LIGHT THE CITY won over a longer trip here last month but went close over today's distance at Beverley last week. Ruth Carr's charge can return to winning ways back on this surface. Bring Sweets' poor strike rate doesn't boost confidence but he has a C&D win to his credit, while Newby Lodge has her first start on Fibresand after scoring at Brighton on Tuesday. Miereveld won here last year and has improved over hurdles since but the inconsistent Sennockian Storm is another recent Brighton winner making her debut at this track.
