TAHCHEE was only beaten a length when fourth over track and trip in June. He can be forgiven a below-par effort on the Fibresand last time and is just preferred to Mimi Luke. The latter has slipped down the weights and made the frame at Lingfield last month when finishing a couple of lengths ahead of Lead A Merry Dance. Baars Causeway and Honey Meadow take a drop in class and may finish closer as a consequence while Ecliptic Sunrise may do better now handicapping.
