Verdict

DIAMOND CHARLIE stormed to an easy victory at Kempton on last month's return to action. He's been raised 8lb for his trouble but has the beating of his main rivals on collateral form and can follow up. The selection beat Triple Dream at Kempton and the latter found Royal Bajan a neck too good before winning over track and trip a fortnight ago when beating Sandfrankskipsgo. Tyfos and My Son Max have a shout but Picansort looks the main threat as he's been back to something like best of late, though he steps up a grade for this.
