Chelmsford Racing Tips: Alfred Cove ready to strike

There is evening racing at Chelmsford on Thursday

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Chelmsford on Thursday.

  • A Chelmsford Nap and Next Best from Timeform

Chelmsford Nap - 18:30 - Back Alfred Cove

Alfred Cove hasn't won for nearly a year, but he arrives in good form having found only one rival too strong on his last two starts, and he was well backed at Wolverhampton on his latest start in March.

He didn't get the best of starts that day, but he was rushed up to soon be prominent, and he split two next-time-out winners, so the form has a strong look to it. He is still 3 lb below his last winning mark and seems sure to launch another bold bid.

Chelmsford Next Best - 19:30 - Back Wannabe Brave

Wannabe Brave didn't look a natural on his hurdling debut in March, but he was strong in the betting returned to the Flat at Wolverhampton 12 days ago, and duly landed good support, taking advantage of a drop in grade and reduced mark to record his second success in this sphere.

He kept on strongly in the closing stages on that occasion and a subsequent 4 lb rise leaves him on a good mark based on the pick of his efforts, so he's expected to go well again
