Best bet for the horseracing Thursday 1st February 2023

I mentioned at the start of the week that my first involvement this week would likely be at Chelmsford City and that is the case. 

Best bet for the horseracing Chelmsford City 

Cervetto in the opener was one of the planned bets but the chestnut colt is odds-on overnight and I can't be backing him at such short odds. That leaves me with one bet. At 6.20 nine maidens line-up for the 6f for the New Holland Fillies' Novice Stakes. The one I like in here is the Godolphin owned Moonfire. Her pedigree suggests she should get better as she matures, by Blue Point who certainly got better with age she is out of Sand Vixen who although she only ran as a two-year-old many of her offspring have improved with age. A half-sister to a few winners, notably G.1 winner Dream Castle and dual G.2 scorer With The Moonlight she ran green on debut at Wolverhampton over six in November and again failed to settle at Lingfield, upped to seven, in December but still finished second. David Probert get the ride with Buick in Dubai. I have a bit of the 4-1 about this filly having more to offer at three. 

Be lucky
