17:45 Chelmsford City Thu 20 September 2018
Dual winner at this trip but facing a stiff task at these weights judged on his last two runs in nurseries.
Stepped up on previous efforts to comfortably land a gamble in a C&D nursery in a quick time. The form amounts to little but hard to fault the performance.
Had a few subsequent winners behind, most notably Super Sprint winner Ginger Nut, when readily making all to score at Lingfield. Highly tried since but back to a level where she has a chance to dominate on AW debut.
Winner of a minor event at Brighton but strictly held by Country Rose on a line through Ginger Nut. Makes AW debut.
Opened her account off a low mark in a Sandown nursery when the strong pace helped. This should be quick too, but she faces a much sterner test. Hood fitted for first time.
Will appreciate the return to a sharper 5f after failing to fulfil previous promise at Sandown last time. Danger in receipt of the allowances on AW debut
Claims on the pick of his Irish form but his last two runs over here suggest he has a tough task on these terms.
