Jack The Laird has been running with credit in handicaps since his AW win in May and it wasn't his fault he couldn't offer a big response to a progressive one at Yarmouth last time. He looks sure to run well again but NOBLE ACT has shown enough in maidens to think she can win off her opening mark now handicapping for the first time. Very First Blade looks the best proposition of the remainder.[Emily Weber]

Shown up well in 6f and 5f maidens and was caught wide when a close third over C&D latest; looks likely type for an ordinary handicap and should be open to some improvement.

String of seconds since AW win in May is rather off-putting but he has been running well in defeat and no disgrace to chase home a progressive filly at Yarmouth latest (5f, good to firm); nothing of that calibre here and obvious chance.

Never reached a challenging position at Chepstow latest but in good form his two previous turf runs and only just above his winning mark at Hamilton in June (5f, good to firm); shouldn't be far away.

C&D winner on soft in June but hasn't beaten a rival in two starts since, here (soft) and at Pontefract; hard to enthuse over after those heavy defeats; cheekpieces refitted.

Ran well in defeat her final 2yo start but not yet found her feet for new trainer at 5f-6f; coming down weights but early days to be fancying her; cheekpieces on.

Only lightly raced and wasn't entirely disgraced her second run back from a break at Chepstow latest (5f, good to firm); might improve a little but still no easy task.
