TIDES REACH showed her inexperience when slowly away at Ffos Las on her debut but made up plenty of ground to finish second. Roger Charlton's filly can go one better at the main expense of Arranger, who also looks sure to improve for her modest debut effort at Goodwood. Nakuti finished closer at this track last time but that was over 7f while Desert Ace makes most appeal of the newcomers.
