Chelmsford: Toplight

Disadvantaged by the widest draw on each of last two starts and has run very well under the circumstances. Clocked fastest closing sectionals in both contests and better draw this evening.

Toplight’s 5f record on the all-weather (excluding Southwell) reads: 32138412 with that eighth place largely down to being carried wide and losing a shoe.

It’s a pretty impressive record for a moderate horse especially given he’s started is stalls 10/10 and 7/7 on his last two starts. Despite his chances being hampered by the draw he’s ran the fastest closing sectional in both of those races. A second place behind Storm Melody also reads very well, given the winner is about as solid as a class 6 handicapper gets.

La Roca Del Fuego has been flattered by getting the run of the race. This is stronger and from a better draw Toplight can pick-off the favourite in the home straight.
