More people, like you, are reading and supporting the Guardian’s independent, investigative journalism than ever before. And unlike many news organisations, we made the choice to keep our reporting open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay. Whether we are up close or further away, the Guardian brings our readers a global perspective on the most critical issues of our lifetimes – from the escalating climate catastrophe to widespread inequality to the influence of big tech on our lives. We believe complex stories need context in order for us to truly understand them. At a time when factual information is a necessity, we believe that each of us, around the world, deserves access to accurate reporting with integrity at its heart.Our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. Guardian journalism is free from commercial and political bias and not influenced by billionaire owners or shareholders. This means we can give a voice to those less heard, explore where others turn away, and rigorously challenge those in power.We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to keep delivering quality journalism that’s open and independent. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support The Guardian from as little as $1 – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. Marginal preference is for Lostintranslation (1.50), who was within a length of the winner when second behind Black Op – who was among the five-day entries for this race – in the Grade One Mersey Novice Hurdle at Aintree last season. He has the build to make up into a fine chaser and could well be one of the leading lights in Colin Tizzard’s novice chasing team over the winter. The Pertemps Hurdle qualifier later on in the afternoon is also interesting, not least because the favourite Ready And Able (2.55) carries the purple and white colours of Derrick Smith, far more familiar in Group One races on the Flat. Ready And Able notched up two wins in May and June before returning from from a break to win at Aintree last month, and since his latest win was in a conditionals’ event, he gets in off the same mark here. Kapcorse is an obvious favourite for the Dawnus Handicap Chase following a successful chase debut at Bangor in April, but he looks short enough in the betting given that his last start was seven months ago and he is now 12lb higher in the ratings. Siruh Du Lac (3.30) also has an absence to overcome but that is built into his price at around 8-1 and a repeat of the form of either of his wins around this time last year would definitely put him in the mix. Millie The Minx (1.05) should go well in the opener at Sedgefield, while Princess Keira (8.15) and Wotadoll (8.45) could be worth waiting for in the final two races at Chelmsford City.

The previous year’s winner, though, was Bigbadjohn, who went on to win the Reynoldstown at Ascot later on in the campaign and this field includes Lostintranslation, La Bague Au Roi and Thomas Campbell, who were all useful over hurdles while looking likely to be as good, if not better, going chasing.
