OSKAR'S EVA has a penalty to carry for an easy Uttoxeter victory but is hard to oppose given none of his rivals have been in the best of form lately. Jim Best and Gary Moore are both double-handed with Generous Jack looking the pick of the former's pair while Yukon Delta is probably best of the latter's duo. Rolling Dough and Bondi Mist looks the pick of the remainder.
