Chelmsford Friday Night Tips

4.35 Bold Decision 1.5 pt win @ 5’4 General Price (NB) – Showed little in Ireland last year but has started at short prices in three runs for this yard and shown promise in defeat, not least when a clear second off this mark on Monday; obvious claims upped another furlong

5.10 The British Lion 1/2 pt ew @ 5’1 General Price – Done his winning on Tapeta but has been running well enough at this sort of level on Polytrack of late; adaptable as regards tactics (may be dropped in again from this draw) and holds solid each-way claims against Elusif

5.45 Papa Power 1pt win @ 15’8 General Price – Good pedigree but he was sent off 12-1 for last month’s C&D debut and weakened late on to finish fifth, beaten just over 10l; should be sharper with the experience behind him and can do better

6.15 Equally Fast 1pt ew @ 4’1 General Price (NAP) –  Going right-handed at Kempton didn’t suit two starts back but he won his debut for this yard at Lingfield previously and only found one too strong at Wolverhampton on Wednesday and still looks well treated on old form

6.45 Lady Shanawel 1/2 pt ew @ 11’2 General Price – Started favourite for a similar race over C&D three weeks ago, when behind Carvelas and Dolphin Village; a stronger pace would suit her too

7.15 Siena Mia 1/2 pt ew @ 9’2 General Price –  Easy winner from the front last Friday but was allowed to dictate a steady pace over a straight 7f on Tapeta and this represents a different test; is 3lb well in under the penalty, though, is relatively unexposed and her yard is in good form

7.45 Broughton Excels 1pt win @ 3’1 General Price – Class 7 winner over C&D in September and was then second on his next three starts; not so good since but he returns to 0-55 company here and his stable are in flying form; big run on the cards

8.15 Jorvik Prince 1pt win @ evens General Price –  Had tumbled down the weights prior to last week’s facile 5f win here on his first start for Mick Appleby; that trip probably his optimum and he could have been better drawn but he has won over 6f and is officially 6lb well in under his penalty; obvious claims
