15:50 Chelmsford City Wed 13 June 2018
Acclamation gelding, not spotted on a British racecourse since 2014 before finishing second over 1m2f here recently. Visor added, down in trip. Work to do on form.
Progressing nicely this year, winning at Goodwood in May (7f, good to firm) before finding Epsom Group 3 too much latest. Should bounce back eased in grade again.
Is a former course winner but well held at Epsom early this month, hard job seemingly to turn things around on these terms.
Multiple winner on the AW and has been running well in this sphere of late, went well enough over 7f here last time and should be in the mix.
Won three of his five starts last year, twice knocked out the door already over this trip at Lingfield in 2018 and far from disgraced in decent Newbury handicap last month on turf in first-time hood (discarded).
Won twice last year from higher marks than this. Bounced back to form with a narrow second over C&D last month, 4lb higher this afternoon following near miss at Epsom this month.
Recorded career best when winning eight-runner handicap over 7f here 13 days ago, has also got three C&D wins on his CV. 6lb higher here but dangerous to discount.
Maiden winner at Brighton but well beaten in a pair of handicaps in July 2016 and not seen since. Entitled to need the run.
Dubawi gelding, not seen for the best part of 600-days on the track. Market may be the best clue to expectations.
Twice gone close of late, over C&D and at Newcastle over this trip. No reason not to suspect another decent showing here and in the mix with fair breaks.
Excelebration colt is a dual winner on the AW at Newcastle but was well held in this grade at that venue in February when last out.
In good form since joining this yard and was victorious in a novice contest over this trip at Lingfield in January. Poor on soft ground at Sandown most recently.
Has won in each of his three year's racing; took his second handicap on seasonal return responding well to pressure to lead close home over 1m. Best in a strongly-run race he looks to have a solid chance despite never having won twice in a year.
Former C&D winner has now gone 15 runs since last win in 2016. Well held here last time over 7f and needs a big step in the right direction.
Went close here over 7f on return to action in April and since run a stormer when 1½L fifth of 27 in Ascot handicap. Should be in the firing line from the same mark.
