Nine runners in a class four race over five-furlongs with five of the field having been known to lead before, which isn't surprising over the minimum distance. Dreams Of Glory, trained by Ron Hodges, is seventh top rated, Bapak Bangsawan sixth, Royal Aquisition fifth, Sir Geoffrey fourth. This could be a fast run race. Derek Shaw's gelding, Dynamo Walt, runs in the familiar silks of Brian Johnson, and been in good form of late but comes out third on my rating. Interestingly, that time was run at this course. Second top ranked is Secret Millionaire. Both of these two horses can be held up or track the leaders. The best of the lot is COME ON DAVE 8/1, who is another possible leader but worst drawn of the potential front runners. Being housed in stall eight, it would be hard to catch if getting to the lead but it's looking like a race where stakes should be kept to a minimum. A small each-way bet might show a profit.
3:20 Chelmsford - A class six race over six-furlongs with eleven runners: four have been known to lead before. Eric Winner has given this horse as a top tip for our readers so make use of this great deal Ladbrokes are offering a free £25 matched bet with the promo code which can be found here. Daneglow has only produced slow times for the Mike Murphy team. Salvado, who is seventh top rated, and Steel City Boy, who is fourth top rated, should set a decent early pace. Hatta Stream is third best and can be held up or track the leaders. Second top ranked is Gung Ho Jack, a gelding by Moss Vale trained by John Best, usually tracks the early pace. The horse of most interest here is top weight KODAFINE 4/1, trained by David Evans with apprentice Harry Burns taking a valuable 7lb claim. This four-year-old brown filly, a daughter of talented sire Zodiac, could be the fourth possible leader. Racing in the silks of the trainer's wife, this versatile type has a variety of running style. I doubt it will lead all the way from stall nine, but as long as it gets a clear run whatever tactics it employs I think it must be there at the finish. The apprentice claim should tip the balance in its favour. A big run expected.
Come On Dave 1st 10/1
Kodafine 4/1 4th
