Verdict

Although so far he has done little to justify his massive price tag PAPA TANGO CHARLY has done enough to suggest he can win races and although his future almost certainly lies over fences, his 7L second to an exciting prospect last time out marks him out as the one to side with today. Thrice-placed Trincomalee looks sure to be involved again although the greatest threat to the selection may come from Glynn who represents the all-conquering Nicky Henderson yard which is in flying form.
  1. Papa Tango Charly
