Verdict

SHE RANKS ME won a mares' Listed hurdle here last season and will be all the better for her run at Taunton, where she was never on the bridle over a shorter trip. Donald McCain's mare is the selection as Art Professor returns from a lengthy break. Special Catch has claims on his third to More Of That over course and distance four weeks ago but Morning Royalty has struggled in this grade in the past.
