Charlie D won over 1m4f here before going close again over the same trip with Aircraft Carrier not far behind in fourth. The former is fitted with a tongue-tie today for the time while Champarisi also won over 1m4f here last week and it remains to be seen how she copes raised 3lb and upped in class. But PADDY A (NAP) ended the Turf season with a narrow-margin defeat over today's trip at Nottingham having won three times earlier in the year. He's also won on the all-weather before and Ian Williams' charge may prove good enough in this. Western Duke looks best of the rest back on a winning mark though is stepping up in distance.
