Sweetspots: Convincing case to be made for Watson's charge
Elysees is 2lb ahead of the handicapper after an easy success at Sandown last week and he should be feared in the 4.45 at Chelmsford. Trainer Alan King is four from nine with winners turning out within a week.
Convinced (8.25, Lingfield) has it all to do on his handicap debut at first glance, but Archie Watson has a 33 per cent strike-rate when running horses in blinkers for the first time. He also has a 40 per cent strike-rate when putting up Oisin Murphy at the course.
Tom Dascombe often enjoys a debutant winner at Ripon – he is four from 11 at the track – so Barristan The Bold can go well in the 2.10.
