OSCAR GOGO looks to have plenty going for him here. Already a winner over these fences, he won easily in heavy ground over today's trip at Chepstow last time and is taken to defy a 13lb rise. Frontier Spirit looks to be on the up with a couple of recent victories to his credit including one at this track and he makes more appeal than both U B Carefull and Kimberlite King, but French import El Lobo is of more interest. He's won two of his last three start over fences at Lyon Parilly and makes his debut for David Pipe here.
