Winning pointer DANNANCEYS HILL went very close over hurdles at Southwell in March. No doubt his long-term future lies over fences but he should be good enough to land this en route. Ifyouthinkso, another winner between the flags, also has scope but may need more time while Imperial Vic should also do better when tackling the larger obstacles. Edmund and L'Eminence Grise have looked one-paced so far but still look the pick of the remainder.
