Verdict

Ashbrittle was a stayer on the Flat but hasn't shown a great deal so far this year. Henok has to go on the short-list as he was beaten less than two lengths when third at Warwick last month, while Big Easy stepped up on his debut effort when fifth at Exeter last time. Alesandro Mantegna has won twice over fences but his recent efforts don't inspire confidence so we'll take a chance on the once-raced CHARM SCHOOL. A very useful handicapper on the Flat for John Gosden, the six-year-old was having his first run for almost two years when unplaced in a Grade 2 at Chepstow last month. Considering he was too keen, that wasn't a bad performance and he'll be a lot straighter now.
