Steely continued his frustrating run of seconds at Chepstow last month and Neighbourhood makes more appeal on his latest third at the same track. ENTITLEMENT can be forgiven a poor effort at Southwell as she clearly didn't take to the Fibresand but James Fanshawe's filly is only 2lb higher than when scoring over track and trip before that. She gets the nod ahead of another course and distance winner in Epsom Salts, who continues to tumble down the weights. Between The Lines finished runner-up here in July but has finished nearer last in a couple of subsequent outings.
