Chelmsford is the only card without a four-runner race and therefore gets our attention for the Placepot.
"Bint Dandy has a strongly positive profile and won over C&D last time. With the field closely matched behind her, she gets in as a banker in leg four."
17:55 - Our choice essentially lies between Frenzified and Falcon's Song. Though the first named is by Yeats and bound to be suited by 10 furlongs, this being her third start opens up the distinct possibility of her needing the run after a break. Falcon's Song ran just last month and, though she isn't as stoutly bred, she shaped as though further than a mile would suit on her debut. She's the selection.
18:30 - Anwar doesn't have the level of form you'd expect of an odds-on chance, though with her being by far the most experienced of these early-season two-year-olds she's definitely our most logical option for the Placepot.
19:05 - There is a bit more of a decision to be made in this leg. Bertie Blu Boy is a fairly safe inclusion, but he isn't a safe banker, mindful of the pace battle he was drawn into last time and the fact that many of his rivals are also prominent racers. That last assumption in itself leads towards things going Borough Boy's way and his case is helped by a relatively consistent profile last season.
19:40 - Bint Dandy has a strongly positive profile and won over C&D last time. With the field closely matched behind her, she gets in as a banker in leg four.
20:10 - Though respected, favourite Well Off is opposable. First Dream is on a hat-trick and will be suited by the longer trip, while Noro Lim shaped well on his return and is very much the type to do better as a three-year-old.
20:40 - With three places available to us in the final leg as it stands, Zampa Manos looks to offer us a fair chance to bank. He should get to lead, has fitness and a sound recent run in his favour and his slight drawback, a tendency to find less than most, needn't be such a black mark in the Placepot.
