Nisaal has run to a consistent level on turf and is well drawn as he attempts to translate that form to the all-weather whilst proven course performer Aurora Sky is also well berthed but she hasn't always put back-to-back races together. Veroon, Penchesco, Green Wadi and Silent Oasis are amongst those with each-way claims but it may prove worth taking a chance in an open race with ROILOS, particularly if the market gives out the right signals. Marco Botti landed a gamble with an ex-Italian runner at this course earlier in the month and it would be no surprise to see this import improve on his run at Wolverhampton.
