ULCK DU LIN has been keeping much better company than this. He hasn't shown much appetite for a battle so far this season, but could be worth one more chance. Veteran Nozic has more to do than when winning over course and distance last month while Vision Des Champs hasn't shown much since joining Gary Moore. Alfraamsey was in action over hurdles here yesterday but could have a chance if turned out again quickly in this.
