Verdict

Dungarvan Lass makes her hurdling debut after a couple of ordinary performances in bumpers. She may be capable of better but it's difficult to get away from MASSANNIE after she followed up her Uttoxeter win with another decisive victory under a penalty at Stratford. Emerald Rose was more than 11 lengths behind the selection at Uttoxeter and the Worcester winner will do well to reverse that form here, despite re-opposing on better terms, while Night Of Passion got no further than the second on debut. Ailanthus has won a couple of point-to-points but was tailed off on his hurdles bow.
