Brousse En Feux won in a lower grade on her reappearance at Fontwell but is only 3lb higher here. Tregaro, on the other hand, is 8lb higher than when scoring for the second time at Sedgefield and will struggle to confirm last month's running with Gougane on 10lb worse terms. Moscow Chancer would have claims if fully wound-up but Gee Dee Nen doesn't win as often as he should and Carleton Place is back in the handicapper's grip judged on his latest run at Bangor. It's a while since ANOTHER TRUMP was at the top of his game but he ran a better race off a higher mark over hurdles last time and McCoy has been on board for all of his three victories to date. If his jumping holds up, he could surprise at decent odds.
