Verdict

ROWAN ROAD was racing from out of the handicap when following up her Kelso victory in a conditionals' race at Catterick six days ago. She doesn't have a penalty here and will probably start at short odds to complete her hat-trick with Adrian Lane back in the saddle. Recent form figures flatter both Lady Of Verona and Royal Curtsy while Bene Lad would have to recapture his best form to figure and that may not be easy at his age. Heart O' The West has been generally disappointing over hurdles and will do well to make the frame again here, even in modest company.
