Red Tide had plenty of use made of him at Doncaster last time and faded away in the closing stages. Leaderene finished well behind on that occasion and the former may do better under a more restrained ride. LIBERTY RED never threatened on his debut at Sandown but he'll have benefited from the the experience and this extra half-furlong on a stiff track will bring his stamina into play. L'Artiste looks another likely improver and the newcomer Innocent Touch, a half-brother to winning stablemate Gabrial, is worth a second glance in the betting.
