Verdict

This looks a race where Presentingoscar and COTTONVALE look the ones to concentrate on given their proven fitness and current levels of form. Preference is for the latter as he looks the better jumper and his rider is excellent value for his claim. Battling Spirit, Oisin James and Good To Flow are to be noted in the market, whilst Nerual is probably better than her form looks and is a potential improver.
  1. Cottonvale
