Verdict

Karinga Dancer ran well in three starts in bumpers early this year without winning and will be a popular choice for a yard in flying form on his hurdling debut. But Victor Dartnall is also turning out plenty of winners and AMBION WOOD gets the vote. He scored by five lengths in a bumper at Uttoxeter in March and can land this if taking to hurdling. Petit Ecuyer already has experience over timber and went close at Lingfield when last seen at the track, while Farbreaga wasn't disgraced on his hurdling debut at this course back in April.
