Whistling Senator is only 4lb higher than when scoring at Huntingdon in May but, like Am I Blue and Kahsabelle, has plenty to prove on ground this soft. Cerveza Dinero looks interesting, however, making a swift reappearance after finishing second at Uttoxeter on Sunday while Minella Ranger has been placed in novice events at Worcester and Hereford, though beaten a long way on both occasions. Victor Echo, Numbercrucher and Romance Dance are all returning from lengthy breaks while A NUN WITH A GUN has been off again since finishing a close second at Aintree in June. She does, however, like easy going so it could be worth taking a chance on her fitness here.
