She is a very good mare!— Timeform Live (@TimeformLive) April 13, 2019
VERDANA BLUE shows her rivals a clean pair of heels in the Scottish Champion Hurdle!
Travelled powerfully under @Conbrace01 and sprinted away from them after the last!

Tom Goff did the bidding on behalf of Tabor and after seeing off Anthony Bromley in the ring at 370,000 guineas, he told www.tattersalls.com: "She is the most beautiful National Hunt mare I have seen in years.
"She is for Michael Tabor and will be going back into training with Nicky Henderson.
"She is by Getaway, who is doing so well as a NH sire, and she will be targeted now at the Christmas Hurdle.
"What happens after and whether she goes to Cheltenham will depend on her run at Kempton, but she obviously will be a fabulous broodmare for the future."
Tabor, while best known as part of the powerful Coolmore triumvirate with John Magnier and Derrick Smith, is no stranger to National Hunt racing.
His Royal Derbi, trained by Neville Callaghan, won the AIG Europe Champion Hurdle in 1993 and went on to finish second to Granville Again in the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham.
He has also tasted Grade One success with Jonjo O'Neill's Refinement.
Coplow, the dam of 1000 Guineas and Sun Chariot Stakes winner Billesdon Brook, was sold in foal to Kingman for 2.1 million guineas to Coolmore's MV Magnier.
He said: "She has done it already, let's hope she can continue. She is in foal to a hot stallion.
"I will imagine she will go to Galileo, but I will have to speak with the lads."
Group Three winner Dandhu was bought by Juddmonte for 750,000 guineas, but top sprinter Mabs Cross was bought back by owner David Armstrong.
