Ten runners in this straight five furlong race and seven of them have been known to lead before so I can see a frantic early pace and most of them running out of stamina nearing the finish, I've got Sir Geoffrey down as my top rated and one of the potential leaders but he does seem like a horse that goes too fast early on in the race and then fades but he has done enough before so cant be dismissed completely, my second top rated is INSOLENCEOFOFFICE 10/1 and this frantic early pace could play into its hands as it likes a fast pace to aim at and pick them off late on, I will be backing this horse and having a saving bet on SIR GEOFFREY 12/1 but only as cover because it the top rated.
5:40 Chelmsford - Only eight runners in a class four race but it still looks like a tricky race, I've got Foreign Diplomat and Whip Up A Freenzy marked down as possible hidden dangers but I don't think it will be either of them here, Guishan is my third best and the only known front runner in the field and if it gets an uncontested lead and tries to pinch the race from the front it just might get away with it, Yeeoow is my second top rated but this one seems to be on the decline lately and was well beaten by the selection last time they met, HOOFALONG 3/1 is my top rated and a repeat of its last run should be enough to follow up this time but stakes will be on the low side because of the two three year olds that could still have improvement to come.
