The feature race from Sandown Park, with 10 runners going to post for competitive fillies & mares G3 Contest over mile

The John & Thady Gosden trained 3-Y-0 Kingman filly COPPICE looks interesting in this G3 contest ,was good winner of the Sandringham Stakes at Royal Ascot in June ,coming home strongly to win comfortbly in that 29 runner handicap .Far from disgraced in group one Falmouth Stakes  at Newmarket last time,when finishing 5th of eight from wide trip behind stablemate Nashwa,Will be suited by this drop in class .Odds around 9-2 look solid each-way value , especially with SKYBET who are paying 4 places in this 10 runner contest .

 Last years winner Potapova looks the main danger , ran well on both her starts here at Sandown ,also finished fair fifth of 10 in G2 Duke Of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot last time , though the Sir Michael Stoute stable has been very quiet recently with only 1 winner from 25 runners in August .

Of the others the Richard Hannon trained Heredia was impressive winner of the Dick Hern listed stakes at Haydock last time,though ran poorly here at Sandown last season when odds on favourite,also was soundly beaten twice in G3 company last season .



0.50PTS EACH-WAY @ 9-2 SKYBET (1/5 ODDS 1-2-3-4)
