TIGGER is probably the safest option here as Flying Doctor was engaged to run at Hereford yesterday. David Pipe's charge was second over 2m3f here 12 days ago and will appreciate a return to the longer trip over which he was third to stablemate Surfboard previously. Always Cruising hasn't been seen since disappointing at Stratford in May, while C&D winner Lomitaar has been well below his best so far this season. King Benny is back on a winning mark, however, and his latest fifth at Worcester was a step in the right direction - he may be the danger to the selection.
