SINCERITY (NAP) looked to have a bit in hand when making a winning start in handicaps over course and distance last month. She’s gone up 4lb but clearly enjoys some give in the ground and will have conditions in her favour again. Mina Vagante was raised 4lb after a couple of seconds at Redcar in July and was beaten six lengths last time at Newmarket but Tabassor is better than she showed at Doncaster last month when the ground was very testing. Capriolette won at Nottingham two runs ago while the Irish-trained Sarah Jessica hails from a yard who don't waste journeys.
