Eirene has been set some tough tasks so far this year, but she can make the most of a drop in company for the Greene King IPA Fillies' Conditions Stakes at Chelmsford.

A Listed winner and Group Three-placed as a juvenile, it is easy to see why Dean Ivory felt Pattern race assignments would be just the ticket this term.

While Eirene ran a crack on her return when third in the Nell Gwyn, she found the Pavilion Stakes too tough on her next outing while she was no match for the likes of Expert Eye when 10th in the Jersey.

Ivory then felt she was worth a try in the Stewards' Cup, but she was never really travelling there and was pulled up with two furlongs to run after losing her action.

Clearly it was nothing too serious that day as she is back in action now, but a confidence-boosting win would likely do Eirene the world of good and the conditions of this race give her every chance.

Kodiac Express was far too eager to do herself justice last time, but can bounce back with a little more restraint in the Old Golden Hen Handicap.

Winner of three of her last five starts, she perhaps paid for her early exertions in chasing the pacesetter at Newbury as she dropped away to finish last of five runners.

If able claimer Nicola Currie can harbour her early energy, Kodiac Express could yet pick up the winning thread again for Mike Murphy.

Federal Law looks the class act in the opening East Coast IPA Novice Stakes.

He beat the useful Duke Of Hazzard on his second start, prompting Archie Watson to pitch him into the Vintage Stakes at Goodwood.

Federal Law found Dark Vision far too good that day, although the way he stayed on suggests this step up to a mile will suit.

Alotabottle caught the eye when fourth behind a fellow Declan Carroll inmate on his debut and is one to follow in the Carrs Group PLC British EBF Novice Stakes at Carlisle.

He was outpaced through the early stages over five furlongs that day and ran very green in the process, but the experience should stand him in good stead on this step up to six.

Sempre Presto is a consistent performer who should put up another good show in the Read Silvestre De Sousa At 188Bet Fillies' Handicap at Musselburgh.

She has not won since May, but four defeats in the interim have seen her drop back down to a mark of 67 - the same perch from which she triumphed at the start of the campaign.
