Verdict

PRINCE BUSTER is making hard work of losing his maiden tag after a string of placed efforts. This is his easiest task so far, however, and he gets the nod on the back of a second at Worcester. Dineur has won off today's mark over hurdles and may finish closer on only his third start over fences but Bendant returns to action off a 10lb higher mark than when scoring at Chepstow back in February. Fabulous Fred finished last of four on his comeback and chasing debut and is probably best watched for now.
