Donald McCain is as shrewd as they come and he is relentless when it comes to banging in winners. He trained an incredible 155 winners over jumps last season, and his tally for this season is already at 71, operating at 23 per cent.
In the last five years, he has a 22 per cent return at Musselburgh Racecourse and he has four big chances at the Scottish track on Monday.
Collingham disappointed on his only start over this kind of trip at Perth in April but it was a much more competitive affair than this and he should get his own way out in front in this. Still looks well treated and arrives here in good form.
General Officer won an Irish point in February at the fourth time of asking. Third in a Carlisle bumper on rules debut, he absolutely bolted up over course and distance on hurdling bow and will be hard to beat again.
Masked Crusader looked smart when winning a pair of novice hurdles last year and although he disappointed on chasing bow at Catterick when sent off a warm order, the first time tongue tie might help and the yard have a 22 per cent strike rate at the track in the last five years.
Latino Fling is a keen going front runner who is a model of consistency. The mare got way too lit up at Sedgefield last time but if Hughes can settle her, she will be a hard horse to pass. When she gets her own way in front, she usually puts her rival to the sword from a long way out.
