Alpine Storm and Ryeolliean have both struggled so far this year. Lilly Junior is preferred as she's getting closer and made the frame on her handicap debut at Yarmouth earlier in the month. But INCUR FOUR FAULTS looks the safest bet as he scored over track and trip last month and went in again at Hamilton last week by a cosy three lengths. Keith Dalgleish's charge can defy a penalty and gets the vote.
