Tides Reach started odds-on at Salisbury last time having finished runner-up on her debut. But she could only manage third and steps up a furlong for this. CADMIUM is just preferred as she showed a big improvement to finish fifth over track and trip on her latest start and further progress is expected in this. Not much separated Zugzwang and Coiste BoDhar at Newbury though neither threatened the winner while Divine Bay looks a likely improver.
