Aldo has gone close in handicap company here before but will do well giving so much weight to the less exposed sorts including Never Satisfied. The latter will have come on for January's reappearance at Lingfield, but MUNIFICENCE is preferred. He found the promising newcomer Red Orator too good when attempting to make all in a three-runner race at Kempton last month, but should get a bit more cover here and Nicky Mackay, who has been in flying form at this track in 2012, takes over the reins. Ctappers represents last year's winning yard and looks best of the remainder.
