Lucinda Russell's point winner Saint Freule is tongue-tied on his first Rules appearance and it would be no surprise if Blair Campbell was able to steer him to victory. However, NICEANDEASY was an easy winner of a Newcastle bumper on his racecourse debut in March and could take all the beating here if turning up in the same form. Malcolm Jefferson's Only Orvieto has to come into calculations also, although the handler's horses have been needing their first run and others could be fitter in the finish here.

Well-bred filly who marked herself down as above average when defying a penalty to land an Aintree bumper 6 months ago and has very little to beat switched to hurdling, so should make a winning start.

Successful in two NH flat races at 2m 1f on good and good to soft ground. A winner at 14-1 in a Grade 2 NH flat race in the Group 2 Goffs Nickel Coin Mares' Standard Open NH Flat Race at Aintree over 2m 1f (good) on her latest outing in April, beating Oscar Rose by 1/2l.

DAME ROSE was a bit in and out in bumpers but she did end her career in that sphere with a victory in a Grade 2 at Aintree in April. If the daughter of Network can run to that level today then it would be hugely surprising if she were to be beaten in this mediocre event. The Linksman beat a useful rival in a Sedgefield bumper in December but it is a big concern that he ran out on his only subsequent start. Royal Flag was useful enough on the Flat, winning twice, and any market support for him would have to be noted.

Certainly not the force of old (rated 143) at his peak, but at least offered a glimmer of encouragement when third at Kelso 6 months ago, and interesting that he's tongue tied for the first time here.

Has won three hurdle races, a NH flat race, three chases and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m 1f on ground varying from good to heavy, but last win was over three years ago. Third of 9 behind Scotswell beaten 13l at 10-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Kelso over 3m 2f (good) in April.

He has won two hurdle races, a chase and a point-to-point from 2m 1f to 3m on ground varying from good to soft, but last win was over two years ago. Pulled up at the last when 9-1 here over 2m 4f (good to soft) in a hurdle race won by Champagne Chaser last month on his latest outing.

PURCELL'S BRIDGE had been off the track for a long time prior to his three starts towards the end of last season. He won well at Haydock in March and was not disgraced when finishing fourth at Wetherby last time out. It's a long time since Green Flag finished second in a Grade 1 at Kempton but there was some encouraging signs in his most recent effort at Kelso in April. Red Giant was disappointing at Bangor recently but has a chance based on his previous Kelso success.
