Verdict

Queen Of The Hill showed nothing over hurdles last year but has improved massively since reverting to bumpers and was an impressive winner at Downpatrick last month. Hilary had a couple of poor outings over hurdles in the spring but has shown better form on the Flat recently and has plenty of improvement in her. LANDENSTOWN LADY had shown potential on the Flat here and in France before a very unlucky loser on her hurdling debut here a year ago when she fell while leading at the last. She hasn't run since October but that form would be good enough for this and hopefully she'll be fit enough. Wild Friday made a promising debut in a bumper on this track before returning with a poor effort behind today's rival Queen Of The Hill which wasn't her true form. Cooper's Dream may prove best of the remainder.
