Timeform on Luna Eclipse

Visionary - 19:05 Chelmsford

It could be worth taking a chance on Visionary, who should be sharper following his reappearance in listed company on heavy ground at Doncaster last month. He can boast a good record on the all-weather, and makes his belated handicap debut off an attractive mark, while the booking of James Doyle also adds to his appeal. Dark Side Dream failed to fire on all cylinders last time, but will be a danger to all if on-song this time, and Maakaasib also merits respect.

Luna Eclipse - 20:35 Chelmsford

Luna Eclipse is firmly on the progressive path now, winning her last two starts on the all-weather, latest over this C&D from 7 lb lower. He was sent for home turning into the straight, showing his liking for the step up to this trip, perhaps winning with a bit more in hand than the half-length margin suggests. There should be more to come from him and he is fully expected to complete a hat-trick. Ode To Autumn is also bidding for a three-timer and is feared most in what looks a good race for the grade.

Secret Art - 21:05 Chelmsford

Secret Art made an encouraging return at Kempton last month, and has been given a chance by the handicapper. Admittedly, he failed to build on that at Newmarket last time, but that was much more competitive than this, and the smaller field here will suit, too. He is expected to resume winning ways at the main expense of Lacan, who has a good record on the all-weather and is proving consistent at the minute.
