Verdict

Son Of Oscar finished a close-up second in a Grade 3 novice chase at Galway back in October and on that form is the one to beat, but he seems best on a faster surface than he'll encounter here and preference is for MOVILLE. The best of these over hurdles with three wins in testing ground to his name, Martin Brassil's charge is taken to make a winning start over fences. Just Friends won over timber at Punchestown last time and could figure on his chasing bow along with Big Secret, who fell over fences at Tipperary before winning back over hurdles last month.
