Timeform pick out their three best bets from Chelmsford on Thursday...

"...she pulled clear of the remainder and looks well up to winning a race of this nature..."

Timeform on White Coat

Forbidden Planet - 18:55 Chelmsford

Forbidden Planet and Executive Force both arrive on the up and separating them isn't straightforward, but the former is lightly raced for his age and seemingly is yet to reach his ceiling. He has shown much improved form since joining the Roger Charlton yard, winning both of his starts over this trip at Lingfield, and a further 6 lb rise is unlikely enough to prevent the hat-trick.

White Coat - 19:55 Chelmsford

A potential match between White Coat and Kinver Edge who both set a near-useful standard. The former has some solid form to her name, her latest runner-up effort at Kempton working out well, with the winner having won a similar event since. She was only just beaten that day, too, almost doing enough but just edged out in the final furlong. Still, she pulled clear of the remainder and looks well up to winning a race of this nature.

Cashel - 20:25 Chelmsford

Cashel has improved since joining this yard, building on some promising efforts when winning a handicap over this trip at Kempton last time, and may still have more to offer. Mick Appleby has his string in great order at present and Cashel is fancied to follow up at the main expense of Classic Charm and The King's Steed.
