Following a 9/4 winner yesterday, Steve Ryder previews two races at Chelmsford on Wednesday 13th June. P&L +113.69pts.
3:50 Chelmsford- Via Serendipity 6/1 (0.5pt ew)
Via Serendipity was bought for 100k in July 2017 and transferred from Hugo Palmer to Stuart Williams. His first run for the yard was at this course off a mark of 86 where he ran well to finish 3rd before running twice over a mile at Newmarket. He finished 5th in September before winning well off a mark of 85 on his final start of last season in November.
He ran at this course on his reappearance and finished 3rd off a mark of 89. The form of that run has been boosted by the runner up Lucymai winning her next C&D start and the winner Love Dreams winning on at Goodwood on the turf in May.
Via Serendipity ran well in the Victoria Cup at Ascot on his last start to finish 5th off a mark of 90 and should have a good chance now on his return to the AW off the same mark. He is drawn well to race prominently in Stall 4 and has a 4lb swing in the weights with Love Dreams from two runs ago and should go well.
5:20 Chelmsford- Drill 4/1 (0.5pt ew)
Drill showed improved form on his three year old reappearance to finish 3rd at Yarmouth over a mile. He has progressed with each start and showed his best form to date at this course over a mile 20 days ago to finish second. The form of that run has been boosted subsequently with the winner Mutafani following up under a penalty by 4 length on his next start. The third, Team Decision, also won on his next start winning on Sunday and getting the better of an odds on favourite that day.
Those form boosts show the novice race was of good standard and Drill can hopefully use his course and AW experience to defeat his rivals who have displayed good form so far on turf. Luca Cumani has booked Ryan Moore for the ride so a big run can be expected and he looks worth backing each way in an open race.
