Verdict

Not the easiest of finishes but WISE OSCAR can revert to chasing on such a lenient mark after an easy victory over hurdles here that he has to get the nod to gain his first success over the bigger obstacles. Dunroe Boy is another on a fair mark over fences and he's been unlucky not to lose his maiden tag while a thorough test of stamina will suit Shellys Creek, as it did when she finished a very good second to Tarquinius over the C&D on New Year's Day. The veteran Mister Farmer is just 3lb higher than when scoring easily here in April so he's another who can get involved along with Valley Of Thrushes, who doesn't have too many miles on the clock despite his age and battled on strongly to score at Limerick.
