DIEGO DU CHARMIL (3.26 Plumpton, nb)
He has been keeping fancy company and returns to handicapping off a realistic mark.
This distance suits and he has a touch of class.
FIRST EXCEL (3.36 Southwell, treble)
He went close here last time and has a useful 5lb claimer in the saddle today, which can get him over the line.

2.16 Ask The Lady
Much better effort at Huntingdon and should be good enough.
