Verdict

Imperial Legend and Lost In Paris look high enough in the weights now and Oil Strike is 5lb higher than last month's victory at Thirsk. He's been beaten since when behind third-placed Midnight Dynamo over track and trip and the latter has leading claims in this. Secret Advice landed a lower grade handicap over course and distance last month but SHARAARAH was only beaten a head by Angus Og at Thirsk last week. Racing off the same mark today, David O'Meara's filly looks capable of going one better and rates the selection.
