10/3

Three-time winner at three took form to new levels when winning 7f Listed race at Newbury on return where she travelled and quickened like a Group class performer. Hard to give weight to Billesdon Brook but may still be biggest danger.

6/5

Dual Group One winner took this race last year en-route to winning the Sun Chariot Stakes and a similar plan is likely here. Head and shoulders better than most of these on ratings and hard to oppose on balance.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: Barry McHugh |  T: T D Easterby|  OR: 82|  D
150/1

Dual turf winner a fair performer but rated 32lb inferior to Billesdon Brook and likely to take Stakes record to 0-4 here.

66/1

Progressive last season but came up short in lone Listed try and having struggled for form this term she is expected to have similar problems today.

15/2

Lightly raced filly open to further improvement this term but put in her place by Mubtasimah at Newbury first time out so hard to fancy here.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: L Morris |  T: Sir Mark Prescott|  OR: 99|  D
7/2

Placed five times in nine starts at this level including second to Mubtasimah at Newbury on return. Gets 3lb now so ought to push that rival even closer although there was plenty in hand for the winner there.

Age: 5|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: S W Kelly |  T: Sir Michael Stoute|  OR: 97|  D
10/1

Listed winner last year and not far behind Billesdon Brook in Snowdrop at Kempton on return. Received weight there however which she doesn't here.

Age: 4|  Weight: 9-0  |  J: Angus Villiers |  T: Richard Spencer|  OR: 87|  D
100/1

Placed once in five starts at this level but rated just 87 which gives her an absolute mountain to climb today.

Betting

Forecast

Billesdon Brook (6/5), Mubtasimah (10/3), Miss Celestial (7/2), Farzeen (15/2), Shepherd Market (10/1), Excellent Times (66/1), Stay Classy (100/1), Chicago May (150/1)

Verdict
2018 1000 Guineas and 2019 Sun Chariot Stakes winner BILLESDON BROOK is the star attraction at Chelmsford this evening and she looks to have a golden opportunity to follow up her win in this race 12 months ago on her only previous visit to the course. Impressive Newbury winner Mubtasimah looks an improving filly and she is a real threat although giving 3lb to a dual G1 winner will be a tough task. Miss Celestial was just behind Mubtasimah at Newbury and she shouldn't be far away either.
  1. Billesdon Brook
