Timeform have The Package as their highest-rated runner in Saturday's Hennessy Gold Cup but believe Bobs Worth could progress past him.

The Package: Best in on Timeform's ratings

The latter has been the ante-post favourite for Newbury's feature contest since the markets were formed and Nicky Henderson's improving seven-year-old is still a strong fancy on his seasonal return.

However the Yorkshire firm actually rate David Pipe's recent Badger Ales Trophy winner The Package 2lbs ahead of him at Saturday's weights.

Meanwhile up at Newcastle, the progressive Cinders And Ashes, winner of the Supreme Novices' Hurdle last season, is 3lbs clear of his main rival, the Triumph Hurdle winner Countrywide Flame.
