Here are the top tips for this evening's race meet at Chelmsford City Racecourse, courtesy of Betfair.

5.50pm - The 17:50 is part of the “Road To Kentucky” series with John & Thady Gosden’s FUNDAMENTAL topping the betting at 5/4. It’s a short price but he could have a fitness edge on his main rival and he goes into the acca.

He ran well in a soft ground event at Salisbury during the turf season but he was ultra-impressive last time at Chelmsford – winning by over 5L from the front with a dominant display.

The surface suited and the step up to 1m today will be a distance he’ll relish.

7.50pm - For a horse operating at a lowly level, EXPERT OPINION showed ability when trained by Andrew Balding and he starts tonight for the first time with Henry Spiller.

He ran in 0-75 company at Newcastle and subsequently travelled like a dream at Lingfield when finishing second – and he was matched at 1.17 in-play. So granted a pace to run at from his wide draw he should travel well again.

It’s a bit of a flyer at 25/1 on the Sportsbook, but he is clearly a bit tricky in a finish.
