The Game Of Life just held on to win at Chelmsford earlier this week and is penalised 5lb. IN THE RED landed a gamble to end a long losing run when scoring over track and trip in March and is upped 5lb. But he was winning off much higher marks last year and can go in again having rediscovered his form. Treble Clef wasn’t beaten far in third here last time and is preferred to stablemate Fuwairt while Mrs Benson also has a shout on her close-up third over course and distance given the winner has subsequently gone in again.
