DILMUN DYNASTY (2.30) was a little disappointing last time but Sir Michael Stoute has found the son of Sea The Stars a suitable opening at Chepstow.
My selection didn't appear to have progressed from a promising debut when only fourth to Durrell at Chelmsford City but the form of that race is beginning to work out quite well. He should be good enough to see off market rival Saffran.
Stoute saddles EL PICADOR (2.00) with each-way prospects in the 1m 2f handicap. Although carrying top weight, El Picador has been dropped 2lb following his fifth to Jackamundo at Nottingham. A visor replaces blinkers.
FOX VARDY (7.40) can make a winning handicap debut if there is some rain around at Windsor this evening. Andrew Balding's colt showed up well at Salisbury (soft) when finishing third to Mankayan in a 1m 4f maiden. That form received a quick boost a few days later when the horse that finished fourth, John Gosden's Make My Day, won at Goodwood. Fox Vardy had three lengths in hand of Make My Day and is the value bet against hot favourite Asian Angel, a wide margin winner at Ayr last Friday evening. The ground was fast at Ayr but underfoot conditions may be different here.
