Inconsistent sort who ran no sort of race last time after a good second in handicap at Market Rasen. Change of headgear.

Verdict

MARTHA'S BENEFIT is unbeaten in her two starts since joining Mark Walford and despite the 10lb rise for her comfortable Cartmel victory, she can prove the one to beat once again with the champion jockey retaining the partnership in the saddle. The best of Overtoujay's recent form would see him involved at a course he has run well at in the past, while Old Pride and Royal Supremo could easily get involved with clear rounds of jumping.

Verdict

MARTHA'S BENEFIT has clearly thrived for joining a professional yard and is taken to land the hat-trick. Old Pride is feared most ahead of Overtoujay.

Point winner but a poor maiden hurdler and hard to fancy on chase bow after 9 months away.

Verdict

Former Swinton and Summer Hurdle winner JOHN CONSTABLE was deemed good enough to contest the Champion Hurdle in the spring and if proving anywhere near as effective now chasing, he should be hard to beat on his fencing bow. One For Billy has impressed in this sphere the last twice and should keep the selection on his toes, while Gustave Mahler was only beaten a short head over course and distance last time and has to be respected.

Verdict

JOHN CONSTABLE has a Swinton Hurdle and Listed Summer Hurdle to his name and has an obvious chance to make a successful chasing debut if anywhere near the pick of his best form over the smaller obstacles. One For Billy is a massive player seeking a hat-trick, while Gustave Mahler shouldn't be long in winning in this sphere.

Ultra-consistent front-running handicap chaser in 2016/17 but returns on an average mark and will probably need a few runs to get back up and running following an absence.

Verdict

TOO MANY DIAMONDS saw his unbeaten run come to an end when denied by just half a length in Market Rasen's Summer Plate and despite being raised 7lb, Dan Skelton's chaser can add to his stellar record at this track. Hargam was well punted when obliging at Warwick in May and a 7lb hike could be manageable on his first run since. Newton Geronimo and Voix D'Eau should finish closer together on these terms, with the former having beaten his rival by nine lengths at Worcester. Jaleo impressed at that same venue last time and is another who could figure.

Verdict

TOO MANY DIAMONDS is arguably the most progressive jumper around in the last year or so and he's 3 from 3 over this C&D, so there's no reason to oppose him on the back of another tremendous effort when narrowly denied in a competitive event at Market Rasen. Jaleo is unexposed over fences and open to further improvement and Hagam still has plenty of scope on old form, so they're both considered.

Runner-up in maiden hurdle and a bumper in Ireland for Willie Mullins last spring but didn't achieve a great deal for Alexandra Dunn and has since moved yards. Handicap mark looks too high.

Verdict

ZEBI BOY has thrived since being stepped up in trip this summer, and the three-time Uttoxeter scorer looks set to defy a further 7lb rise and extend his winning sequence. The Devils Drop has routed the opposition the last twice and should prove a tough rival to the selection having improved since undergoing wind surgery. Mighty Leader, who has won twice this campaign, is another who can go well switching back to hurdles.

Verdict

ZEBI BOY is progressing fast and was arguably value for extra when completing the hat-trick last time as he made several mistakes, so the winning sequence may not end yet. Mighty Leader has been given a short break and can give him most to think about.

5/2, first run since leaving Susan Corbett when respectable fourth of 12 in handicap hurdle at Cartmel (22.1f, good to firm) in June. Clearly backed as though capable of better.

Verdict

SHEELBEWHATSHEELBE made a winning start for Dan Skelton at Perth over 3m last time and it will be interesting to see if she can build on that effort on what is her second start since having a breathing operation. Beautiful People picked up minor money over C&D latest and can fight it out for the silver medal with Little Windmill, who has bolted up over fences and timber the last twice and appears on top of his game right now.

Verdict

SHEELBEWHATSHEELBE was yet another to make a winning debut for the switch to Dan Skelton at Perth 18 days ago, ultimately scoring with more in hand than the length margin implies. She can defy a 6 lb higher mark, with Little Windmill, who is in rude health himself, feared most. Jonagold and Walk Waterford are also worth keeping an eye on.

Won 2m event in Ireland in 2014 for Jessica Harrington but not the same force for this yard in 3 runs last season and been off again since November.

Verdict

BARON VON CHILL posted his best effort this year when scoring over a similar trip here in May and may be able to step up on the level of form he's shown at Ffos Las the last twice now he returns to this venue. Box Office is fitted with first-time blinkers after fading into third over fences at Uttoxeter last time and could play a minor role, likewise Blazon, who sports a first-time visor and has recently undergone wind surgery.

Verdict

BENNY IN MILAN caught the eye in a competitive Galway handicap 3 weeks ago and could be ready to strike in these calmer waters. Ebonys Encore could be interesting on her handicap debut for a new stable, while her former trainer runs Box Office, who might be capable of a big run in first-time blinkers, especially if backed.

Half-sister to 5 winners, including high-class hurdler Katchit. Positives to draw from efforts in a bumper/maiden hurdles so fare but is likely one for the longer term.

Verdict

KING'S RESTE was 0-6 for Amy Murphy but a breathing operation prior to joining Dan Skelton appears to have done her the world of good and she now arrives on a hat-trick after winning back-to-back chases at Newton Abbot and Uttoxeter. She's unlikely to be fazed by the switch back to hurdles and gets the verdict ahead of Worcester maiden scorer Blackdown Hills and Grania O'Malley, who struck over C&D in May.

Verdict

KING'S RESTE defends an unbeaten record for Dan Skelton (both wins gained over fences) and with these fixed-brush obstacles likely to suit back hurdling, she can make the most of the weight she receives from Blackdown Hills and Grania O'Malley.
