On the eve of the third Classic of the season, there’s an all-weather card at Chelmsford to sink your teeth into.

Robert Cowell’s yard has enjoyed a tidy bit of form of late so perhaps his charge Araifjan is the answer in this contest.

He won at the track previously, adding to a second over a slightly longer trip in Essex previously, and he hasn’t been disgraced in a couple of tough handicap’s at Newmarket sandwiched either side.

Off a mark of 76, he looks nicely weighted in this field and Ray Dawson claims 3lbs off the four-year-old’s back.

Power Over Me has been in fine fettle for Robyn Brisland but could be in the grasp of the handicapper, now 32lbs higher than when his winning streak started at this course back in January, while Corinthia Knight trudged home last of the field at Chester last month and has questions to answer.
