0-10 but in the frame in seven of her last eight starts, as when fourth of 14 behind a subsequent winner on stable debut after 169 days off at Southwell (1m, AW) last month; handles soft ground well and could play a part with the run under her belt, despite her wide draw.

Well beaten in one previous AW start over this C&D, though that was on his debut; 3lb lower than when winning at Thirsk (1m, good) last May and although off for seven months, he has run well fresh in the past; Streak Lightning looks the stable's main hope, but still worth a market check.
