Tidal's Baby arrives in fine form but has yet to race over the minimum trip. Alpha Delta Whisky and Belle Bayardo look to be treading water off their current marks while Stonecrabstomorrow and Lager Time have been running well without being quite good enough. Baby Queen and Mandy Lexi are getting no closer despite sliding down the weights and a token vote goes to JARROW, who has also tumbled down the handicap and is partnered by a 7lb apprentice today.
