Verdict

Night Of Passion steps up in grade in a bid to land the hat-trick but he's in such good form that a three-timer isn't out of the question. Royal Native raced with the choke out when fancied at Chepstow last time and didn't get home. But he still finished ahead of the disappointing Virginia Ash, who won this last year. Kind Of Easy made no show back over hurdles at Lingfield but this longer trip might help and he makes more appeal than Flemi Two Toes and Rocky Bender, who have also spent time over fences lately. SARANDO has to overturn Chepstow form last month with Virginia Ash but produced a much better effort at Warwick next time. He's on a decent mark at present and could play a part in this if still in the mood.
