Strike A Light bids for a hat-trick but has been winning on faster ground over 7f. HOUSE CAPTAIN ran out of steam in the closing stages over 7f in soft going at Newbury last time. This shorter trip should suit and the Hannon colt gets the nod with Cam Hardie's allowance further helping his cause. Ray of Joy should handle today's surface but is a rare winner nowadays while the inconsistent Dazza won her maiden in testing ground. Billy Red and Welease Bwian do most of their winning on the Polytrack here or at Brighton with the former preferred in soft going.
