ALAN has two Thursday bets from Chelmsford.
IN-FORM trainer John Ryan sets a poser by running two fancied horses in the Conditions Stakes at Chelmsford City, with GREY BRITAIN (6.25) winning the vote over Aircraft Carrier.
Grey Britain proved he stayed two miles by beating Watersmeet at Lingfield but was then an expensive failure when only third to Stamford Raffles at Kempton. This faster surface should suit him better. Aircraft Carrier has been off for 52 days since completing his hat-trick at Wolverhampton in mid-January but has progressed throughout the winter. Amade has a good bit to find on official figures but looked useful when justifying strong market support at Kempton.
Although 16 runners go to post for the 1m 2f handicap, GAS MONKEY (7.55) is trading at fairly short odds. He has finished runner-up three times recently, having had the misfortune to run into horses at the peak of their form in the shape of Executive Force and Cashel. This is a bit easier.
