Forecast

Benson (4/6), Caddyhill (9/2), Courtland (9/2), Dens Delight (10/1), The Gold Bug (20/1), That's Me (33/1), Li'l Sebastian (40/1), Notnownotnever (80/1), Members Bounce (100/1), Dee Lane (100/1), A Falling Star (100/1), Clondaw Tonic (125/1), Dansant Express (150/1), Final Sting (200/1)

Verdict

BENSON's jumping is a slight concern but this is a significant drop in class for him having contested listed/Grade 2 events on his first 2 hurdle starts in February and this useful bumper winner could be a cut above this opposition. Fellow bumper scorer Courtland could be a threat, while Olly Murphy's Dens Delight also offered enough in bumpers to suggest he can make an impact over hurdles.
