Storm Lightning was well supported for a ladies' race at Leicester on Thursday after landing a lower grade event than this at Brighton but could only finish fifth. Tango Sky can't afford to miss the break, as he did on his last visit to the track, while Angelito is drawn on the outside and hasn't won since 2012. Oldjoesaid could still be capable of winning in this grade but Trader Jack very rarely runs over a trip this short nowadays and is unlikely to have the pace. CHEWOREE has been overrated by the assessor since her victory at Windsor last April and she's now dropped to a mark off which she is capable of winning. A recent comeback will have put her straight and she's handed the vote.
