TIDAL'S BABY swooped late to beat the front-running Swendab by a short-head in an apprentices' race at Windsor on Monday. It could be a similar story here as Tony Carroll's charge avoids a penalty. John Coffey posted a better effort in lesser company at Thirsk last time and We Have A Dream went close in a Windsor seller last week. But Generalyse is preferred on his close-up third at Goodwood on his penultimate start and he could prove the main danger ahead of Firmdecisions.
