HARANGUE was completely unfancied at Worcester last week but was always going well and won in a canter with Tom O'Brien looking around for non-existent dangers after the last. McCoy takes over the reins here and Paul Gilligan's charge should have few problems defying a 7lb penalty if in the same mood. Brother Scott has struggled off higher marks since winning at Sedgefield in May but has place claims again in this and Keep The Cash probably has more scope than most. Burns Night was only beaten half-a-length at Stratford in June but is 6lb higher now.
