19:40 Chelmsford – Encore D’or (BEST ODDS 5/1 with Bet Victor)
Encore D’or looks a top prospect dropping down in class here. He has ran in Listed company in his last two races and was by no means disgraced by his efforts. This looks a much easier race to win, despite being top weight here. Having one of the world’s best jockeys in Ryan Moore on board is a massive plus. He has had no problems with the ground, course or distance in the past. In fact, I’m surprised that’s he’s available to back at such a big price. The main danger is Mazzini, but I’m not convinced that he has what it takes to deal with a ten pound increase in weight. At the prices, I’m very happy at my selection and you could even back each-way for added security. Ryan Moore really is a cut above the rest of the jockeys in this field and his booking on Encore D’or speaks volumes in my opinion.
