CASHPOINT mounted a successful raid on Deauville a month ago and is rated 7lb higher than stablemate Conry. Serena Brotherton is as good as the professionals and can steer Ian Williams' nine-year-old to a third win of the season. Dandy Nicholls does well in this type of race and Rasselas won a handicap over a mile here earlier this summer. He's preferred to Licence To Till and Call Of Duty but this is Well Painted's level nowadays, though he changed hands after winning a seller at Lingfield last month.
