Lough Coi won a maiden chase at Lingfield earlier this month and stays this longer trip. However, he's hardly consistent and has gone up in the weights. We prefer to take a chance on the less-exposed FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT who, though well beaten on his chasing bow at Taunton, gave the impression there would be more to come once he gained experience. Special Robon is also lightly raced and likely to do better in time but Truckers Benefit looks as though he's lost his confidence and the other trio make little appeal.
