Betting

Forecast

Laurina (11/8), Elfile (6/4), Black Tears (4/1), Surin (20/1), Emily Moon (25/1)

Verdict
The 159-rated daughter of Spanish Moon, LAURINA should get back to winning ways here as the seven-year-old returns to hurdling. The Willie Mullins-trained mare was last seen tailing off before being pulled up at Sandown earlier this month but can see off the attentions of stablemate, Elfie who is rated 17lb lower than the selection. The Gordon Elliott pair, Black Tears and Surin can compete for remaining prize money.
