Best bet for the horse racing Thursday 7th November

Nice winner on Wednesday, Space Blues is one for your notebook if not already added, and hopefully, I have another that will have us at the pay-out counter on Thursday.

They race at Chelmsford City and the Irish Lotto At Handicap at 6.45 looks the main race in the card. They go over 1m2f. Mushtaq looks to me to be weighted to have a chance here; bottom weight off 8-7 means he gets at least 6lb off the rest. It is hoped the 3yo will also improve for the step-up to this trip. He isn’t ideally drawn but it is hoped he can get a nice pitch out of stall 8 settle into a rhythm and kick on as they turn in to the two-furlong home straight. That tough little cookie Hollie Doyle is doing the steering. At 8-1 overnight, you can play each-way and that is what I have done as that stall 8 is a concern.

Be lucky
