Verdict

John Jenkins will be hoping that A P McCoy can inspire Tiradia to a first career victory in 17 attempts. He was beaten less than a length in a novice event at Kempton after a break and must have every chance, though there was some promise in Sun Quest's latest fourth at Towcester and the 10-year-old his well treated on past form. Karl Marx won a seller at Exeter last month but then finished tailed off at Wincanton. CRUISE IN STYLE goes well fresh so her absence since December is not a concern. She was fourth over track and trip in November and is 7lb lower now so gets the vote.
