Chelmsford have a very nice afternoon card on today with the highlight being the Conditions Stakes at 15:35. This is ”The Road to The Kentucky Derby” and carries a £60,000 pool.
It’s not in that race I want a bet though, far bigger value is on offer in the 7f Handicap at 16:40. The King’s Steed under Silvestre De Souza can make a bold bid and will likely be ridden positively at a course that favours it. A nothing showing right-handed at Kempton can be forgotten and the two runs previous at Wolverhampton and here at Chelmsford were much better. Take heed of the jockey booking and back him each-way with William Hill, they are paying an enhanced 4 places at a fifth the odds.
Midnight Vixen goes for the impressive Ben Haslam under Andrew Mullen in the 19:30 Classified Stakes at Newcastle. There is a good word for Midnight Vixen today and when money comes for one of the trainer’s horses, it should be respected. The 2lb drop after a pleasing debut for the new yard seems generous and could be enough to get a first win.
