Hermosa Vaquera was still beaten four lengths when runner-up at Leicester last week but finished ahead of Big Thunder. The latter may well reverse running with that pipe-opener under his belt but Dame De La Noche isn't getting any closer and is stepping up in trip for her handicap debut. STREAK made a winning start on the Polytrack in December and was having her first run since when fourth at Kempton last month. She'll be sharper for this and David Lanigan's filly can make a winning debut on Turf. The remainder have some catching up to do with the lightly-raced Ruff Luck perhaps proving best of them.
