QUICK TIPS - 7:40 Chelmsford - SAVED MY BACON 4/1 - 8:10 Chelmsford - DYNAMO WALT 11/4 - 8:40 Chelmsford - EMILY DAVISON 2/1 

Only seven runners in this class five race. Chookie's Lass is the only horse with any worthwhile form at Wolverhampton. Also, it's the only known front runner so has to be classed as a danger. Queen Aggie might want further and perhaps the wrong surface for Meebo. Saskias Dream is my second top rated but top rated is SAVED MY BACON 4/1 who was the selection last time out when it won and will hopefully follow up here. 

8:10 Chelmsford - Another seven runner race but at least this is a class three. This course is still new to the scene and form here is still quite scarce. Three horses have been known to lead before but Fair Value usually takes charge when there are no other front runners. Simon Dow's stable is very much out of form for the last two months. Come On Dave could try to lead but only fourth on my ratings. Royal Bajan comes out third top, while second top rated is Doctor Parkes but its being ridden by a seven-pound claimer and taking that into account it moves up to joint top rated with DYNAMO WALT 11/4 and this trainer-jockey combination do quite well. 

8:40 Chelmsford - A six runner race with half the field having been known to lead before. Fleeting Indian is the most natural front runner but its record of no wins from twenty-one races doesn't bode well for its chances. Qatar Princess can lead but usually only does so when there's no other pace-setters so probably won't try this bold tactic. Danzoe is my second top rated and can be held up or tracks the early pace. Top rated is EMILY DAVISON 2/1 and this one has also been known to lead when needs be. With only six runs on the all-weather it's too early to say it doesn't like the surface but it would mean keeping stakes low. It's also only two spots ahead of Danzoe on my figures. 

SUMMARY: Three races with small fields so prices are rather restricted.I'd keep to low stakes and bet three doubles and one treble and hope for the best. I don't believe there's much value in single bets.
