Top tipster Andrew Mount has three bets at Chelmsford this evening
Chelmsford expert DESERT FOX prefers to race away from the other runners and tends to struggle when given a low draw, as he usually encounters traffic problems. When drawn in stall seven or higher his record at the Essex venue stands at 113121 (4-6) for a profit of £27.50 to a £1 level stake at SP. Stall nine of nine looks ideal in the 7f Irish Lotto At totesport.com Handicap tonight (6.00).
In the same race I also want a speculative interest in JOHNNY REB who makes his debut for James Ferguson. He was only fifth here on his final start for Charlie Fellowes but clocked a useful time and Showcasing offspring often improve for first-time blinkers, winning 11 of their 60 starts (18.3% strike-rate) for a profit of £61.34 to a £1 level stake at SP. On the all-weather only, the strike-rate increases to 25% (six from 24) for a profit of £36.84.
POLAR CLOUD (7.00 Chelmsford)
Heather Main does well with all-weather runners having their second career start, scoring with six of the 31 qualifiers (19.4% strike-rate) for a profit of £81.83 to a £1 level stake at SP. Plenty of the beaten horses made the frame, often at big prices, and it could be worth siding with POLAR CLOUD in the 1m2f Double Delight Hat-Trick Heaven At totesport.com Novice Stakes (7.00). The four-year-old could never get involved after a slow start on last month’s debut at Lingfield but didn’t shape badly in seventh place and will know more today.
