Verdict

TIDE OF TIME strikes as the most solid option. He's a 4-time course winner who arrives arguably in the form of his life, so it's not hard to envisage another prominent showing. Handicap-debutant Swift Flight looks to have been allotted a fair opening mark and can go well again, with Tipperary-scorer Pretty Boy Floyd also respected up 6 lb.
