Small fields at Chelmsford are preferred to the low-grade fare at Kempton.
"Precision Five deserves to be favourite after being unlucky to merely dead-heat last time and she’s consistent, too. Some may point to unproven stamina, though she’s never looked short of it and is bred to get this far on her dam’s side."
14:00 - We're risking first-leg embarrassment, but rest assured it won't be an expensive perm anyway. Cornelious is a debutant and Rockfast shaped as though his stamina was stretched over shorter last time, so Qatar Falcon, who'll benefit from a greater test at this trip.
14:30 - India's Song is the likeliest winner and also the most dependable among those that matter in this handicap, so she's our selection here.
15:05 - With Firgrove Bridge badly out of sorts, we can take Plaisir, Glorious Dancer and Mojawiz and count ourselves dreadfully unlucky if we don't get through.
15:40 - There's no reason to think that Wentworth Falls, essentially progressive all along, won't give his running here and he sets the standard on form. He's an easy route through after the setback in leg three.
16:10 - Black Iceman and Born To Reign are the most reliable performers in this low-grade handicap. They're also among the market leaders, though that comes with the territory in races like this.
16:40 - Precision Five deserves to be favourite after being unlucky to merely dead-heat last time and she's consistent, too. Some may point to unproven stamina, though she's never looked short of it and is bred to get this far on her dam's side.
