Liberty Court won a point-to-point in April and has to be of interest on his debut under Rules. Dance Of Time wasn't beaten far when third at Huntingdon in April and Lukie only found one too good at Sedgefield in May. Desgrey and Northern Executive are also open to improvement, as is Sedgefield third Captive Moment, while Monoco Man could be a newcomer to note. ENCHANTED GARDEN didn't do a lot wrong on his introduction at Kelso, however, and expected improvement should see him go one better here.
