Best bet for the horse racing at Chelmsford City Thursday 19th November

Chelmsford City host another Thursday evening twilight card with an Arab race kicking the meeting off at 3.30. I think it is a tricky card but there is one worth more than a second look. Spirit Of May loves it in Essex when he makes the trip across country from the yard of Roger Teal in Lambourn. The four-year-old chestnut gelding has three wins and a third to his name from his four visits to date. He is due to run in the 6f Free Streaming Every UK Race Handicap at 5.30. All four of the aforementioned runs have been over track and trip and though this would require a career best off a mark of 87 he has to be on the shortlist. Cieren Fallon rides, which is seen as a positive, as is being drawn in stall two from which he can get a nice prominent plot early. 13-2 looks big to me for a horse that has a lot in his favour. Aberama Gold is the jolly but has to prove he goes on the surface and his second in a Listed heat last time might have flattered him as the frontrunners never came back to the field and more than half the runners never got involved in that race.  

Be lucky
