OSCARS DEN was pulled out of an alternative engagement at Lingfield yesterday and should take all the beating here. He won very easily over 2m at Uttoxeter last month and has already been placed over 3m in a point-to-point. Bangor bumper winner Sealous Scout should improve on a remote fifth at Wetherby but Just Cameron was an early faller on his reappearance and may need another outing to blow away the cobwebs. Mrs Grass has been placed in a couple of low-grade handicaps at Hexham and Sedgefield but is unlikely to be good enough here.
