CAPPANANTY CON has been in fine form in recent weeks and can defy a career-high mark of 80 to win the Bet totetrifecta At Handicap at Chelmsford's evening meeting.

The three-year-old has a bit of a mixed profile, having kicked off the year in promising style before slightly going off the boil on a couple of occasions in the summer prior to enjoying a little break.

Dean Ivory's inmate likely needed his first couple of runs back in October but showed significant improvement to hit the frame at Kempton last month before claiming his third career win at Chelmsford last time out.

Cappananty Con won a reasonable handicap two weeks ago, racing prominently before finding plenty in the closing stages to win by three-quarters of a length.

He has been raised 3lb for that success but appears to still have a little in the locker and is definitely one for the shortlist here as today's nap selection under Robert Winston.

WINDS OF FIRE put up no kind of show on his racecourse bow but should be given another chance in the Weatherbys General Stud Book Online EBF Maiden Stakes.

Sent off favourite on his first attempt at Wolverhampton, Charlie Appleby's charge ran very green indeed, racing in spurts before eventually finishing seventh, beaten over 12 lengths.

Adam Kirby takes the reins and Winds Of Fire looks capable of a far better performance with that bit of match practice under his belt.

CRESENDO cost just 3,000 guineas at the autumn sales and he can give Gavin Cromwell an immediate return on his first start in the Betway Stayers Handicap at Southwell.

Previously trained by Jim Bolger, Cresendo has shown glimpses of ability and can make use of the fact he races off his lowest mark for a while with Martin Harley on board.

OVERTOWN EXPRESS kicked off his campaign with an impressive success at Newbury at the start of December and he can follow up in the 188Bet Graduation Chase at Exeter.

He turned what appeared to be a competitive heat into a 10-length procession and his jumping seemed to be pretty sound, despite having looked a bit shaky on occasion previously.

That was a decent effort on his first start since being well beaten in a Grade Two heat back in February and a 9lb hike in the ratings reflects the value of that performance.

WAR SOUND was no match for Brain Power at Kempton last time but should find the toteexacta Novices' Chase at Towcester an easier test.
