Finian's Oscar The One To Beat

Finian's Oscar is one of the most talked about horses in training at the moment for Colin Tizzard, and he is sure to start favourite on Saturday. The horse was forced to miss Cheltenham having picked up an injury and it will be fascinating to see how he has recovered from that knock.

The bare form of his four wins so far this season is solid, without being spectacular, but the trainer has been talking him up as a very nice horses indeed and he remains unbeaten so he could really be anything.

This is certainly a big step up in class for Finian's Oscar but his reputation is a tall one which means he is likely to start favourite at 11/4 with Paddy Power.

A Competitive Field To Take On The Favourite

Brio Conti has been a difference horse on his last two starts with two impressive performances, and Paul Nicholls will be hoping he is a future star. He was visually very impressive last time at Kempton in handicap company which is interesting but this is of course a much tougher ask.

Le Breuil is another one of these that swerved Cheltenham and this contest will tell us just how good he is for Ben Pauling. He was hugely impressive in a weaker race at Newbury last time out and he is another one that comes in with a big reputation on his home work.

Punters who fancy Le Breuil can currently get a price of 5/1 with Paddy Power which looks fair enough given his undoubted class.

Messire Des Obeaux (7/1) is a rock solid animal at 2m4f for Alan King and sets a strong standard after his 3rd place in the Neptune last month at Cheltenham Backing up from a tough run is a big ask for a young horse though and he is best watched on this occasion.

Lough Derg Spirit (5/1) impressed last time out when winning the Scottish Supreme Trial last time out for Nicky Henderson and he is another one that swerved Cheltenham. The defeat of Peter The Mayo Man is solid form but there might be one or two above average in this one, which might make this a tough ask.

Conclusion

This is a very tough betting heat for punters with a number of these open to any amount of improvement. Finian's Oscar is the talking horse but after an injury, we are happy to look elsewhere with Le Breuil the one carrying our money. Hugely impressive at Newbury last time, Ben Pauling has been singing his praises, and that is enough for us to take a chance on him
