LORD BRYAN (2.15 Ludlow)
You’re never quite sure what you’ll get from this nine-year-old but he’s definitely up to hitting the frame at this level.
He went close at Uttoxeter two runs ago on the back of another solid run at Newton Abbot.
He’s long overdue a win but should be on the premises in an open race.
SIGURD (3.07 Sedgefield)
The booking of champion jockey Brian Hughes takes the eye as this eight-year-old returns from eight months off.
He has dropped to just 1lb higher than his win at Wetherby last Boxing Day.
The stamina test at Sedgefield should be right up his street and there are question marks over some of the market leaders.
SOCIAL CITY (7.30 Chelmsford) is a big price if finding anything like his best form.
He has had some help from the handicapper after a couple of modest runs. But he has plenty of decent outings on his CV with his best efforts on the all-weather.
This trip is ideal and this doesn’t look the strongest race, even for a class six contest at Chelmsford.
Aside from these, SunSport resident tipster Templegate has picked a horse in each race today.

Decent Flat performer who ran well when winning two runs ago.

Fit and well weighted to win this tricky contest.
2.32 African Dance
Showed lots of promise when third at Ludlow last time out.

Has improved with every run and should be right there again.
