Edmunds is keeping an eye on the ground ahead of the olbg.com Yorkshire Rose Mares' Hurdle for Maria's Benefit, who took her winning run to four with a 30-length romp in a Listed contest at Taunton last month.
"I wouldn't want it too soft, which is what I said before she went to Taunton," said the Newport Pagnell handler. She just keeps on galloping."
Classic Ben is more likely to fulfil his engagement in the Albert Bartlett River Don Novices' Hurdle at the South Yorkshire venue, rather than go to Cheltenham for the Ballymore Classic Novices' Hurdle.
The five-year-old has made a promising start to his hurdling career, with victories at Fakenham and Huntingdon, both last month.
Edmunds believes Classic Ben will be suited by the step up to three miles at Doncaster, rather than staying at around two and a half miles at Cheltenham.
"He's in at Cheltenham and Doncaster in the River Don. I think he will probably go there," he said.
