Cara's Oscar tackles 3m for the first time but was a very easy winner over 2m6f at Fairyhouse in April. Celestial Prospect will enjoy the decent ground but fell on his reappearance at Punchestown, though was closing on the leaders at the time. Raajih is very well treated on his chase form but hasn't raced over hurdles since 2012. Point The Toes was second at Downpatrick last week but that was his best run for quite a while. FOOT SOLDIER looks primed for this having finished third over 2m on the Flat at Limerick two weeks ago. Earlier evidence suggests this could be his trip nowadays.
