Verdict

CHARLI PARCS was well clear of Master Blueyes when they met on their penultimate start and the former looked like mastering his rival again at Kempton last time before falling. He should appreciate the faster ground and yard have had a good week so far as well as having a good record in this race, so there's plenty to like about his chances. Defi Du Seuil comes here aiming to defend his unbeaten record but he may have wanted slower ground. Ex Patriot could go well at a bigger price and he looked unlucky to lose a race in the stewards room last time out.
