Marco Botti, who is having such a good time on the A.W. Has an interesting contender in the 4yo Latin Charm. This relatively lightly raced Cape Cross gelding made his A.W. Debut a winning one, over the course (1m4f) last November. Racing off a mark of 84 He battled on strongly to get the better of the two years older Xinbama. While Saturday’s race represents a step up in class, this well bred animal may well be up to the challenge.
Leading AW trainer Charlie Appelby is represented by New Years Night. He won a class3 handicap at Lingfield (1m4f) two weeks ago of a mark of 85 and looks very progressive. He came with a strong run inside the final furlong to win cleverly, making Saturday’s Mark of 88 look generous. Coming from a stable in such scintillating form, New Years Night is definitley one to be interested in.
Selection: New Years Night.
