CARLTON SCROOP is a bit of a course specialist and after a only just being held from this rating last time at Wolverhampton looks to be the call now returning to the track where he as won four times from nine starts. Dubburg must have every chance having beaten Carlton Scroop at Wolverhampton on that last run but the Kempton track should bring about a reverse. Rebellious Spirit might be one of the leading protagonists based on his course record but he was well beaten off last time and has never won over this far. Adoyen Spice has a chance off bottom weight after he was a run away winner two starts ago and performed well last time but Carlton Scroop is always hard to beat here and should notch up another.
