Verdict

OSCARSLAD missed the whole of last year and was making his chasing debut when third at Exeter. He ran well for a long way on that occasion and should have come on for both the run and the experience. Old Tricks posted his best effort so far over fences when making the frame at Newton Abbot and he's another to consider. Bit Of A Clown was sent off favourite in a lower grade chase at Plumpton but never threatened while Market Option should improve for last month's chasing debut effort at Stratford.
