Verdict

OGEE sets a stiff standard for the others and we select him at the principal expense of Shore Thing and Quechua Des Obeaux. A winner at Uttoxeter, the Robeson charge confirmed the impression of a fair run behind Punchestowns at the back end of last term and on that recent evidence, he looks to have improved for a few months' break. Shore Thing has to give away a winners' double penalty. Well campaigned by his trainer, he'll need to be smart to see off the penalties. Quechua Des Obeaux has been spoken of as a useful recruit by Phillip Hobbs in the various stable tours. In receipt of plenty of allowances, she will be getting almost a stone from the previous British winners. Berkeley Castle had fair form on the level for Sir Michael Stoute but an American adventure clearly didn't work out. Subsequent runs on the flat have yielded very little fruit. Theatrical Moment has proved a bitter disappointment for his punters in Novice events and is not one to trust. Viable was well beaten in previous forays over hurdles. Ex-French handicapper, Right Stuff, is closely monitored in the market. A good race and Ogee is the selection in an event that will throw up plenty of future winners.
