Ben Linfoot: 7.15 Stosur
STOSUR has become very hard to win with but she's got plenty in her favour at Chelmsford on Thursday and looks a bet at the prices. She's back down to a rating of 72 after a couple of below-par runs, but three starts ago she ran off that number at Chelmsford and lost out by a neck at 25/1. This is her first start at the track since and it's also the first time Adam Kirby has ridden her since she won off a 2lb higher mark at Southwell almost exactly a year ago. She's going to be prominent in this small field, perhaps just sitting off the pace set by Corked, and though that rival will be tough to pass there's every chance she'll set the race up for another horse again like she did last time. Hopefully that horse can be Stosur.
Jamie Maynard & Anita Chambers: 8.15 Cappananty Con
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. (Jamie Maynard)
CAPPANANTY CON has been in fine form in recent weeks and he can defy a career-high mark of 80 to win the Bet totetrifecta At Betfred.com Handicap at Chelmsford. The three-year-old has a bit of a mixed profile, having kicked off the year in very promising style before slightly going off the boil on a couple of occasions in the summer before enjoying a little break. He likely needed his first couple of runs back in October, but he showed significant improvement to hit the frame at Kempton last month before claiming his third career win at Chelmsford last time out. Cappananty Con won a reasonable handicap two weeks ago, racing prominently before finding plenty in the closing stages to win by three-quarters of a length. He has been raised 3lb for that success but appears to still have a little in the locker and is definitely one for the shortlist here. (Anita Chambers)
