Verdict

STREETS OF PROMISE (NAP) has already won a point-to-point and a bumper and will have improved significantly for her first run over hurdles at Wetherby, her first start for six months. She has far more scope than the likes of Asuncion and Solstice Dawn while Spring Over's latest efforts haven't offered much encouragement. Megamike was quietly fancied at Sedgefield earlier this month but never threatened and she'll need more if she's to open her account under Rules.
