GOODBYE DANCER has a double penalty to carry but it's difficult finding a viable alternative to the easy Market Rasen and Stratford winner. Love Tangle and Magic Magnolia showed nothing on their hurdling debuts while Nellie Elegant finished last in both starts on the Flat after winning on the Polytrack in February. David Pipe introduces Sinndar's Man, who is a half-brother to a winning jumper, so he's probably the danger.
