ODDSbibleRacing's Best Bets From Thursday's Action At Chelmsford, Towcester and Wetherby
We had a great day yesterday with the NAP and a whole host of other selections winning.
There are just three meetings on Thursday. Towcester and Wetherby hosts jumps cards, whilst Chelmsford stages an All Weather meeting.
Here are our selections...
Regal to get royal seal of approval at Chelmsford
2:10: Chelmsford - Regal Gait 13/8.
Has run with credit over jumps since winning at this track in October. Looks capable of further improvement off just a 5lb higher mark on the All Weather.
2:40: Chelmsford - Space War 6/1 Each Way.
Ran well behind the progressive London over track and trip last month. Stays this trip well and looks decent value.
3:10: Chelmsford - Pure Shores 2/1.
Godolphin have their horses in great form at the moment and this three-year-old daughter of Dubawi cost 700,000gns. She should improve for her debut run over a shorter trip here in November and looks sure to be suited by the step up in trip. She should run well.
3:40: Chelmsford - Poet's Word 11/10 NAP.
Sir Michael Stoute has a 33% win rate in the last 14 days and this unexposed son of Poet's Voice looks capable of going close here. I was at Epsom, Goodwood and Doncaster on his final three starts last year and I was quite taken with the four-year-old.
He looks sure to be capable of better and is a half-sister to a Group 3 winner (Ursa Major). This 300,000gns purchase was impressive at Goodwood and then ran well at Doncaster. It would be no major surprise if he won first time out and I strongly fancy him to get his head in front.
4:10: Chelmsford - Estrella Eria 9/4.
Won last three in a row and if he is ready to go on his first run since October, there is no reason why he shouldn't be able to win again.
5:10: Chelmsford - Son Of The Stars 2/1.
8/1 winner on debut when readily coming clear by three and a quarter lengths. The third that day won at Nottingham yesterday and he looks capable of winning again.
Today the day at Towcester
2:50: Towcester - Garrahalish 11/10.
Has been given time off since running in a decent event at Cheltenham in October. The ground should suit and he looks capable of winning this competitive three runner event.
3:20: Towcester - Beyond Measure 1/2.
Would not have to improve much to land this event based on his hurdles form and he is taken to get his head in front here.
3:50: Towcester - Today Please 11/10.
Decisive winner over hurdles last time and if he takes to chasing, he should take a lot of beating in what looks a weak race.
4:20: Towcester - Yorgonnahearmeroar 6/5.
Second to a smart horse at Chepstow last time and that looks the best form on offer.
5:20: Towcester - Sliding Doors 5/4.
Placed in both starts at Musselburgh and Fontwell and should be able to finally break the maiden tag in this event.
Springsprong to be master at Wetherby
2:30: Wetherby - Master Springsprong 11/8.
Pretty disappointing over fences last time but reverting back to hurdles, he should be capable of winning this seller.
3:30: Wetherby - Dominada 10/3.
Well beaten in County Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival, but previously a good second at Musselburgh. This is an open race but he still looks on the upgrade.
4:30: Wetherby - For Instance 8/11.
He has the best form in the book and should be capable of winning this after a break.
5:00: Wetherby - Pikarnia 11/2 Each Way.
Won well over hurdles at Sedgefield last time and off a 7lb higher mark, he could win again in this competitive event.
4:40: Chelmsford - Mighty Zip 7/1 Each Way.
Gave us a lovely winner when making all over six furlongs here last time. I still think he is capable of winning again as he does look progressive. Dropping down to five furlongs might actually suit him more as well and he has a good young jockey on board.
2:20: Towcester - Lambeau Field 11/4.
Beaten over 59 lengths by Defi Du Seuil in November before being well beaten by Master Blueyes at Ludlow last time. They were tough races and this is a sizeable drop in class. I see no reason based on that form despite being out of the frame that he cannot take a race of this calibre here
30/1 Win Acca
2:10: Chelmsford - Regal Gait
2:30: Wetherby - Master Springsprong
3:20: Towcester - Beyond Measure
3:40: Chelmsford - Poet's Word
4:30: Wetherby - For Instance
