CHARMING THOUGHT just failed to get his head in front on his debut at Nottingham but still finished seven lengths ahead of the third. He gets the vote ahead of Aussie Ruler, who was expected to do better dropped in class at Thirsk last time. Kinematic should also have finished closer at Sandown, but Rio Ronaldo posted a better effort at Leicester recently and Harbour Patrol ran better than his finishing position at Goodwood suggests. The newcomer Toot Your Flute is a half-brother to a Listed winner and worth noting.
