ROYAL TROOPER was strongly backed ahead of a scheduled engagement last week and with Tony McCoy keeping the faith with the Jim Best inmate, we'll do the same. A five-time winner on the Flat, he takes a chance off a mark of 83 over hurdles having shown limited ability so far. Blazing Desert won a maiden for Alan King, and though unsuccessful for John Quinn, he's been busy on the level for new connections. Carhue Princess has been dropped in the weights but probably needs to come down further to be competitive. Eastwell Smiles ran too badly to be true at Uttoxeter and Sophie Leech's nine-year-old could well have bounced after producing an encouraging effort a few weeks earlier following a long-term absence. Mount Welcome failed to take advantage of a lower rating over hurdles at Uttoxeter and connections try their luck again.
