IMPRESSIVE Imphal gave me a double-stake winner on Thursday for a 6pt profit.
I'm now 3.5pts up for October and well done all other winners.
Tribute Act has only run five times but she is already an old favourite for the thread. She has won three of those runs but last time out at Glorious Goodwood her run was too bad to be true. Connections have said she didn't like the course, 87 is still a low mark for this well bred daughter of Exceed and Excel and she must have a good chance here.
Scoop The Pot has been raised 6lb for his last win but still looks on a low mark and can take advantage in this weak looking race. That was Scoop The Pots first run for nine months so should be better for it. Scoop The Pot was only beaten five lengths by Unowhatimeanharry at Cheltenham in November 2015 and hopefully he can kick on from that win last time out.
Chelmsford City 7:45
Alternate Route is Friday's Nap and he is easily the best bet of the day. He has been raised 10lb for his win last time and although he is due to run from a 6lb lower mark in future races he is still well handicapped and should be winning this as he had so much left in the tank last time. He travelled well and has improved for the step up to two miles.
