6/1 from 11/1
2yo JAMAIS ASSEZ is fully entitled to come on a fair bit for his first run and it's interesting that there is money around for him today. His talented half-sister went well on cut so there's every chance he'll relish the soft conditions today. A nice each-way play against a penalised odds on jolly!
8/1 from 22/1
QUICKSTEP LADY is another once raced 2yo who is clearly expected to improve today. To be fair the yard's runners often do and for all that this is always a good race, this one must be showing something at home. She's related to some smart types and it will be fascinating to see how she fares today. Really well backed.
3/1 from 4/1
STARFIGHTER, for that man Oisin Murphy, is now a clear favourite in the lucky last. He's in good form, with a string of 2nds, and the yard have banged in a couple of winners in the past week. In a trappy contest he should run his race first time under Murphy and punters like this one over the others. Now the one to beat receiving weight from the field.

A significant gamble on John Butler's KEEP ON LAUGHING is occuring at Chelmsford this evening. He's only had the three runs, and was up there for a long way last time out, but he does have a fair bit to find on official ratings. The jockey's 5lb claim will help but stall 16 is a bit of a shocker. Does someone know something here?!
