Slim pickings on a waterlogged afternoon, but we were finally amongst the winners yesterday and we will studiously avoid our bete noir, Wolverhampton, and stick to punter friendly Chelmsford.
The Daily Yankee:
Tilsworth Lukey (1815 Chelmsford), 9/2: Enjoyed the strong pace set by habitual front runner Outlaw Torn two runs ago when just unable to time a finishing effort under a young jockey. Veteran Franny Norton made amends next time, and with Outlaw Torn again in the race things look ideal for a follow up. Favourite The Juggler may improve back at Chelmsford, and is the one to beat, but our pick may still have the edge on fitness and form.
Ourmullion, (1915 Chelmsford), 9/2: loads of money for the hot Godolphin favourite Extra Mile, but she may be short enough now on comeback, and preference is for course specialist Ourmullion who is returning here under De Sousa and could represent a bit of value as the proven quantity against the unknown value of the favourite.
Poets Prince, (1945 Chelmsford), 1/1: is well in here after a gallant recent front running second at this course. This course can work well for pace setters, and in a small field he has everything in his favour. Could be a double for Franny Norton.
Meshardal, (2015 Chelmsford), 16/1: This is an open sprint handicap with pace aplenty likely to come from Related. We like Ruth Carr’s Meshardal, who hopefully won’t be inconvenienced by a flooded yard. He won off this mark last Summer and ran a nice comeback race at Newcastle. Improvement from that and he could spring a surprise.
