Plenty of these are worthy of consideration. Arden Denis made a promising start at Market Rasen and Chieftain's Choice stayed on well for fourth at Musselburgh on his debut. Both Go Odee Go and Henrybrowneyes could figure having finished thereabouts in bumpers on the Polytrack at Kempton last time and Colin's Brother has leading claims on his narrow-margin defeat on the Turf at the same track. But THE WEXFORDIAN ran well for a long way in a bumper at Ascot on his recent debut and it's Martin Keighley's charge that gets a tentative vote.
