TIDY AFFAIR scored easily here before completing a double at Kempton. This is tougher from 6lb higher but he's probably got another race in him and a hat-trick beckons. Easydoesit landed a very poor handicap here in January and has an extra 6lb while Wom ran a shocker at Kempton after scoring at Lingfield. Day of Destiny has gone well on his last couple of starts at this level but the winning hurdler and chaser Green To Gold, though having the form to take this, is better over further. Evergreen Forest ran poorly at Kempton latest having won there earlier.
