In depth

Verdict

Charming has recorded all her wins to date over 5f including Thursday's victory at this track. She beat Secret Millionaire who runs in the previous race with Putin not far behind but another chance goes to SPEAK THE TRUTH. A return to form was expected when sent off favourite over track and trip last week and Roger Ingram's charge was beaten less than a length in third with Waabel, My Own Way Home and Dancing Freddy all well behind. He gets the vote in this ahead of Tidal's Baby and Above The Stars who both look weighted to figure.
