Top tipster Andrew Mount heads to Chelmsford’s evening card for three bets on Thursday
TRANSCRIPT – 6.00 Chelmsford
TRANSCRIPT was an eyecatcher over trip and track on her recent debut for Jane Chapple-Hyam, racing keenly in the first-time hood and running wide off the final bend from a tricky stall 9 draw. She’s in stall 1 tonight and her trainer does well with recent acquisitions who are having their second start for the yard, scoring with five of the 31 qualifiers since 2017 for a profit of £48.08 to a £1 level stake at SP.
OLD NEWS – 7.00 Chelmsford
OLD NEWS had a useful stall 3 draw in a7f Class 5 handicap here on September 10th but patient tactics were no help and he ended up wide of the rail from an early stage. He kept on into third, about three-quarters of a length behind the patiently-ridden Colonel Whitehead who came out to win on turf at Lingfield 48 hours later. He’s well drawn in stall 2 and the booking of William Buick catches the eye.
BROUGHTONS COMPASS – 8.00 Chelmsford
There’s not a huge amount of early pace in this 6f handicap, with Princess Mayson the likeliest leader. However, her sire has a poor record at this venue and I’d rather side with BROUGHTONS COMPASS in the first-time blinkers. He’s a very modest maiden but has performed with credit in his two course starts over 1m or shorter, doing best of the closers in a 10-1 third (1m) before a close-up fifth over 7f.
