Verdict

OSCAR AMY obviously suffered no ill-effects for her fall here earlier in the month. The winning pointer was well-backed that day and can recoup losses as Grand Exit ran a shocker on her reappearance over a longer trip at Huntingdon having finished second on her belated hurdling debut at Market Rasen last summer. Call Me April was placed in a couple of bumpers around this time last year but has shown nothing on the Flat since while K Island has been well beaten in all races to date.
