BORN A KING (6.00) was fairly lit up by the first-time cheekpieces and never saw another rival at Lingfield nine days ago. A follow-up is on the cards at Chelmsford City this evening.
William Haggas has no hesitation in stripping his colt for action under a fixed penalty in this 1m 2f handicap. Princess Bride didn’t win any bouquets in two dismal efforts at Meydan last winter but she would have a big chance if re-discovering the form of her second to Brentford Hope in a Newmarket maiden last autumn. Molinari likes to race up with the speed and his course and distance second in August gives him a squeak.
At Ffos Las, BUCK BRAVO (2.08) is turned out quickly on the back of Monday’s Newton Abbot success and the gelding also posted a course and distance victory in May. Memphis Bell won a conditional jockeys’ contest under Isabel Williams at Fontwell and this in-form mare should be involved.
