"...an opening mark of 144 could prove lenient..."

Timeform on Tidal Flow

Tidal Flow - 15:35 Newbury

Tidal Flow has the potential to make a classy chaser and is a confident choice to make a winning transition to handicaps following such an impressive success in a novice at Uttoxeter last time. The form of his chasing debut is proving strong and an opening mark of 144 could prove lenient. Kateson also looks the type to improve and Diable de Sivola can get involved if in the same form as last time.

Mister Coffey - 12:40 Newbury

Mister Coffey is sure to be popular having won a bumper in impressive fashion for Harry Whittington at Huntingdon in April. He has since changed hands for big money (£340,000) and is bred to improve now sent jumping, but this looks a good race of its type and he could be worth opposing. Smart Flat recruit On To Victory is a viable alternative.

Smart Stat
Mutalahef - 13:00 Lingfield

2 - Marcus Tregoning's number of winners in past 10 runnings

Marcus Tregoning has won this race twice before in recent years, including with Bronze Angel back in 2011, so Mutalahef has to be of interest here. He has a smart pedigree, too, out of a half-sister to the top-class sprinter Muhaarar, and he is another son of Kingman that needs keeping a close eye on, especially if strong in the betting.
