Fairly useful gelding. 13/8 and cheekpieces on for 1st time, career best when winning 8-runner minor event at Beverley (5f, good) 27 days ago, staying on strongly. The one to beat.
Improved on debut form to get off the mark in 10-runner novice event at Catterick (5f, heavy, 11/2) 13 days ago. Up in trip.
9/2, last of 9 in novice event at Kempton (6f) on debut 10 days ago. Needs to leave that well behind to figure.
Thrice-raced maiden. 9/1, run best excused when last of 12 in novice event at this course (7.2f) 7 days ago, saddle slipping before halfway.
Once-raced maiden. 25/1, seventh of 12 in minor event at Redcar (5f, good to firm) on debut 34 days ago, late headway. Up in trip.
Well held in maiden/novice events.
Well held in novice event/maiden.
Foaled March 30. £5,500 yearling, Due Diligence filly. Half-sister to 3 winners, including winner up to 1m Composed and winner up to 9.3f Bountiful Girl. Market for clues.
Charlie Fellowes (4/9), Country Charm (7/2), Tamigi (11/2), Desert Mist (20/1), Pleinmont (22/1), Banoffee (50/1), Sabratha (66/1), Flora's Aura (150/1)
CHARLIE FELLOWES clocked a good time when opening his account in first-time cheekpieces at Beverley last month, so looks capable of following up under a penalty. Country Charm is the obvious threat on the back of her Catterick win, with Due Diligence filly Tamigi worth a glance in the betting on debut.
