Tokay Dokey has some useful bumper/hurdle winners in his pedigree and looks a very interesting newcomer for Dan Skelton but POTTERS TALE sets a fairly good standard, having finished fourth in what is usually a good bumper on Scottish Grand National day at Ayr last month. Encore Champs and Peachey are other likely contenders.[Chris Wilson]
