Verdict

This is very competitive but the unexposed THE BOSSES OSCAR nevertheless stands out on account of his potential. An unlucky fifth in a handicap at the Cheltenham Festival in March, he made a winning return at Thurles and should benefit from this stiffer test. Stablemate Shattered Love resumes in this sphere on a very tempting mark and is next on the list ahead of A Great View and Fan De Blues.

  1. THE BOSSES OSCAR (IRE)
  2. SHATTERED LOVE (IRE)
  3. A GREAT VIEW (IRE)
