Verdict

VA'VITE is the obvious one here having opened her account over hurdles at Bangor last week. James Banks' claim negates her penalty and she should prove too strong for Dubaianswer, though Tony Coyle's mare wasn't beaten far when a 50/1 chance over track and trip eight days ago when debutant Icy Quiet was back in sixth. Queen Of Epirus was third in a claimer at Doncaster last Friday while Rearrange has a nice Flat pedigree, though how she'll take to hurdles is anybody's guess.
