Verdict

Catchthemoonlight has been in better form lately and was only beaten a head at Cartmel last month. But she's now 0-17 and 4lb higher here. Ganymede has been raised 7lb since landing a gamble here 11 days ago but holds Yul Finegold on that run and should give a good account again. BOLD HENMIE ran well off higher marks at Market Rasen after getting off the mark over timber here in July. He's preferred to Mash Potato, who was still beaten 14 lengths in a maiden hurdle at Cartmel last time, and the lightly-raced Bestwork, who is returning from a break.
