LORD LOOKS FOR LOVE

19:00 Chelmsford


Great Hunter is related to some smart performers, including group scorer Lazuli. Connections are in relatively good form at the moment. He’s unexposed which could be a positive. However, he’s the trainer’s second string and his half-siblings preferred shorter distances, so it’s interesting that he races over seven furlongs. The market seems divided with him, which isn’t surprising, so I think he might be best left watched on his debut.


Sunray Major is a half-brother to the excellent Kingman and won a very competitive Newmarket maiden on his debut, of which bore many subsequent winners including My Oberon and Ilaraab. He wasn’t at his best on his next start and has subsequently been off the track for than a year. Frankie Dettori makes the trip to Chelmsford for just the one ride. However, the long absence is a concern and the drop back to a fast seven furlongs is a question mark. Moreover, he hasn’t raced on the All-Weather surface before, which is another question. He seems a strong but yet opposable favourite.


Lord Lovelace was rather impressive on debut when overcoming a wide draw, and coming wide throughout the race, to quicken up nicely and win. That was on the All-Weather, over seven furlongs at Kempton. He’s bred to race over seven furlongs, which most of his siblings did. Moreover, he gets 3 lbs off Sunray Major, which is a bonus. He looked to know what he needed to do at Kempton and could be the one to shock the favourite.
