Verdict

WONDERFUL CHARM has taken to fences like a duck to water and is fancied to complete his hat-trick. He was run close by Fox Appeal at Wincanton last time but the runner-up is decent and this course is likely to suit him better. Up To Something was just touched off by Ivor's King at Ascot after winning at Carlisle but will need more here. The Romford Pele will be winning soon, however, judged on placed efforts at Chepstow and Cheltenham while Tanerko Emery will be one to watch once the ground turns heavy. Harry Hunt was engaged to run in a novices' handicap here yesterday and that is more his level.
