Verdict

With Discretion was out of her depth in a Grade 1 at Punchestown in May having won her first two starts over hurdles. She now switches her attention and a mares’ allowance on her side in this, though doesn’t look the easiest of rides. TIDAL FLOW was only third when making his chasing bow at Ffos Las in October but has always looked a chasing type and the ground will suit. Khage has been a bit disappointing in his two runs to date over the larger obstacles while this looks a big ask for former pointer Jigcleaningus.
