Verdict

Alfie's Sun has failed to complete on two of his three starts since 2007 but he won the other and it will be interesting to see what the market makes of his chance but preference is for the completely unexposed ESTATES RECOVERY. His attention is switched to chasing after just five starts under Rules and it would be no surprise to see this Irish point winner follow-up his impressive success at Exeter despite having to cope with a significantly higher mark. Courella and King Roonah have their stamina to prove unlike Tritonville Lodge and Cebonne who both come into this race on the back of decent efforts. Of the remainder, it's well worth keeping a close eye on Marleybow who has failed to live up to expectations thus far but has joined a shrewd trainer who could well get his career back on track.
