Charitable Act found only Miss Dashwood, who runs earlier on the card, too good here last time and can figure again. Brimstone Hill couldn't follow up his C&D win when beaten three lengths back at this track last time, though he has the beating of Rock Song, while Lean On Pete will find this tougher having also scored over C&D last month. Kuwait Star has scope for improvement but so does Haydock maiden winner TAWAASUL. The latter hasn't raced since June but should have progressed since then and can go in again on her handicap debut.
