NAP Viscount Loftus 11/4 (whill) – Haydock 17:10 – 2pts win Lost -2pts
Viscount Loftus was only caught in the final strides at Ayr last week, on first run over seven furlongs, eventually finishing third but only a half-length behind the winner. Twice a winner on fast ground over shorter trips last season, he gets conditions to suit again here and should have learnt a lot from his narrow defeat last week so looks to have a great chance of gaining victory today, especially as he is partnered with William Buick who arrives here in excellent form and has a good record both for the trainer and at the course.
NB Udontdodou 7/2 (B365) – Chelmsford 16:20 – 2pts win Lost -2pts
Verne Castle has won three from five over track and trip but has struggled to get competitive at this level previously, while Tropics is unbeaten in two at the course but is 5lbs higher than his last victory so could be vulnerable today. Bosham has won his last three on an all-weather surface and has a record of five wins from eleven over course and distance. Despite a 6lbs rise for victory last time out he has won off higher marks in the past so has to be considered, but in a competitive looking race preference is for Udontdodou who also boasts a fantastic record here, winning four from five including two from two over today’s five-furlong trip. He was only beaten a neck on his last run on an all-weather surface and the return to Chelmsford coupled with a return to the minimum trip can see him get back to winning ways today.
3B Seniority 11/2 (PP) – Chelmsford 15:50 – 2pts win WON +11pts
Seniority battled well to record victory over course and distance last month, his first run in six months, beating a number of higher rated rivals in the process. Today sees a slight step up in class but as a result he gets in towards the bottom of the weights and the booking of Ryan Moore, who has a 34% winning strike rate in the last 12 months when riding for William Haggas and a 42% winning strike rate in the last 12 months at the course, could give him the edge and make all the difference here.
