Bintalwaadi is proven on the ground and enters calculations on her second to the potentially smart Decorative, but she had little excuse at Lingfield and is taken on this time along with Tesslam, an admirably consistent type who may just be in the handicapper's grip at present, and his previous conqueror Hot Spark who has since disappointed. The one we like at a potentially decent price is BULLWHIP, whose latest effort at Haydock is best ignored as he lost his race at the start. Prior to that he'd finished last in a race that couldn't have worked out better and this soft ground maiden winner has slipped to what appears a generous mark of 90. There are reasons to expect that Take Ten will act on the ground and he's nicely treated still after a fine fourth at the July meeting here therefore rates a threat with Tartan Trip who steps up in grade for this return to turf. Chica Whopa acted on soft ground in Ireland and needs considering as does Ghost who could go on now he's got his head in front.
