Verdict

Splash of Ginge finished runner-up in a maiden hurdle at Chepstow last time, although both the winner and the third have let the form down since. That suggests OSCAR FORTUNE may well defy a penalty for making a winning debut over hurdles at Huntingdon last month. That was his first start since April and Jonjo O'Neill's charge is also preferred to dual bumper winner Deputy Dan. Glowinginthedark has had just the one start under Rules when fourth in a bumper but makes most appeal of the remainder.
