Verdict

Rosslyn Castle finished a long away ahead of Allowed at Cartmel in May but had every chance at Newton Abbot next time and didn't find a lot when push came to shove. Broughtons Bandit was second to a decent sort at Huntingdon and is improving but COLLINGWOOD, four times a winner on the Flat in France, will have benefited from his hurdling debut at Aintree and is expected to close in this from a yard in terrific form. Imperial Stargazer was only beaten six lengths over course and distance last month and is also worthy of consideration but bumper winner Claiming Benefits may need this.
