Timeform pick out their three best bets from Chelmsford on Thursday evening…
“…she posted arguably her most encouraging effort yet when second at Newcastle two weeks ago…”
Timeform on Special Mission
PRINCE OF ROME got back on the up in no uncertain terms when making a winning nursery debut over C&D 23 days ago and, with further improvement in the offing, he can defy a 12 lb hike in the weights to follow up. Sandown scorer Elsaabiqaat and Thegreatestshowman, who should be suited by the drop back to the minimum trip, are feared most.
SPECIAL MISSION is proving expensive to follow, but she posted arguably her most encouraging effort yet when second at Newcastle two weeks ago, stuck in a pocket for some time and unlucky not to get closer to the winner. Well worth a try over this longer trip, she should prove a tough nut to crack if building on that, though Gripper is expected to give her plenty to think about.
RUFUS KING came close to adding a second decent pot here in three starts on Saturday, recording a very good timefigre in the process, and he looks sure to go well again from the same mark. The progressive Restive Spirit is next best ahead of Very Talented, who was last seen when third in the Cambridgeshire two years ago.
