OUR CHARLIE BROWN (4.30) arrives at the top of his game and is taken to land an ordinary 1m 2f handicap at Doncaster.
He took up it up full of running over a furlong out at Beverley on Tuesday but faded into third behind rallying Zihaam. The stiff finish seemed to find out my selection and he is probably at his very best over a slightly shorter distance. However, Our Charlie Brown is so well handicapped that this flatter track may not prove so demanding on his stamina and trainer Adrian Keatley has enrolled 7lb apprentice Harry Russell. He can be be four places each-way with most firms.
Fast ground brings out the best in HARROVIAN (3.55) and he can strike for dream team John Gosden and Frankie Dettori.
Ten furlongs is his ideal trip and the top weight scored twice on lively surfaces last season. Harrovian did well on his return to action at Haydock, chasing home Babbo’s Boy on good to soft, and gets the vote over Elector, having his initial start for David O’Meara since leaving Sir Michael Stoute.
