Verdict

Midnight Oscar was well backed on his chasing bow at Wincanton but never looked happy and unseated his rider at the fifth. CINEVATOR went on to finish second in that race and races off the same mark. The top weight seems to have taken well to fences and could defy top weight as Annacotty and Present View are other recent beaten favourites while Off The Ground, Super Villain and Billy Dutton all lack a recent run. Badgers Cove was disappointing last season but looks nicely treated on his reappearance and could have each-way claims.
