COMEDIAN LEADER comes out as the likeliest winner, with the Gay Kelleway stable in among the winners recently. Only beaten a nose on her final start for Alice Haynes, she made her debut for new connections at Newmarket where she was hampered at the start before coming home a four-length last of eight. She has been dropped 2lb and looks ready to get off the mark. Menalippe has a chance if blinkers do the business, while Senor Pockets is also noted.
Prediction : 1st Comedian Leader 2nd Menalippe 3rd Senor Pockets

David O'Meara has hit a rich vein of form lately and it may be worth chancing IMPERIAL KHAN. Still a maiden after six starts, he was beaten less than three lengths at Ripon off this mark earlier in the month and may do better if ridden with a little more restraint. Wrought Iron is an obvious danger with successes at Wolverhampton and Lingfield already this season, while Glasstrees deserves a win after some decent placed efforts.
Prediction : 1st Imperial Khan 2nd Wrought Iron 3rd Glasstrees

Dubai Immo wasn't at his best when fourth at Yarmouth last month, but would be the one to beat here if he can repeat his length fourth at Nottingham in May. He wears a tongue-tie now and may find improvement, but it is interesting that Hollie Doyle rides the newcomer QUANTICO. The son of Make Believe is starting off at a sensible level and might make a winning debut. Good Measure was only beaten a length when third at Nottingham last month and is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Quantico 2nd Dubai Immo 3rd Good Measure

In this competitive contest marginal preference is for DIFFIDENT SPIRIT, who shaped better than the bare result suggests when sixth at Kempton last time out. The son of Sayif can defy a quick turnaround and gets the nod to record a third career victory. The handicapper continues to give Global Art a chance and he merits consideration, while Must Be Royale is another to note.
Prediction : 1st Diffident Spirit 2nd Global Art 3rd Must Be Royale

19:05 Chelmsford City

BRUTE FORCE boasts a tremendous record at this venue and the Roger Teal-trained six-year-old gets the nod to record a second victory over C&D. The son of Paco Boy stayed on in determined fashion to get the better of Bayston Hill on his penultimate outing and he can repeat that feat. The latter must be respected, while Wendell's Lass completes the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Brute Force 2nd Bayston Hill 3rd Wendells Lass

COMPANY MINX is one of two C&D winners in the field following last week's smooth triumph at the Essex track in this grade. She is the joint top-rated horse in the field and it makes a lot of sense to stick with her while she's clearly in good nick and has a 7lb claimer in the plate. Moveonup knows his way around here and makes some appeal, while Glen Etive gets weight from all of his rivals and now has Hollie Doyle doing the steering.
Prediction : 1st Company Minx 2nd Moveonup 3rd Glen Etive

20:15 Chelmsford City

Moving up in trip on her handicap debut at Leicester three weeks ago, SNAP AMBUSH displayed improved form to take second and is well worth another chance. Sir Mark Prescott's filly gets a weight-for-age allowance and is open to stacks more improvement at this stage of her career. Miss Harmony is more experienced than the selection and boasts winning course form, so she's noted along with Asraabb and Hashtagmetoo.
Prediction : 1st Snap Ambush 2nd Miss Harmony 3rd Asraabb
