Fieldsman - Chelmsford 18:15

Fieldsman shaped encouragingly when third on stable debut/after five months off at Southwell two weeks ago, holding every chance entering the final two furlongs and only weakening once the lack of a recent run began to tell close home (though the return to seven furlongs is likely to suit here, too). With Andrea Atzeni taking over in the saddle, Fieldsman would appear to hold sound claims if building on that and is fancied to capitalise on a potentially lenient mark. Clear Water and Time To Reason head the list of dangers.

Commander Han - Chelmsford 18:45

Commander Han has a very appealing profile and was impressive when making it third time lucky in a minor event over seven furlongs here in February, quickly forging clear from the home turn to win with loads in hand. The step up to a mile should hold no fears on that evidence and he is fancied to follow up, open to more improvement after just three starts after all. Narcos and Sallab may emerge next best, though newcomer Mootasadir requires close market scrutiny.

Anythingtoday - Chelmsford 19:15

Anythingtoday was largely progressive last term and possibly found the effects of a busy second half to the campaign catching up with him when well held on his final start at York in October. He's since joined a yard that consistently does well with such types and it would be no surprise if there would be more to come from him now embarking on his four-year-old campaign, still just 1 lb higher than when finishing a close third at Newbury in September. Maratha and Kyllachy Gala are a couple of others to consider.
