Oscar Prarie was a selection of mine last time out and he ran an odd race, being miles out the back and then flying at the finish . He is obviously capable of this mark and if he is on a going day at all he stands a chance here at 16/1..

1 point win 16/1

Haydock 2:55

Monbeg Dude looks a fair but ahead of these and will be well suited by this test of attrition today. Despite the fact he is favourite, I think 7/1 is value.

1 point win 7/1 generally

3:25 Haydock

Across the bay has a great record around here and even though he hasn’t been great this year he needs to be getting into form for another national tilt. He won a hurdle race around here 2 years ago of a 5 lbs higher mark. Worth a shot at 40/1

1 point ew 40/1 generally
