Verdict

Oscar Rose had decent form in bumpers last season and she’s been threatening to win a race over hurdles. Rated 119, she would have been giving Chilli Filli 4lb in a handicap yet is receiving 6lb and finished ahead of that rival on level terms at Ludlow in November. BIG ROBIN has had a wind operation since falling on her hurdling debut at Ludlow last March. Fitness is unlikely to be an issue for Nicky Henderson’s mare, however, and she has already won a point-to-point so might be the one to be on if the market speaks in her favour. Festival Dawn is by Kayf Tara out of a winning chaser so should also make a jumper.
