In depth

Verdict

Hurdling debutant Oslo has won twice on the all-weather but is 0-9 on Turf. MIDNIGHTS LEGACY (NAP) had a couple of outings over hurdles last season and arrives off the back of a profitable campaign on the level. He is on the verge of Listed class in that sphere and should have too much for Fontwell runner-up Haddex Des Obeaux in receipt of 6lb.
