LOOSE CABOOSE heads Davids Mark and Little Eden on a long short-list. Alan McCabe has done really well over the past twelve months but this filly has struggled over the same period which has seen her mark plummet since she won at Great Leighs just over a year ago. She went close to scoring last time though and her trainer has employed the services of the talented Amy Ryan who has a decent record for the yard. Davids Mark hasn't won on turf for a long time but he ran well from a bad draw at Folkestone for this apprentice and he could feature if turning up in similar form. Many Welcomes found some form late in the summer and should continue to progress and merits respect as does the unexposed Little Eden with David Barron's horses running well. He failed to get involved at this track last month over five but could be ready for this step up in trip and was closely considered but we came down in favour of Loose Caboose.
