CHLOE’S IMAGE (Chelmsford, nap, 9.20) won in eye-catching style on Saturday and it is no surprise that she makes a rapid reappearance on Monday.
It's far from easy to win a big-field one-mile Kempton handicap from stall 1, with only five horses from a sample of 152 (3.3% strike-rate) having pulled it off in fields of 12+ runners since the start of 2012 (in fields of 13+ runners, stall 1 is 0-54). Generally speaking, those drawn on the inside get shuffled back and have to come round the entire field to get a run or, if they're front-runners, are forced to go too fast in the early stages.
