The six-year-old returns from a 97-day absence after twice finishing second at Ludlow. Lucy Wadham’s Oasis Dream, a smart sort on the Flat for Mark Johnston, finished fourth to Marada over course and distance 16 days ago. That wasn’t a bad effort, with runner-up Pasvolsky scoring at Kempton on Saturday, although Oasis Prince has stamina doubts to quell.
