FIERY OSCAR and Cheap As Chips both arrive in winning form and it's the former, who followed an excellent second over the track and trip by going one better here, who is handed the vote to complete the double. Cheap As Chips was handed a soft lead when scoring comfortably at Wexford and may not be able to dominate in this stronger event. Pretty Happy has won once in 39 starts over timber and is out of form and Golan Guy should do better when sent back over fences.
