In depth

Verdict

Bang Tidy opened his account over C&D last time with Sir Bruno a length behind and this doesn't look much tougher despite a 4lb rise. Spark Of Genius landed a lowly maiden here on her latest start and is open to further progress but Lucky Mark failed to follow-up a win at Lingfield when only sixth at the same track last time. Tidal's Baby has only won a maiden so far and preference goes to PICCOLO EXPRESS as he's scored three times over C&D and is now back on a winning mark.
