Verdict

These qualifiers are rarely short of interest and the big yards are well represented again, no doubt targeting a few of their charges at the final itself next March. Philip Hobbs' Pateese and Arthurian Legend are near the head of the weights but they are headed by Free To Dream, courtesy of the penalty he received for winning at Market Rasen last week. Western Warhorse only found stablemate Home Run too good over a shorter trip at Cheltenham earlier this month and is the pick of the Pipe duo while Seventh Sign and Twelve Roses have place claims. McCoy's mount Minella For Steak is on a hat-trick, as is Invicta Lake, while Fourovakind was a progressive sort last season. Valid Reason came back to form at Sandown last time but the vote goes to CHIBERTA KING. Winner of the Queen Alexandra Stakes at Royal Ascot this year and fourth in the Cesarewitch, he should be suited by this first try over 3m and has already won here over hurdles on soft ground.
