Rip Rocks Paddy Ok (7/2), Market Parade (14/1), Grouse Hall (25/1), Kearney (33/1), Gone Racing (33/1), Pass Cross (50/1)

Verdict

TOUCH OF OSCAR has been steadily progressing and may not need any more improvement after his close second at Kilbeggan latest which surely is form good enough to win a race such as this. The logical threat is Rip Rocks Paddy Ok who was a fair juvenile late on in 2018. Best of the rest may be newcomer to Rules Game Present who represents top connections.
