Between The Waters traded at [1.17] in the run for Alan yesterday but could only manage second. He is hoping to go one better with a pair of picks for Tuesday's Chelmsford card...

Fanshawe's Charm can build on debut at Kempton
17:40 Chelmsford - Back Turn On The Charm @ [4.7]
Some powerful connections from Newmarket are sending runners for the Chelmsford 17:40.
Sir Michael Stoute has two regally-bred horses in the shape of Chairman Power and Prince Imperial.
Charlie Appleby also has entered a well-bred son of Dubawi.
However, I am sticking with experience and will be backing the James Fanshawe-trained Turn On The Charm.
He showed a fair bit of ability at Kempton over 7f, and I expect him to improve on that with an extra furlong - which should suit on pedigree.
He was on the outside when he chased the steady pace, and that bit of extra experience could serve him well considering he was a little keen through the early part. That Kempton run is a solid piece of form for this, and I am happy to take around the 5.0 mark.
Waterproof can outstay rivals
19:40 Chelmsford - Back Waterproof @ [9.0]
With the rather inclement weather at the moment, and inspections for Catterick and Leicester for Tuesday, Waterproof is an apt selection for a rather moderate race, and we'll stick with the all-weather again given the conditions elsewhere.
It's mostly class six stuff at the Essex venue, but Waterproof showed a much improved effort at Kempton recently over 1m4f.
He wore cheekpieces for the first time and received a prominent ride, so it's a plus coming back down in distance to 1m2f if he pushes on again.
Kempton was riding on the slow side for his latest effort, and there is a chance Shaun Keightley's runner could outstay them.
It's a poor race, and I would rather take him over Sharp Operator - who has form over shorter.
