Verdict

OFFSHORE OSCAR can build on an impressive performance at the Cheltenham November meeting, when finishing third of 23, landing the spoils in a competitive contest under Paul Townend. The seven-year-old can see off competition from potential improver, Sunset Sadie and the promising, It's Only A Number, in the colours of J P McManus. The six-year-old mare, Rolanna and Gavin Cromwell's Gagas Horse deserve consideration.
  1. Offshore Oscar
  2. Sunset Sadie
  3. It's Only A Number
