Handicap: No

Going:

PRIORS BROOK showed a fantastic attitude when edging out subsequent winner Fast And Hot over this trip at Chepstow and a 2lb rise might not be enough to anchor him if arriving in the same, determined mood. Past C&D scorer Graceful James bounced back to form at Kempton and has a solid chance, lining up off the same mark of 75, while Zorba The Greek, who wears cheekpieces for the first time, is unlikely to be far away either.

Paddockwatcher on Graceful James | Tipped at 7/1
Graceful James has now had two runs from a break and showed up well last time out at Kempton, now back at Chelmsford and in good form he is overpriced at 7/1, I rate him a very good EW chance here.
