CASTLE RUSHEN impressed when landing a heavy-ground bumper here in January and despite being unable to follow up when returned to this venue in March, looks set for a leading role on his hurdles bow with the forecast conditions bringing his stamina in to play. Five Bar Brian's only disappointment last term came in the Champion Bumper and he has to be taken seriously on his debut for Oliver Greenall. Let Me Entertain U was another deemed good enough to contest that Cheltenham Grade 1, but has a few questions to answer following a slightly underwhelming return at Hexham earlier this month. He can fight it out with Keith Dalgleish's Big Jim Dwyer for third.

CAVALRY SCOUT had been knocking on the door at Market Rasen before dropping back to a similar distance to land a deserved victory at Leicester in February and rates as the one to beat on his seasonal bow. He was all out at the finish on that occasion but relishes testing conditions and the track is likely to suit. Roxboro Road has dropped to his last winning mark and is worth a market check as he's still in the early stages of his career with Ben Haslam. The handicapper looks to have the measure of both Calivigny and Mah Mate Bob, but the experienced pair know how to win and can't be completely ruled out, while Lucinda Russell has a solid hand with Katalystic and Book Of Invasions.

CALTEX relished the heavy ground when romping to a 22-length victory on his debut for Michael Scudamore at Leicester in February and despite being handed a 9lb rise from the assessor for that comfortable success, he rates the one to beat on his reappearance as he clearly had plenty in hand at the finish. Up Helly Aa King capped a fine 2019/20 campaign with a six-and-a-half-length triumph at Carlisle in March and is one of two to consider for handler Nick Alexander, alongside course winner Craiganboy. Strong Economy was a scorer over track and trip when last seen in January and can't be ignored off a 7lb higher mark, while She'sasupermack is another whose form from last season puts her in the mix in a competitive heat.

MILVALE took a decent step forward when getting off the mark on his handicap debut at Kelso in February and the move up to 3m promises to bring about further progression from Sandy Thomson's gelding. Chocolat Noir landed the hat-trick at Sedgefield last month and has to enter calculations despite a 9lb rise, while Highland Hunter is capable of being in the mix having won a Pertemps Qualifier at Musselburgh when last seen in February.
