Verdict

It could prove best to stick with top weight CAPTAIN TIDDS. He finally returned to winning ways at Lingfield last month and, despite a 9lb higher mark, Richard Phillips' charge can go in again as he has little to fear form today's modest opposition. Course regular Ballyman was placed over these fences once again a fortnight ago but the handicapper refuses to relent while Tchang Goon was still beaten nine lengths when runner-up last time and Wishes Or Watches remains badly out of sorts.
