Handicapper has hiked the chaser Oscar Close (99 to 115 +16lbs) in this weeks revised ratings. Oscar as a sire seems to have caught the eye of the handicapper, or is it that his progeny are doing really well of late ?
The form alone does not really warrant such a rise in the weights.
The NH form does not inspire confidence although chase form obviosuly now with latest win has some merit. Here is record todate : 95/40996222/3853-4FP1
Earlier weeks ratings rise have found his offspring hurdlers, Oscargo (+12lbs), Well Hello There (+13lbs), Oscar Charlie (+13lbs) all topping the revised weekly ratings.
