DOCTOR DEX made an encouraging debut over hurdles when finishing second at Musselburgh last month and that form gives him a big chance this afternoon. Constancio is another who has been knocking on the door and he could pose the biggest threat to the selection. Garbanzo was far from disgraced in a Grade 2 at Ascot on his first start over obstacles and it would be no surprise to see him take a hand in the finish.

JUST DON'T ASK displayed some promise on his debut over fences last month and this dual hurdles winner is entitled to improve for that experience. Niven won well on his debut for these connections at Hexham 23 days ago but the 6lb penalty he has to carry is a concern and he ran at Huntingdon yesterday, finishing a creditable third. Minnies Secret and Storm Control are others to consider.

TREE OF LIBERTY shaped with an abundance of promise when runner-up at Ludlow on his seasonal bow last month and is entitled to step up on that effort with the benefit of the outing behind him. Kauto Riko has been raised 8lb for his authoritative success at Haydock three weeks ago and is the one expected to put up most resistance, while Beau Bay could feasibly figure if reproducing the form he showed last spring.
