Chelmsford Racing Tips: Triggered to hit the target

Horse racing at Chelmsford
Action comes from Chelmsford on Thursday

Timeform's Nic Doggett highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Chelmsford on Thursday.

  • A Chelmsford Nap and Next Best from Timeform

  • Chelmsford Nap - 14:35 - Back Triggered

    Course and distance winner Triggered was noted doing good late work when third (unfancied in the betting) behind a thriving sort at Kempton eight days ago. With his rider taking off a handy 5 lb now back out of an apprentice riders' race, he could be the way to go.

    Trainer Mark Loughnane has been in good form over the past fortnight, sending out three winners from his last 10 runners at the time of writing, and Triggered is taken to add an eighth career success.

    Chelmsford Next Best - 18:00 - Back Thank The Lord

    Thank The Lord needs to put a lesser effort behind him but he had been in good form prior and goes particularly well at this track, with his runs at the Essex venue including two victories, most recently in December.

    That win came from a mark of 57, so Thank The Lord does need to step up again, but he did run well off 64 later that month so his mark looks feasible.

    There isn't much pace in the line-up, so if he is able to master Bora Bora from a good draw in stall three, then he could prove hard to peg back.
