The Sportsman's Verdict
JUST DON'T ASK displayed some promise on his debut over fences last month and this dual hurdles winner is entitled to improve for that experience. Niven won well on his debut for these connections at Hexham 23 days ago but the 6lb penalty he has to carry is a concern and he ran at Huntingdon yesterday, finishing a creditable third. Minnies Secret and Storm Control are others to consider.
