It's difficult to know what to make of these Charity races and it's not certain that there will be any betting. Oscar Gale won a similar race at Fairyhouse last month and has had a couple of races over hurdles subsequently including at Limerick on Saturday. Ocean Bright started a very short price in that event at Fairyhouse but was well beaten while Paramount hasn't been running badly on the Flat. EMBLAZON is having his first start for Mick Halford having arrived from France where he scored for Andre Fabre. He's given a tentative vote though the betting, if there is any, should tell us more.
