Already successful between the flags and a winner over hurdles at Worcester in July, DO YOU KNOW WHAT looks fairly treated on his debut over the larger obstacles and Dan Skelton will be keen to find a race for him before the mud starts flying. Lake Baikal and Duc Kauto are others tackling fences for the first time but Seeanythingyoulike is now 0-14 under Rules having failed to justify market support last time at Warwick when 3lb lower. Wisecracker has proved even more difficult to place.
