This won't take much winning and Midnight Charmer would have every chance if reproducing his second at Fontwell in March, though was well beaten off today's mark at Towcester subsequently. CEBONNE has to concede weight to his four rivals but has won off this mark in the past and would have got a lot closer to Current Event over a longer trip at Fontwell last time had his jumping not let him down. Sophie Leech's charge gets the nod with Russellstown Boy probably best of the rest.
