Timeform pick out three bets from Chelmsford on Thursday evening...
"...she's probably ended up with a lenient mark as a result..."
Timeform on Talaaqy
Mr Marrakech and Glendevon are both by the late Scat Daddy and look to have bright futures ahead of them having landed novice events in good style. The latter has the stronger form, but the selection has the edge in terms of fitness and a more suitable draw, so he gets the narrow vote, with Arbalet regarded as a danger to them both if able to get back on track.
Talaaqy wasn't as impressive as might have been expected when maintaining her unbeaten record on her second outing at Catterick recently, but the track wasn't to her liking that day and she's probably ended up with a lenient mark as a result, so she's expected to make it three from three at the main expense of Fountain of Time, who is also yet to taste defeat. No More Thrills looks best of the remainder.
Weekender was steadily progressive last season, relishing the step up to this trip at Ascot on his final start, finishing first past the post but subsequently demoted to second in the stewards room. He remains low-mileage and rates the type to do even better this season so is fancied to make a winning return. Ocean of Love is also going the right way, and along with Higher Power, heads the dangers.
