Verdict

The Jennie Candlish team continues in fine form so OSCARS LEADER is selected to build on his good reappearance run behind a progressive sort at Sandown. Goobinator is respected on the back of his Ayr win, while this is a little easier than the big-field Cheltenham handicap Hijack ran in last time so it would be no surprise to see him get back on the upgrade.

  1. OSCARS LEADER (IRE)
  2. GOOBINATOR (USA)
  3. HIJACK (IRE)
