Aletoile would have a chance on early season form but has become disappointing. Dylan Hogan steered TRUE COURAGE into second place at Yarmouth last week and a repeat of that effort may well suffice in a race stuffed with modest types. Nibras Gold is probably the danger but will need to settle better than at Salisbury to last home.
