Verdict

None of these inspire confidence and WRENINGHAM is no more than a speculative selection. He at least arrives in good form having gone close at Kempton last time and the talented apprentice Charlie Bishop takes 3lb off his back. Sandwith has shown a bit more recently but still looks on a high enough mark, while Madam Isshe can turn in the odd decent run when she's in the mood. Bathwick Xaara's win at Goodwood in August looks like a fluke as she's been in dire form since and Canadian Danehill and Lujiana will have to dig deep to rediscover past glories.
