Royal Alcor won for the first time on Turf at Yarmouth nine days ago. He's 7lb higher but still well treated on his all-weather form. KATIE GALE could be called the winner a long way from home when returning from a break at Southwell. She's 6lb higher here but looks to have improved for the switch to Mike Appleby and can win again. Haydock winner Nolecce is back in form and can't be ignored while Chapter Five should have improved for his run at Doncaster and is preferred to Lineman, who has already been beaten three times over course and distance this year.
