Verdict

Tidal Dance may be capable of reversing Warwick running with Kris Spin on slightly better terms but the pair are climbing the weights. Awaywiththegreys and Ugly Bug are closely matched on course and distance running in December but Tullyesker Hill is improving judged on his win at Warwick and Viva Steve was second when put back over hurdles at Doncaster earlier this month. ONE IN A MILAN ran a fine race in the Welsh National here last time, finishing fourth. It's no surprise that Evan Williams has put him back over hurdles as he can race off a 15lb lower mark and he gets the nod as the handicapper appears reluctant to loosen his grip on Buddy Bolero or Cyrien Star.
