Verdict

Red Tyke should be approaching peak fitness now after a run over hurdles and a fifth at Doncaster, where he started a short-priced favourite. He won over course and distance last year but it was heavy ground on that occasion and this faster surface probably suits A SOUTHSIDE BOY better. He is two from two on the course and the way he kept finding more to hold off Schmooze here last month suggests he can confirm that running with Linda Perratt's charge on 3lb worse terms. This looks too far for Euston Square but Ebony Express is worth a try at the trip.
