What An Oscar could have a future over fences judged on his second to Connectivity at Worcester. SIVOLA DE SIVOLA and Victor Leudorum have already won over the larger obstacles. The former has the greater scope having had just two runs and doesn't look badly treated on his form over hurdles so can concede weight all round. Well Hello There is 9lb higher than when scoring over course and distance in June but is another unexposed novice who is expected to pay his way this season and he won't be far away if fully wound up.
