Tongue strap on for 1st time, first run since leaving John & Thady Gosden when respectable sixth of 13 in handicap at Southwell (5f, 11/1) 39 days ago. Others make more appeal.

10/1
2/1, 4 lengths sixth of 8 to Rose Hip in handicap at Lingfield (5f, AW) 15 days ago, not knocked about. Better than the result last time, and he's too well handicapped to completely dismiss.

33/1
4-time C&D winner. Eighteen runs since last win in 2019. 28/1, eighth of 10 in handicap at Southwell (5f) 29 days ago, left poorly placed. Not easy to make a case for.

11/1
Respectable second of 5 in handicap (2/1) at Newcastle (5f) 13 days ago, not ideally placed. Likeable sort who should make his presence felt again.

Latest win at Lingfield in August. 16/1, creditable 1¼ lengths fourth of 8 to Rose Hip in handicap at Lingfield (5f, AW) 15 days ago. Others look better treated.

4/1
C&D winner. Three wins from 13 runs last year. Latest win here in August. Creditable ¾-length third of 8 to Rose Hip in handicap (9/2) at Lingfield 15 days ago. Likely to be thereabouts once more.

Forecasts

Copinet (10/3), Existent (7/2), Lucky Ava (4/1), Rose Hip (9/2), Lihou (10/1), Phoenix Star (11/1), Cooperation (12/1), Vandad (22/1), Tropics (33/1)

Verdict

ROSE HIP is still getting better at the age of 7 and, in getting up from an unpromising position at Lingfield, she made it 2 from 2 on polytrack, so she's worth chancing to maintain her unbeaten record on this surface. Phoenix Star arrives in form and should put up a typically bold showing, while Copinet is another danger if the race is run to suit her.
