Latest win at Windsor in August. 4/1, good second of 9 in handicap at Salisbury (9.9f, good to soft) 34 days ago. Enters calculations.
13/2 and tongue strap on for 1st time, creditable third of 15 in handicap at Goodwood (9f, soft) 14 days ago. Has to be taken seriously.
Winner at Windsor in July. Fourth of 9 in minor event (3/1) at Kempton (12f) 56 days ago. More needed on this handicap debut but he's hardly exposed.
Twelve runs since last win in 2018. Respectable fourth of 11 in handicap at Ripon (9.8f, good, 5/1). Off 109 days and this 11-y-o will probably find one or two too good.
Four wins from 8 runs this year, the latest at Newmarket in August. 3/1, good fourth of 10 in handicap at Chester (10.3f, good) 10 days ago. Perhaps the handicapper just about has her measure now.
Winner at Sandown in August. 6/1, last of 7 in handicap at Haydock (11.8f, good) 11 days ago. Others preferred.
Lightly-raced winner. Fifth of 7 in handicap at Haydock (8f, good, 7/2). Off 121 days and up in trip. Needs to raise his game.
Four-time C&D winner. Latest win at Haydock in July. Eighth of 11 in handicap (20/1) at York (11.8f, good) 31 days ago. Dangerous to discount back at this venue.
Lightly-raced maiden. 13/8, respectable sixth of 15 in handicap at Windsor (10f, good) 30 days ago, needing stiffer test. Conditions won't be a problem and he needs considering.
Sandyman (4/1), Casting Vote (4/1), Alpine Mistral (11/2), Casa Loupi (11/2), Deinonychus (13/2), The Met (13/2), Awake My Soul (12/1), Tindrum (14/1), Strawman (28/1)
Despite failing to vindicate punters' confidence at Windsor last month, CASA LOUPI is evidently thought capable of better and is well worth another chance given the promise of his Sandown reappearance. The Met is feared on the back of a creditable effort behind the in-form Snow Ocean at Goodwood, while Sandyman also has claims and it would be unwise to rule out Deinonychus, who is 4-10 here.
