Racing: Charm attracts

SILVER CHARM, who beat Swain in last year's Dubai World Cup, is clear favourite with all the leading bookmaking firms to inflict defeat on the Derby winner, High-Rise, who is now a member of the Godolphin operation, in this year's renewal on Sunday.

Odds of 2-1 are the best on offer against Bob Baffert's charge who will face four members of the Godolphin squad, including Central Park who was backed yesterday from 40-1 to 16-1 with William Hill.
