Verdict

Venetia Williams runs three in this but stable jockey Aidan Coleman is on board MASSENA and he looks the most likely winner. Placed three times over hurdles, he can get the better of Jamie Snowden's Irish import Stormy Oscar. Zipit has finished last in two of his three starts under Rules and was a modest sort in point-to-points. He looks up against it again, even at this modest level.
