Oscara Dara the one to beat says Vaughan
TIM VAUGHAN, who used to train leading Welsh Champion Hurdle fancy Tanerko Emery, prefers the chances of Ladbroke winner Oscara Dara in today's feature race at Ffos Las.
Owned by Ffos Las founder Dai Walters, Tanerko Emery is now trained by David Pipe and goes into the 2m4f contest on the back of two victories on heavy ground in December at Sandown and Lingfield.
However, the impressive nature of Oscara Dara's Kempton success tips the balance in his favour according to Vaughan.
"Tanerko Emery is a progressive horse but if you compare recent form with Oscara Dara it's worlds apart," Vaughan said on The Morning Line.
"If Oscara Dara runs his race he'll be hard to beat - even with all that weight, class is class."
Vaughan, who is represented in the race by Trop Fort, has a total of six runners on the lucrative Ffos Las card.
Ffos Las: Heavy
Sandown: Heavy, back straight soft
Wetherby: Soft, heavy in places
