Run Ructions Run was still beaten a long way when runner-up over 2m4f here last time and should finish closer back over this shorter trip. Born To Benefit showed a bit more at Uttoxeter on her latest start but it would be no surprise if one of the newcomers to hurdling proved good enough. A winner on the all-weather, Dewala would figure if taking to the obstacles, while Villa Royale has won twice over 1m4f on the Flat. But PRINCESS CAETANI is rated higher than both of them on the level and given she's a half-sister to a point-to-point winner, David Dennis' filly gets the vote to make a winning start over hurdles.
