310-3OR: 59D
11/8

Proved a different proposition since being switched to handicaps (in blinkers) winning twice in quick succession at Ffos Las; both times over 5f. Double penalty gives her a little more to do this time, blinkers have to work a third time.

129-7OR: 58D
6/1

Sprinting veteran who holds his form well for one of his age but hasn't won for over two years (now 10lb below his last winning mark). Not beaten far in his last two starts but probably expecting a bit much to see him return to winning form.

7/1

C&D winner just over a year ago off a 4lb higher mark when first-time cheekpieces appeared to have a very positive effect. Gelded prior to his last two starts he attracted support over C&D last time (finished fifth); more needed to get involved.

Improved on his second run for this yard (strong in the market) when taking a low-grade 5f AW handicap late last year. Followed that up with two further competent runs, both on the AW at 5/6f (started favourite both times); returns from an absence.

14/1

Gone to the right yard if she does possess any sprinting prowess having shown very little for Henry Spiller at up to 7f apart from one standout effort. Offered little on her stable debut over 5f (AW) beating just one home; visor on first-time.

16/1

One of two runners from a yard with a rich sprinting history she's fared little better for the switch to handicaps after a break. Fared poorly over C&D last time, first-time cheekpieces are now reached for in the hope of an improved performance.

58-8OR: 45
11/1

Poor maiden (0-17) who offered a little more than usual when third over C&D on her penultimate start in a race that contained three of today's rivals. Too free over an extended 5f last time at Bath she only makes very limited appeal.

48-8OR: 45
50/1

16 starts so far have done little more than confirm that her form is poor and it will be a weak race in which she's able to break her maiden. Beaten some 47L on her most recent start finishing last at Lingfield over 7f; hard to see her winning this.

Betting

Forecast

Perfect Charm (11/8), Broughton Excels (10/3), Bronze Beau (6/1), Haveoneyerself (7/1), Tina Teaspoon (11/1), Mysusy (14/1), Swell Song (16/1), Raise A Little Joy (50/1)

Verdict

The tests that PERFECT CHARM keeps getting set are getting tougher and tougher with this examination very different to the one she has faced on her last two victories over 5f at Ffos Las where blinkers appear to have helped her greatly. She carries a 12lb penalty this time and rather surprisingly 3yo’s with that penalty have gone 10-21 since 1997. This looks a weak contest and she’s taken to follow up with the veteran Bronze Beau and the unexposed at sprint trips Broughton Excels taken to fill the places.
