Crimplene, who misses the Sussex Stakes, will face a maximum of eight rivals in the Nassau Stakes over a mile and a quarter at Goodwood on Saturday. Social Harmony was left with top weight of 9st 10lb in the Stewards' Cup Handicap after the weights were raised 1lb at yesterday's confirmation stage. Dermot Weld's six-year-old headed 58 acceptors.

All the market leaders stood their ground for the six-furlong event and trainer David Nicholls has left 12 horses in the race. Tayseer, Cryhavoc and Royal Result are his shortest-priced entries.

Those who fail to make the final field of 30 at Thursday's declaration stage are eligible for the Stewards' Sprint Handicap on Friday.
