Representingceltic, who enjoyed plenty of success in jumpers' bumpers over the winter, has been knocking on the door over fences and will be popular here racing off the same mark as when second at Kempton earlier this month. Refusal and Chestnut Ben are others threatening to get their head in front while Porters War only found one too good on his reappearance at Fontwell. But he was beaten fair and square by ANOTHER TRUMP here in the autumn and the top weight often pops up when least expected. McCoy's mount will love the good ground and it would be no surprise to see him record a third course victory ahead of the disappointing Wester Ross and last month's course and distance winner Orang Outan.
