This is a modest handicap but we've lost faith in the well-treated Another Trump while Pete, who fell over fences at Cartmel last time, is another enigma. Tribal Dance's early promise has evaporated while Torran Sound was still beaten 10 lengths when third at Fontwell and has a poor strike rate. WHAT A GOOD NIGHT is no more than a token selection but should have benefited from another summer and has hinted at ability. He'll be ready for this and is just preferred to bumper winner Mist The Boat and veteran King Mak.
