That said, Nendrum is a clear threat based on his easy win over C&D a few weeks ago and that was his second victory over this track and trip since the turn of the year. Others to consider are Character Onesie and Urban Kode.

BEDROCK has been a bit disappointing in his last couple of starts but he was third in a Grade 1 at Aintree last season and he should be more than good enough to win this contest. The five-year-old is making his debut for Iain Jardine and he is having his first start since having a wind operation. The Steward was well above-average on the Flat a few years ago and he displayed plenty of promise on his hurdles debut back in November, while Ballycrystal Court and The Road Home also make the shortlist.

If it wasn't for being brought down at Catterick, MIDDLEBROW may well have completed a hat-trick heading into this contest, but the track winner can make it three from four dropping back to 2m1f. Celtic Flames was running a big race when falling at the last here last time and can go well with a clear round, while An Laoch is not without a chance.

However, preference is for track and trip winner JOHN WILLIAMS, who can get back on track having faltered on his hat-trick bid last time.

BUCKLED has won two of his last three and Sandy Thomson's eight-year-old can follow up his 12-length rout over course and distance here. He thrived round the tight turns of the Edinburgh venue and can hold off the stable's other runner, the quirky Arthurs Secret. The consistent Blunder Buss is considered for Chris Grant and Brian Hughes, while Uptown Funk is another course winner for the shortlist.
