Act Your Shoe Size beat NO POPPY and Honeymead at Thirsk in June but was disappointing when beaten in a claimer at Hamilton last week and Tim Easterby's filly, only beaten a short-head at Ayr last time, comes out best of that trio today and looks a better bet than stablemate First Class Favour. She gets the nod though in-form three-year-old Miss Ellany will be a danger while Lady Chaparral is better than she showed at Ripon last time and beat Hot Rod Mamma over a shorter trip at Carlisle last month. Silvas Romana needs to get back to her best but has a chance if she does.
