FORTIA EACH-WAY CLAIMS AGAINST PRESCOTT HOT POT

Fortia - each-way chance at Chelmsford

Fortia – each-way chance at Chelmsford

FORTIA has an each-way chance at 7/1 today in the 7.45 at Chelmsford although the favourite, Alternate Route has all the hallmarks of an improver for Sir Mark Prescott.

The mount of champion jockey elect, Silvestre De Sousa, the Dean  Ivory-trained daughter of Nathaniel has only had four runs and last time out showed some promise, when third, beaten five and a half lengths at Yarmouth over 1m3 1/2 furlongs.

Today, she tackles two miles and the extra distance may eke out some improvement.  Whether she can get past Alternate Route or second favourite, Snowy Winter, both of whom are well in, is a moot point!
