Big Les will likely prove a popular pick for many given his convincing victory over track and trip late last month, where he forged clear inside the final furlong to win in impressive fashion, however he has to carry a 5lbs penalty for that success and that swings things the way of Black Friday who won this race last year. That was one of three prior course and distance successes and although he is higher in the weights this time around he wasn’t beaten far off this mark last time out and has the aid of 5lbs claimer Andrew Breslin in the saddle this time around.
BLACK FRIDAY (WIN)
Rebel Redemption left a lasting impression when making all for an impressive victory over course and distance last month and is effectively 2lbs well in turned out under a 5lbs penalty here. If the blinkers have the same effect this time around he should be capable of of a quick-fire double, although Lilkian knows his way around Chelmsford having won here three times previously and has been holding his form well over the summer so looks a solid each way alternative.
REBEL REDEMPTION (WIN)
