Verdict

What An Oscar won off a higher mark in 2012 but may be in need of a confidence-booster having not taken to fences. Premier Portrait is lightly-raced but recent efforts suggests he's a few pounds too high at present and Castletown, who is even less exposed, has been done no favours by the handicapper either and looks to have little chance of reversing Ffos Las running with RED DEVIL LADS on 4lb worse terms. Rebecca Curtis' novice is no world-beater but A P McCoy is back in the saddle of the winning pointer and he can open his account under Rules as Westaway is proving a big disappointment.
