Forecasts

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.
