Chelmsford’s NAP: BASCULE | 6:30pm chelmsfordcityracecourse.com Handicap | Dom’s Pick
Richard Hughes’s gelding has either won or placed on three of his five appearances on the all-weather and arrives here in fine fettle with back-to-back wins at Lingfield and Kempton Park, respectively.
He could now be a different proposition over this sort of trip and usual partner George Rooke eases the recent hike in the weights by 3lb.
The unexposed Napper Tandy left a taking impression at Newcastle when last seen back in April, while Liverpool Knight was a good winner last time out and is sure to have a say under a penalty.

If he gets the mile, Archie Watson’s son of Slade Power is off a mark that he won off previously so could be one to keep onside at the prices.
Hollie Doyle is back aboard and the gelding’s record in this sphere is much stronger than on the turf, particularly given his disappointing effort at Haydock Park when last seen in September.
Endured looks a solid favourite under Silvestre de Sousa after his handicap debut fourth at this course last month.
