9/2

4lb higher than when winning at Windsor in June (1m2f, good to firm), but has continued to run well since and this 1m1f trip suits perfectly (past C&D winner); cheekpieces applied for the first-time.

Shown no worthwhile form (including over hurdles) since his return to action from a lengthy absence; handicap mark in free-fall, but with good reason.

8/1

Becky Smith is back on board for the first-time since the pair landed a rapid-fire hat-trick of wins (1m-1m1f) during August; 8lb above his last winning mark, and well beaten after a tardy start at York (1m2f) recently.

2/1

All out winner of a 1m Goodwood fillies handicap (good to soft) in May, and has been set some much tougher tasks (mainly at Ascot) since; better latest when beaten just a neck on the AW at Chelmsford (1m2f); raised another 2lb.

10/1

5lb higher than when winning for this rider at Salisbury in July (1m, good to firm); best suited by a strong early pace (hold up horse); never able to get involved after a slow start latest.

3/1

14-race maiden who has recorded a number of near misses; has shown his strongest form at 1m2f, so might find this trip on the sharp side; handled by the prolific Serena Brotherton.

Forecast

Bubble And Squeak (2/1), Know Your Limit (3/1), Rotherwick (9/2), Brother McGonagall (6/1), Oswald (7/1), Red Charmer (8/1), Biotic (10/1), Tenor (40/1)

Verdict

Not an overly taxing contest, so the rather obvious one is the Simon Walker-ridden 3yo filly BUBBLE AND SQUEAK. She has contested some competitive races at Ascot (Class 3) since winning at Goodwood in May, and she bounced back to her best when going down narrowly on the AW at Chelmsford latest. Raised another 2lb, the handicapper is gradually making her life tougher, but she looks more than capable of seeing off these rivals. A potential danger is the top-weight Rotherwick who tends to excel over this 1m1f trip, and has the perceived benefit of newly applied cheekpieces.
