ASHBRITTLE enjoyed soft ground on the Flat and made a very encouraging debut over timber in heavy going at Ffos Las were he found only Jumps Road too strong in the closing stages. With that under his belt he can go one better and again take care of third-placed Charm School, who had the benefit of a previous run. Tindaro looks a major threat as he would have finished very much closer to Trip The Light at Plumpton a month ago but for a very bad mistake when making ground at the third last. Marcus Antonius was a long way behind and looks held and the remainder will need to improve to take a hand.
