    Verdict

    TIDAL WATCH impressed with the style of his success over course and distance last time and is taken to follow up for the O'Neill team off a 3lb higher mark. He travelled notably well that day before quickening away to oblige under hands and heels riding and looks a useful hurdler for the future under the forecast conditions. Blushing Red is also a course and distance winner and should prove competitive again with trip and ground to suit. Fairway Freddy completes the trio of course and distance winners and he, too,has his conditions and is not ruled out despite top weight.
