Verdict

Plenty of winning C&D form on offer with Our Charlie Brown preferred to fellow Musselburgh scorer The Stalking Moon . However, a chance is taken on the now gelded TROOPER'S GOLD . He did well as a juvenile last back-end, winning a 7f Tapeta maiden at Newcastle, and the suspicion is that he could represent some value in this contest after a quiet start to 2017 in which a number of factors conspired against runners from this stable. His attitude for the battle looked more than resolute as a juvenile, and his reduced mark of 75 can be exploited.
