Recommended Bets

Lay Soldier in Action @ 3.65 in the 14:00 at Chelmsford City

Back Lacan each-way @ 7.26/1 in the 15:05 at Chelmsford City

Back Presenting Arms @ 4.67/2 in the 15:45 at Kempton

We start at Chelmsford City where our lay selection runs in the 14:00 1m Nursery. Making his Nursery debut Soldier in Action has drifted from a low of 2.767/4 out to 3.65. The market has instead opted for Tafteesh whose new trainer Simon Crisford has already proved his ability for preparing nursery winners with an impressive 3-6 strike rate. Mark Johnston has made a long trip to bring his runner, Soldier In Action here from North Yorkshire but the market feels this may have been in vain and a lay is the call.


Staying at Chelmsford City for the 15:05 1m Handicap where the relatively unexposed Lacan is on a competitive handicap mark and should improve for his creditable fifth place run here four weeks ago after returning from a break. He has a good record over this course and distance having previously won here off a 1Ib higher mark. Marco Botti and Luke Morris also have a good record when teaming up at this track so all indications point to Lacan running a big race today. With his price strengthening from 12.5 in to 7.26/1 an each-way bet is the call with the market paying 1/4 the odds.


Finally to Kempton for our back of the day in the 15:45 2m Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle where in-form trainer Harry Fry saddles Presenting Arms who has been strongly supported from 7.26/1 in to 4.67/2. Although disappointing when last seen at Huntingdon in December, he previously won two in a row including over course and distance. With a good record of running well fresh and conditions to suit, today should be the day to he gets back to winning ways and the market seems to agree (as does in-form tipster Alan Thompson).
