Verdict

YOUNG HURRICANE ran well in a bumper at this track on his recent comeback. Related to winning hurdlers and chasers in France, he may be up to scoring over timber at the first time of asking. Lord Of The Dunes will be fancied on his return given his yard is in such fine form and Portrait Emotion makes his debut under Rules having won a point-to-point last year. Mr Mistopheles cost 72,000euros and may figure along with Bertie's Desire, a half-brother to hurdle winner Princely Player.
