Mac Aeda wasn't beaten far when fourth in handicap company over 2m4f at Doncaster last time and makes more appeal than Newcastle third Foxes Delight, even though the latter is less exposed. Be My Deputy finished third at Market Rasen on his debut in November and is open to improvement but so is STREAMTOWN, who caught the eye with her staying-on fourth behind Aneyeforaneye over 2m4f at Musselburgh last month. A winner between the flags last summer she should relish the extra here and gets the vote receiving 14lb from Eighteen Carat, though the form of the latter's Aintree win has worked out quite well.
