Verdict

This shouldn't take much winning and OSCAR'S SECRET looks the one to be on. Kim Bailey's charge took a long time to get going on his debut at Huntingdon in December but stayed on nicely once the penny dropped and this should be within his compass. Ballycracken started favourite in a Plumpton event won by Grands Crus a couple of years ago and didn't run badly but his latest form has been very poor. Leath Acra Mor improved with every run in bumpers but has shown nothing in two starts over hurdles while Orangeaday struggled on when tackling 2m1f at Bangor and should be suited by this trip.
