TROPICS STILL WELL HANDICAPPED TO GO CLOSE

Tropics

Tropics

TROPICS is certainly not the force of old but he is still well enough handicapped to go close in the eight runner 6f handicap at Chelmsford this evening (7pm).

The former dual July Cup runner-up is now rated 92 and still retains ability to be competitive off that mark.  Robert Winston rides and at 9/2, the horse has each-way claims.

Varsovian is also the mount of Robert Winston in the 7f handicap at 9pm in which just six go to post.  Weak in the market at 9/1, he still has a chance in what is a very trappy-looking contest but is weakness in the market is a little off-putting.
