Milano Supremo was second in a handicap at Kelso last month but he's never raced over the minimum trip over hurdles. Saga De Tercey has barely raised a gallop over the last year and is worth opposing, despite the drop in grade, so the vote goes to AJMAN. He's also been a bit disappointing lately but a repeat of his second at Ludlow in January would probably suffice here. Topo Gigio is still a maiden but has claims at this level and is preferred to That'll Do Nicely and Venture To War of the others.
