Timeform take you through the card at Chelmsford on Monday.


13:45 - DAZACAM (3) has thrived since being switched to hold-up tactics over this trip, and a strong pace set by the likes of Erissimus Maximus and Street Jazz should suit. This opening mark could well underestimate LITTLE MISS DAISY (10), who did well to win at Lingfield last time from well off the pace, and she is also worth including for the Placepot.

14:15 - ARZAAK (2) is well-bred (cost 110,000 as a foal) and made a promising first start for Chris Dwyer (after leaving Owen Burrows and being gelded) over C&D last time, managing to finish a close second despite meeting some trouble. A repeat of that effort should be enough to see him get off the mark at the fifth attempt.

14:50 - Though he's a fairly short price for betting purposes it is hard not to see HOLIDAY MAGIC (1) in the first three home here after he confirmed his return to form with a win at Wolverhampton last time from a near career-low mark. He is up 4 lb in the weights but remains in the same grade of race as he won last time.

15:20 - Rockley Point ran just about his best race to date under good value claimer Clifford Lee here last time and should run well again, but RIPOLL (1) was just caught by one on a good mark last time at Wolverhampton (Holiday Magic, who runs in the 14:50) and should also be very competitive from just 3 lb higher in the weights (remains in the same grade).

15:50 - SHAHAAMA (8) has form from earlier in the year from higher marks than this (finished second and won from 4 lb higher in the weights) and should have more to offer in this sort of race at some stage given it is still early days for her new yard. At a much bigger price EMILY GOLDFINCH (1) isn't out of this either from this sort of mark if she is ready to go first time for Phil McEntee.

16:20 - The handicapper has seemingly had the measure of BAZZAT (10) since he racked up a three-timer earlier in the year, but he has been eased in the weights slightly and it is interesting to see him reunited with Jim Crowley, who partnered him for all three of this wins. TOMMY'S SECRET (3) was just touched off over C&D in October and looks up to winning something from this sort of mark.

16:50 - This isn't a deep race and Lost The Moon should justify strong early market support after finishing with running left on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time (met trouble). Paper Faces was ahead of him that day, but that form should be reversed here granted a bit more luck in-running.


Win back Lost The Moon in the 16:50
