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

"...a 5 lb rise may not prevent her going in again..."

Timeform on Princess Keira

Breathtaking Look - 19:45 Chelmsford

Breathtaking Look overcame greenness to readily make a winning start to her career at Yarmouth in September and looks capable of defying a penalty with improvement very much on the cards. Heavenly Holly should build on her C&D debut third three weeks ago, while Andrew Balding newcomer Iconic Girl would also come into it if the betting speaks in her favour on debut.

Princess Keira - 20:15 Chelmsford

Princess Keira had a bit up her sleeve when finally opening her account at Yarmouth in September, overcoming unfavourable circumstances, held up in a race where it paid to race up on the pace, and a 5 lb rise may not prevent her going in again. Roland Rocks is down to a good mark and took a step back in the right direction last time. Qallaab rates a likely improver now handicapping and also makes the shortlist.

Turanga Leela - 20:45 Chelmsford

Turanga Leela returned to form from out of the blue when scoring comfortably at Wolverhampton three weeks ago, taking advantage of a much-reduced mark and, given she remains with plenty of handicapping scope on old form, she could be worth chancing to follow up. Wotadoll and Charleston Belle are others to consider, as is John Joiner who is better than he could show on his most recent start.
