It's Chelmsford's biggest day of the season on Sunday, with the Listed Queen Charlotte Fillies' Stakes the feature at the Essex track and Racing Post tipster Graeme Rodway marks your card.
The Mick Appleby-trained four-year-old has won seven of his 13 starts on the all-weather and he looked as good as ever when scoring over a mile at this track a couple of weeks ago.
War In Heaven showed plenty of speed for one who had been running over further and was able to take a prominent position before keeping on strongly to hold off Arthur’s Realm by a short head.
The front two came three-and-a-quarter lengths clear of the remainder of the field.
The selection has been raised 4lb in the weights, but might be suited by another drop in trip to 7f as he definitely isn’t short of speed and should be capable of taking up his customary prominent position.
His stamina from further might come into play from there and he is a good bet to follow up.
The feature Champagne Collet Queen Charlotte Fillies’ Stakes (3.55) looks like a hot contest, but WHITE MOONLIGHT showed she is up to this level last time and might be able to outclass them.
That rival had previously finished second behind the classy Azure Blue, who went on to land the Duke of York.
Third-placed Lady Onyx ran well in another Listed event at Carlisle last week and the front three pulled four and a quarter lengths clear of the remainder in a good time for the grade.
Saeed bin Suroor has a good record at Chelmsford and White Moonlight can enhance it.
Not many jockeys are riding better than Neil Callan and the former Hong Kong-based jockey can land another win in the Happy Birthday Linda Handicap (4.30) on CAPTAIN WENTWORTH.
Callan will need to use all of his skill to overcome a wide draw in stall 11, but Captain Wentworth is well handicapped if he can do so, having gone up just 2lb for his last run here.
The three-year-old was beaten just a neck in second on that occasion and the front two pulled clear of the third in a good time for the low grade.
That is the second time in as many starts that Captain Wentworth has run well on the all-weather and he appears to be ready to strike.
This doesn’t look like a strong race for the Class 6 grade and my selection is unexposed in comparison to several of these older rivals. He should go close provided the draw isn’t an issue.
