The obvious answer is Plaid Cymru or the SNP, there is no left wing equivalent to the DUP

If Corbyn is sufficiently pragmatic he oughtn't to rule out the option of forming a coalition with the SNP. Nicola Sturgeon has already declared herself open to that possibility, and I'm fairly certain SNP voters would be more likely to trust Corbyn than a neo-Blairite. When you look at how big Labour's power base was in Scotland 25 years ago compared to the almost total annihilation they've faced this time around, there would definitely be a possibility of forming a joint government if the two parties were amenable to amalgamating their votes.
