Verdict

Victor Hewgo won three times over hurdles last season, including once here. But he's already a nine-year-old and may just need this after a lengthy absence. KARINGA DANCER is being aimed at the Jewson at The Festival and will have to win this if he's to justify those lofty ambitions. He wasn't foot-perfect over this track and trip on his chasing bow but never looked like falling and won easily enough in the end. He has a turn of foot and can defy his penalty as the unexposed Western Warhorse will almost certainly need further than this in time while Walkabout Creek, another useful hurdler, hasn't taken to fences so far. My Dads Horse needed the run at Ascot in November, however, and could have a future over fences.
