A return to a mile can spark a revival in Mankind who looks the best bet of the day in the Book Your Christmas Party At CCR Handicap at Chelmsford.

Archie Watson’s charge has been running over further of late and travelled strongly for a long way before his stamina gave out over a mile-and-three at Kempton last time.

His last run at this trip was his best for his current yard – fourth at the Sunbury track – and he’s now five pounds lower. With Oisin Murphy a positive jockey booking and a handy draw in one, he looks ready to put his best foot forward again.

The unexposed Field Gun looks the answer to the Bet totetrifecta At totesport.com Handicap.

The three-year-old only made his handicap debut at Newcastle last week and ran well to chase home Burford Brown. He’s from the same mark here – at a track where he already has winning form – and faces a fied who are mostly in the assessor’s grip.

Cheekpieces are applied for the first time and if they sharpen him up he could prove too good for these from the bottom of the handicap.

Gentle Look wouldn’t be towards the top of the Godolphin pecking order but he looks ready to open his account in the Bet toteplacepot At totesport.com Nursery.

He may have been turned over at a short-price at Bath last time but he went very strongly through the race and appeals as the sort to benefit from a more patient ride here. He has been given an opening mark of 78 which looks very workable.
