BELGIAN BILL (stall 1 of 11) failed to settle off a slow pace when only fifth in a Class 2 handicap at Lingfield last time but Chelmsford’s Bet toteexacta At Betfred.com Handicap (7.00) looks easier and he can bounce back from the best of the draw.
He went down by a head when 33-1 at Kempton the last time he ran in Class 3 company and his full Polytrack record stands at: 22411221525 (3-11).
OUT OF THE ASHES (stall 8 of 8) has the worst of the draw in the 1m Bet totetrifecta At Betfred.com Handicap (7.30) but looks the only pace in the race and might be able to get across to the rail. He had little chance from stall 14 over 7f here last time and had run well over the same course and distance on his previous start, finding only one too good despite being drawn in stall 11 of 11 (non-runner adjusted). He’s worth another go at this trip and looks over-priced at 25-1 in places.
Belgian Bill – Chelmsford 7.00 (1pt each-way, 12-1 Betfred, Totesport, Bet365, 11-1 generally)
Out Of The Ashes – Chelmsford 7.30 (1pt each-way, 25-1 William Hill, 22-1 Ladbrokes)
