Race of the Day – 19:40 Chelmsford
We start off September with a Race of the Day on the artificial surface at Chelmsford over ten furlongs.
The first thing that stands out for me when looking at the race card, is that one of the outsiders, Royal Reserve, is miles clear on the Speed Ratings with a mark of 94. The next closest is Demonstration on 79.
Quite a few of the trainers and jockeys are in excellent current form, non more so than jockeys Crowley and De Sousa, who are fighting it out for the jockey’s championship.
Instant Expert is free to all on Thursday’s, and when looking at it in relation to this race we can see that Ecureuil has a full line of green, which is exactly what we want to see.
Royal Reserve has three green sections to add to the high speed rating. He is 0-2 over this distance though and hasn’t run at the course before.
The short priced favourite is Athlon, and he also has three out of five green sections which shows up quite well. He is 0-4 on the standard going artificial surface which may be a worry. His previous win was at Kempton, however the going was slow instead of standard.
