For those interested in having a bet generally we have some information that might be of some use at Chelmsford tonight. They are NOT tips.
TREAGUS 5.25: This is far weaker than the two maidens he has run in so far. Ran at the track last time so that helps and hopefully he can continue to improve a bit more before heading off for a winter break. Charlie Fellowes
DEVON COVE 6.25: Only second career run - well down the field on debut at HQ so a lot more required. One for the future so hoping she can grab a bit more experience here and kick on from there. Jane Chapple-Hyam
SPIRITUAL STAR 6.55: Ran a cracker to be second at Kempton last time out. Is a past CD winner at the track so no issues on that front and only a pound higher than last time. Paddy gets on well with the horse, does need to overcome the draw in 11, but recent track stats have shown good results from horses drawn higher, so not too worried. If Paddy can work some magic then e/w claims based on his last run - he's fit and well. Lee Carter
FANTASY GLADIATOR 6.55: Not getting any younger at 10, but still showing an appetite for thegame. Last win was back in September 15, but has run well in defeat in several races since. Fair mark on old form and ran well on the track back between 2008 - 2010, so worth a try back here again. No hiding place for him though in races like this anymore but off this mark would not be surprised to see him make his presence felt - however, one of those races that looks to have 5-6 possible winners! Mick Appleby
MAJESTIC MYLES 7.25: Another with not the best draw in 10, but this drop back to 7f will suit. Ran third in a hot claimer behind a fair horse in Fort Bastion last time and that horse has followed-up since. Back into a handicap (0-70) here so more needed but the track and trip will suit. Might need plenty of luck from that draw though as normally likes to front run, but we'll give it a go and could sneak into a place. Lee Carter
GLORIOUS DANCER 7.55: Plenty of non-runners help our cause as does Adam Kirby riding. Returns to Chelmsford - the scene of his only career win - so that's a plus and looks very well-handicapped being 14lbs lower than that win. Disappointed in the cheekpieces last time, so we are leaving them off here. Trying him back up in trip here too (1m2f) so if Adam can switch him off (drop him in) then would not be surprised to see him run better than his odds suggest. Lee Carter
OUTBACK PRINCESS 7.55: Race seems to have cut-up a bit with several non-runners. First run after a break, but working well at home though and if she can put that onto the racecourse, should have e/w chance. Gary Moore
