In depth

Verdict

This looks much too sharp for last month's Ffos Las winner Stow but Ulys Du Charmil has to go on the short-list having only found one too good on his reappearance at Doncaster, where he was sent off joint favourite. The four-year-old Tidal Way is still improving but BRICK RED had absolutely no luck in a better race at Cheltenham in November and appears to be coming back to his best. He could be the value here, though The Pier could be interesting dropping back in trip and Ffos Las second Street Dance is starting to look well treated. Red Riverman may be best of the rest.
