This isn't the best class four race I've seen by a long way but of the eight runners three of them have been known to lead before, Rusty Rocket though hasn't even been placed in eight all weather runs so looks to be a grass only type but the other two front runners are my top two ratings, second top is Fine n Dandy but even though its recorded a fast time I don't think its really a class four horse my top rated is SLEEPY BLUE OCEAN 8/1 and as long as they don't go too fast in front and then fade nearing the finish the field probably wont be able to catch them and the selection has run well the last twice over this course and distance and I do think it will get to the front against these, its second place two runs ago looks good but sixth of eight last time out doesn't look very good but it was beaten under two lengths and wasn't pushed very hard once headed so could probably finished closer, so if it gets to the front and things go its way it must have a decent chance of winning this race.
5:00 Southwell - This is a poor class six race of nine runners and two known front runners, Pull The Pin hasn't won for ages but would possibly have place claims on some of his form from two years ago but I'm not sure if it will ever get back to those times, Robbian is the other known front runner and from stall one could be a bit if a hidden danger as this race will take very little winning, the top two and only two with fast enough times to register last year are Amenable and CIARAS COOKIE 8/1 and I will be backing the top rated selection but the stakes will be kept on the low side as none of them are very consistent animals so very hard to predict from one race to the next.
8:20 Chelmsford - Just eight runners and only one known front runner in Swendab but this one seems better over the minimum trip but if its allowed to set a slower pace with an uncontested lead it might be able to stay in front for a lot of the trip if not all of it, Spellmaker is my third top rated but has been out of form lately and even a return to form may not be enough to win the race, my second top rated is the bottom weight Hamis Al Bin from the Milton Bradley stable and had Luke Morris riding which would perhaps indicate that the stable expect this one to run well but my top rated is COMPTON PRINCE 3/1 and this one is also from the Milton Bradley stable and is being ridden by Franny Norton so these also expect their horse to run a big race but as usual i'll go with my top rated but might also back its stablemate just in case this is the one they want to win the race.
