Your Tepee Or Mine made a winning start at Ffos Las in June and the runner-up has franked the form since. But, taking into account Harry Derham's claim, he will have to concede 14lb here to Paul Nicholls' newcomer THE MOBB. Trevor Hemmings owns this son of Westerner, who has a solid NH pedigree, and he can make a successful debut. Florida Quays was second at Haydock in April and Wychwoods Brook filled the same position at Uttoxeter earlier but Ranthambore probably has just as much scope after a decent debut at Uttoxeter in September.
