Verdict

EXCITING OSCAR came from an unpromising position to get the better of Castlehume Gold at Punchestown last month and, provided the gallop is true, he looks well capable of upholding form with that rival in a weak race that the pair could dominate. Ballymadun, who has a reasonable record at the track, makes most appeal of the remainder.

  1. EXCITING OSCAR (IRE)
