13:20 Chepstow

The Andrew Balding trained Attache (best priced at 6/4) got off the mark last time at Brighton in first time blinkers and should hold strong claims under a 6lb penalty. The three-year-old had disappointed in handicaps since being allocated an opening handicap mark of 68 but he found a mark of 59 too lenient last time. 

Connections fitted the gelding with first time blinkers and they worked a treat with him travelling a lot better throughout the race before stretching clear to win by 2 ¾ lengths. That was over 7f but the way he hit the line that day gives the impression that this step back up to a mile should suit and I expect him to prove hard to beat under a penalty if the blinkers work for a second time. 

Attache - 1pt @ 6/4

The John Best & Karen Jewell trained Gisells Izzy (best priced at 6/4) is yet to win in her five career starts but she looks to have a good opportunity in this race. The three-year-old showed very little in her first three starts but has run well on her two starts in handicaps since. She finished 4th only beaten a length on her handicap debut at Chelmsford in March off a mark of 54 before finishing a nose 2nd at Lingfield a week ago. 

The handicapper has raised Gisells Izzy 4lbs for that effort but she can run here off previous mark meaning that she is 4lbs “well in” at the weights. She faces similar conditions in this race and should hopefully prove hard to beat in this race. 

Giselles Izzy - 1pt @ 6/4

14:10 Brighton

Batchelor Boy (best priced at 4/1) has shown his best form at Brighton in his career with form figures of 1371341 here and he looks sure to run well again here again. The five-year-old won twice here last season off marks of 70 and 73 before winning over 7f here last month off a mark of 70. 

The John Gallagher trained gelding showed a good attitude to win by a nose that day and he should appreciate this drop in trip back to down to 6f in this race. The handicapper has raised him 3lbs which is fair and a mark of 73 should still prove within reach. 

Batchelor Boy - 1pt @ 4/1
