The best action today is in the Emerald Isle at Clonmel, however the sheer dominance of Gordon Elliott is likely to ruin much betting value.
Instead we will head to the artificials and Chelmsford’s evening meeting.
It is a decade since the flash-in-the-Pam, when the small yard of Pam Sly sent out Speciosa to win the 1000 Guineas.
Sly is back targeting low grade handicaps like the 1925 at Chelmsford tonight.
Her challenger is the lightly raced Zafaranah, a daughter of Breeders Cup Classic winner Ravens Pass, it is no surprise her best runs in a short career have come on the all-weather.
During her initial maiden runs she put up a best effort when a good third at this track. Then, after some ill advised efforts at 10f, the return to this trip at Lingfield saw an excellent closing effort and a narrow defeat.
She gets to run here off the same mark as that narrow last time defeat and looks set for a strong display.
There are some strong opponents, but that is why we are getting a top price. Zafaranah’s smooth travelling style should suit the race and she looks overpriced.
Recommendation: Zafaranah, (1925 Chelmsford), 1pts each way, 10/1 generally available
