Tim Easterby sends his Dellaguista on a seven-hour round trip in search of a quickfire double after scoring at Wolverhampton recently and is sure to go close but a 7lb rise in the weights isn’t ideal and his handler has yet to have any success on his visits to the Essex track. Titan Goddess has won over course and distance twice in her last four starts but will need to find some more improvement as she has struggled off this mark in the past though does have conditions to suit here. The one I think who will take some beating though is stable-debutant CORKED who signed off from Hugo Palmer’s with a close second over track and trip and any further improvement from the switch to Ed Walker’s yard would see this four-year old tough to beat. Her front-running tactics have been utilised to good effect so far this winter and she has shown a tough attitude when coming under pressure. None of her rivals seem to like being up with the pace so this filly may get an uncontested lead and if so could be hard to peg back especially as she is eased in class and remains on the same mark as that most recent second placed effort.

An intriguing and compact handicap over the six-furlong trip and you’d have to be a brave man to rule any of these out. Envisaging gained his first success at the eleventh time of asking when landing a Newcastle maiden but may struggle to land the double against stronger opposition. Aleef tried to make all a fortnight ago and is sure to make another bold show from the front off the same mark with Adam Kirby now booked for the ride. Nezar is one of two Dean Ivory-trained runners in this and he’s been knocking on the door off this mark over the past few weeks and now better drawn could find himself going closer but it’s his stablemate CAPPANANTY CON who I think will prevail here. This three-year old beat the aforementioned the last day and the form of that race has some substance to it with a winner coming out of it. The selection is 4lb worse off than for that victory but got the job done nicely and stable jockey Robert Winston has chosen to keep the ride which is a big plus. He got into a nice position racing prominently and was always travelling strongly and if applying similar tactics here then you’d have to think he’ll be a major player again.
