OLIVER'S GOLD has been in good form at a decent level over hurdles lately and looks an uncomplicated ride for an inexperienced amateur. He's not badly treated back on the Flat as he gets a couple of pounds from Saturday's Redcar fourth Weybridge Light, who's an infrequent winner nowadays. King's Chorister and Roc De Prince are others who have been jumping recently with the latter preferred as the former can be a tricky sort who has to be produced late.
