Fairly useful 20f chase winner who landed handicap at Perth (20.1f, soft) in September. Disappointing since, including after 5 months off at Market Rasen when upped to this trip.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

DARCY WARD possibly cost himself a victory when back to form in this headgear here last month, holding every chance when causing interference to his 2 rivals on the run-in, and he's taken to redeem himself up only 2 lb. Oscar Montel has made a positive start over fences for this yard and is next best ahead of the consistent Delight of Dubai.

Betting Forecast

7/2 Delight Of Dubai (Ire), 6/1 Oscar Montel (Ire), 10/1 Ready And Able (Ire), 11/1 Nikap (Fr), 22/1 Spider's Bite (Ire), 12/1 Dancing In The Sky (Ire), 22/1 Stage Summit (Ire)
