Verdict

PRINCELY PLAYER is a rare runner here for Philip Hobbs and should be the answer to this Limited handicap, despite making his chasing bow. He's been in very good form over hurdles this autumn and is by no means harshly treated on the best of his efforts over the smaller obstacles, despite top weight. Robbie has won four times over hurdles and made a successful start to his chasing career at Huntingdon in the spring, jumping well. He rates the danger on his return as Irish raider Katys Girl, though in good order, carries more than her allotted weight as does Castlelawn, who may be out of his depth.
