Timeform pick out three bets from Worcester on Thursday...
Get Ready Freddy showed much improved form to regain the winning thread at Uttoxeter last time and remains potentially well treated from just 8 lb higher in the weights here. He looks set to give another good account for the Dan Skelton yard that can seemingly do no wrong. Maximus Maridius has been running well over hurdles of late and can give the selection most to do.
Global Citizen is a half-brother to the useful bumper winner and smart hurdler De Plotting Shed, and connections forked out £275,000 following his point win on debut in April, so he has a lot to recommend him in what looks an above-average contest. Cereal Killer was successful on both starts between the flags and is feared most on his Rules debut for Paul Nicholls.
Counter Shy created a favourable impression when much too strong for a useful Flat type (next-time-out winner) over C&D 24 days ago, and is expected to make it two from two in this sphere, with further improvement likely to be forthcoming. Sword of Fate shaped well when second on his hurdling debut at Warwick last month and looks the main danger in an interesting heat.
