Eight runners are ready to present themselves for the Hills Prospect Premier Cru Handicap (7.20pm), the most valuable race on Tuesday’s card at Chelmsford with £13,500 offered to the winner.
Vulcan (112) leads the pack on Timeform’s weight-adjusted ratings after producing a career-high to retake victory at Newcastle last time out, staying well to win by two-and-a-half lengths. This appeals with its very solid form, underpinned by a sonic gallop and a good time, and Vulcan remains interesting from only 6 pounds more. Indeed, it is not excluded that he has even more to offer after only three tenures for Ralph Beckett, who has the Flag ‘Hot Trainer’ to point out that his stable is in poor health.
Sir Michael Stoute, who also has the Flag ‘Hot Trainer’saddles two riders on a track where he has an impressive 23% strike rate since the start of the 2018 season. boss power (111) has won three of his four all-time starts and the way he’s shaped himself on the turf recently suggests he’s still on the right track, while a stable mate Japan Japan (110) can line up from the same mark as filling the second spot in a similar event at this course and distance in April.
Top weight State power (109) has won three times at this course and distance in 2020 and showed he can be competitive from this mark when he was beaten just a neck in third at Wolverhampton in February. He made a rare mediocre effort at this course last month, but it won’t be a surprise if he leaves that effort behind now on the trip. Marvel Elmossman (108) finished two places ahead of Power of States when he was third here last time out, but it wasn’t the first time he looked wayward under pressure.
sea shells (109) fit as if retaining full ability after 14 months out when sixth in Vulcan’s race won at Newcastle last time out, briefly making progress in the final three stages before his effort failed flattens. It was also his first start for Roger Teal (formerly trained by Mark Johnston) and it will be interesting to see what he can do here with his reappearance under his belt.
The field is completed by Everything today (108) and bad company (107). Anythingtoday was not disgraced in fourth place at Windsor last time out for George Boughey, who also has the Flag ‘Hot Trainer’while Bad Company will at least find it easier than the handicap in which he finished fifth at Epsom six weeks ago.
Timeform analyst’s verdict:
Vulcan confirmed his return to form the last time he had a career best effort and he can continue his success at Newcastle. Having only had 3 starts for Ralph Beckett so far, the 5-year-old might still have more to offer to take on the challenge of the pair formed by Sir Michael Stoute of Boss Power and Satono Japan, with the former having won 3 of his 4 departures at any time.
