Vera Drake can end a frustrating run of second places with victory in the Steve "Yarby" Yarborough Memorial Handicap at Hamilton.

Richard Fahey's charge has not finished out of the first four in seven starts to date, but she has not actually managed to get her head in front yet.

However, that can all change in this one-mile-five-furlong event as she can make the most of both a longer trip and her healthy weight allowance as a three-year-old.

Beaten just a head over 12 furlongs at Doncaster at the start of the month, it looks to be a matter of time before Vera Drake gains her first success.

Where's Jeff can bring up his hat-trick in the Welcome To Racing UK Club Members Handicap.

He probably did not beat too much when winning at Newcastle at the end of June or when scoring at this track on his most recent outing, but he particularly impressed on the latter occasion.

Where's Jeff got a bit worked up in the stalls that day but still ran out a comfortable length-and-a-quarter winner, looking as though another rise would be no trouble.

He races off an 8lb higher perch here, but Where's Jeff can rise to the challenge.

Georgian Manor goes on a retrieval mission for Sir Michael Stoute in the Sky Vegas Anything Could Happen Handicap at Doncaster.

Winner of a Beverley maiden on his penultimate start, he was sent off favourite on his handicap debut at Newmarket last month but never looked like taking a hand in the finish, beating just one of his 10 rivals home.

While he race a bit freely there, that run looked too bad to be true and those that keep the faith could be rewarded.

Paramount Love can bounce back to winning form in Epsom's Self-Charging Hybrid Handicap.

She had to settle for third last time after she could not quite grab the early lead, so expect positive tactics again.

Arctic Spirit has improved a little with each of her three runs to date and can come of age in the Juliana Abell Nursery at Leicester.

Ed Dunlop's charge is having her first start in handicap company in this event, but a mark of 67 looks perfectly reasonable at this stage.

Switching up to seven furlongs from six for this race also appears a positive factor.
