After a very easy victory in a Hexham bumper, Definite Row has twice finished runner-up at Perth when strongly fancied. She has a fine jumping pedigree and is certain to attract support on her hurdling debut. VIA DEL CORSO doesn't have the best of strike-rates and has run eleven times over timber without winning but her overall form is strong enough to give her a winning opportunity here. Winning bumper Myblueeyedgirl will have benefited from her opening run over timber while Overnova enters the fray in winning form having scored between the flags in May.
