Common Wainscot (Mythimna pallens)

Came to light left on overnight. Definitely one of the Noctudiae. The stripes make it probably a Wainscot. But Common (M. pallens) or Smoky (M. impura)? I've gone for Common because of the comment in Townsend and Waring that the forewing of this species is "infrequently heavily streaked brown".
