A three-year-old won this last year so Indego Blues, who scored over the C&D in September, is on the short-list, especially as stablemate Llewellyn is having his first start for the yard. Only Ten Per Cent normally only races at Southwell where he's won four times this year while Bunce won a Windsor seller in June and has joined David O'Meara, who will get the best out of him. SOVEREIGN STREET has been brilliantly placed by Ann Duffield. She scored on soft ground at Hamiliton then defied a 5lb rise at Ayr and another at Newcastle on Monday. She has a 6lb penalty to carry here but Dale Swift's claim will help and she can complete a four-timer while ground conditions are in her favour. Secret City was in very good form at this time a year ago and scored on soft ground at Thirsk in May from just 3lb lower so he's one to keep an eye on in the betting.
