TIDAL RUN had shown steady improvement with a couple of wins this year before running as though something was amiss on her latest start. She's taken to bounce back here though repeat of Danehill Dante's third over a mile here last season would give him a chance. The ground will be fast enough for recent Warwick winner Cuckoo Rock, who was well beaten despite finishing second in one of these events over C&D before that, but Black Coffee and Entrance were both placed on their latest starts and could figure along with Mustajed who has won twice here under today's amateur.
