Forecast

Offshore Oscar (7/4), Gagas Horse (4/1), It's Only A Number (8/1), Sunset Sadie (10/1), Antimatter (11/1), Hows Patsy (12/1), Rolanna (14/1), Ange D'Or Javilex (14/1), From Eden (16/1), Moylisha Tim (20/1), Seskinane (25/1), Nine Stiches (25/1), Wade Harper (33/1), Force Of Forces (33/1)

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
