Verdict

ELEGANT LASS is a straightforward mare who is going the right way, so she's a fairly obvious choice to land this decidedly weak handicap hurdle having scored at Tramore last month. Most of the others are easy to dismiss but Wheryounow returned from 10 months off with an excellent fourth at Cork and, should he step up on that, could cause the selections some problems.
