Verdict

Karinga Dancer's winning streak came to an end in the Grade 2 Elite Hurdle at Wincanton last month. He's likely to prove popular on his first start over fences but has PRINCELY PLAYER to beat in this. The latter didn't take long to make his mark over the larger obstacles, making all to win a beginners' event at Ludlow recently. Philip Hobbs' charge is taken to shrug off a penalty as he still has plenty in hand on today's terms with Woodbank, a runner-up over track and trip on his latest start. Dreamy George has shown little so far and was tailed off when favourite in a hunter chase at Fakenham back in March.
