Form & Verdict
Two hurdle wins this spring, latterly when rewarding very patient Charlotte Jones ride with 25l success here (2m6f, good to soft) in early June; pulled up behind Benito here since, though, and still needs to prove he can cope with mark this high.

Collared Liffeydale Dreamer to win this race off 2lb higher last year and was back in form with narrow success in refitted cheekpieces at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) two weeks ago; likely contender.

Form & Verdict
Gained all three wins here, the latest by 14l over C&D (good) in May; didn't fire when a long way behind Benito over 2m6f here three weeks ago and remains on fairly tough mark but it won't be a big surprise if she features.

Form & Verdict
Dug deep to win Worcester chase (2m7f, good to soft) last month and again prevailed by a head when back over hurdles there (2m7f, good) ten days later; recent 3lb rise doesn't look excessive, and today's longer trip will suit; one to consider.

J: Sean Bowen

T: Peter Bowen

Had very mixed campaign last season but won over fences at Sedgefield (3m2f, good to soft) in January and was back in good form when close second in Uttoxeter chase (3m, good) 16 days ago; doesn't often run over hurdles but won a C&D novice in 2020 and his current mark ought to be workable; cheekpieces removed; tongue-tie fitted.

Form & Verdict
Safely held on stable debut in May but held on well for narrow course win (2m6f, good to soft) three weeks ago; still has fairly low mileage and is open to further improvement over today's longer trip; respected.

Helped by the good ground when drawing nicely clear at Chepstow (2m3f, good) and only weakened out of the picture late on when favourite to follow up at Market Rasen (2m4f); that was after an 11lb rise and he might be on a tough mark now; recently left Tom Lacey for £15,500.

Form & Verdict
Well beaten over 2m1f last month, after a break, but reportedly benefited from step up in trip when winning over C&D (good to soft) by 6l in refitted cheekpieces three weeks ago; should be fine on today's faster ground; big player if in similar form again.

Betting Forcast

10/1 Jelski, 7/2 Catchmeifyoucan, 7/2 Liffeydale Dreamer, 10/1 Dalkingstown, 3/1 Benito, 100/30 Bintheredonethat, 7/2 William Hill Racing Radio Handicap Hurdle

Verdict

Benito and Bintheredonethat (preferred in that order) were both last-time-out course winners, while Dalkingstown is also considered after last month’s two Worcester victories. However, CATCHMEIFYOUCAN (nap) was back in good nick at Uttoxeter a fortnight ago and remains below the mark off which she won this race a year ago. She gets the nod.[Chris Wilson]
