    Verdict

    It’s difficult to oppose JUST DON’T ASK in the opener. He was second in testing ground at Chepstow last month with no less than three subsequent winners behind. Mr Sandgate and Trust Me I'm A Dr have shown little so far over timber while Geronimo and J And M Greengairs make their belated debuts at the ages of seven and 10 respectively. Hurricane Volta is a modest handicapper on the Flat and debuts over hurdles on his first start for Gordon Elliott.
