Kim Bailey's CHARBEL must have a massive chance, having improved this season for the step up to distances of around two and a half miles.

He was only just pipped by King George-bound Politologue at Ascot last time and his earlier Chepstow defeat of Baron Alco reads even better since the runner-up's Cheltenham big-racer success last month.

At Wincanton on Thursday DANSE IDOL was hugely impressive when quickstepping away with the mares' maiden hurdle for Paul Nicholls.

Bought for £110,000 after finishing second to Cheltenham Champion Bumper winner Relegate at Punchestown in January she looked as if she might just be worth the outlay when powering home in a time more than five seconds faster than the earlier handicap over the same 2m5f trip.

She will surely have a part to play in some much bigger races later in the season.
