Verdict

HOUSTON DYNIMO is worth sticking with. He carries a double penalty for his wins at Market Rasen and at this track last time but ran out an eight-length winner on his latest start and the hat-trick beckons over this longer trip. The Irish-trained Benefique made a successful raid at Wetherby earlier this month and a conditional reduces her penalty by 3lb, while Super Duty is worth keeping an eye on having won a bumper on his racecourse debut in April. A multiple winner on the Flat, Persian Peril makes his hurdling debut along with Henok, whose brother has scored over timber, and the 115,000 euros purchase Catch That.
