Chelmsford City - Friday 17th August 2018

  • 17:50 - Bet toteplacepot At Novice Stakes (Plus 10)

    LOVIN showed a fair amount of promise on debut when fifth in a Goodwood maiden behind Feel Glorious over 6f. The drop in trip looks likely to suit the daughter of Orb, who can improve from that effort with the assistance of champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa. Autumn Splendour only beat one rival home when ninth behind Dark Vision at York but he is better judged on earlier form, while Isaan Queen completes the shortlist.

  • 18:20 - Bet toteexacta At Maiden Auction Stakes (Plus 10)

    One To Go would set the standard on form with his second at Nottingham in handicap company 10 days ago a solid enough effort. That said, he could be vulnerable against some unraced types and ANYCITY looks capable of making it a winning start. His half-sister Agent Allison won impressively on her debut before going on to place at Group 2 level, and he represents a trainer doing well with juveniles. Set With The Stars and Capla Flyer are both respected.

  • 18:50 - Bet Totequadpot At Handicap

    HUMBERT took a deserved success at Newcastle having gone close in competitive handicaps on turf earlier on in the season and a 3lb rise for that looks more than fair for Hugo Palmer's gelding. Salateen arrives in good heart having placed in a Listed contest at Pontefract behind Big Country and he can go close off top weight, while Race Day won well at Sandown when last seen and could have more to offer.

  • 19:20 - Bet Totetrifecta At Handicap

    QUEEN IN WAITING had Alsvinder (second), Midnight Malibu (third), Verne Castle (fourth) and Dynamo Walt (seventh) behind when scoring impressively over this C&D two weeks ago and, although a subsequent 8lb rise is hefty, she looks capable of confirming placings with those rivals and following up. Handicap debutant Corinthia Knight can't be ruled out.

  • 19:55 - Bet Toteswinger At Handicap

    Right at the foot of the weights, it might pay to side with Hugo Palmer's unexposed three-year-old RASHDAN. Both on his victories thus far have come on an all-weather surface and he won with enough in hand at Newcastle last time to suggest he can defy a 5lb rise in the ratings. Adamant is another lightly-raced gelding and he warrants respect dropping back in distance for his all-weather debut, while dual course winner Secret Art merits shortlist inclusion.

  • 20:30 - Garrie Henwood 50th Birthday Handicap

    CAT ROYALE kept on well in the closing stages when third over the extended mile at Wolverhampton last time and is expected to improve for this step back up in trip. Shamonix is fitted with a first-time visor after going down by a head over track and trip earlier in the month and is unlikely to be far away at the line, while Angel Of The North wasn't far behind her in the same race 13 days ago and will be interesting again if attracting support.

  • 21:00 - Innovate Nationwide And Oakleafe Claims Handicap

    FINAL CHOICE bolted up by five lengths over track and trip last week and is expected to remain competitive now turned out swiftly under a penalty. Twister has been running creditably in defeat over 1m4f at Lingfield and is a live danger to the selection now tackling this stiffer test in receipt of weight-for-age. The pick of the remainder may be recent Beverley winner General Zoff, who has a 3lb rise to contend with.
