HIT THE LIGHTS scored over course and distance last time when beating Top Cop and several others. The latter has gone close again since to boost the form so Patrick Chamings' charge gets the vote. Smart Dj, Very First Blade, Diamond Vine and Triple Dream were all behind the selection and will do well to turn the tables here so Lizzy's Dream may prove a bigger threat on his recent second at Musselburgh.
