DEFINIGHTLY can register a double at the meeting for Roger Charlton. He went very close to beating Marchand D'Or in soft ground at Deauville a fortnight ago and his victory in a Group 3 in France last year was even better form. Bewitched won last year's renewal but hasn't been at his best in a couple of Group 1 sprints since scoring on his reappearance, while Rose Bonheur was also below par at Tipperary last time but beat Rock Jock when scoring at Fairyhouse in July. The latter's stablemate, Arctic, is inconsistent but along with Empowering was beaten a long way here last month.
