Verdict

WONDERFUL CHARM was yet another winner on last year’s card for Paul Nicholls when landing the odds in this. He was returning from an absence on that occasion too and looks the one to beat again. Gallery Exhibition comes into the reckoning with a conditional’s allowance in his favour while Winged Crusader has had a recent outing when third at Kelso with Thomond behind but has a stack to find on these terms. For Yes and Nine Altars have even more to find and will do well to figure.
