LULU STANDFORD, twice successful on Golden Bird, teams up for the first time with Golden Amber today in the 7.25 at Chelmsford and her five pounds claim could help the Holy Roman Emperor mare go close.
Although the 6yo has only won over 6f, she has form over seven and is well handicapped. Having run well last time at the Essex track over 6f when staying on and well drawn today in three of nine, she could reward each-way backers at 9/1.
Dean has two other runners at the course, Vaudieu in the 5.55 and Incredible Dream in the 8.55. Jack Duern rides both and they are 100/1 and 125/1 respectively. Both will have easier opportunities in the future.
