Timeform on Zahratty

Timeform pick out their three best bets at Chelmsford on Sunday...

Harry's Bar - 13:30 Chelmsford

Harry's Bar proved better than ever when landing a high-quality handicap over this course and distance last month, looking much better for the step up to seven furlongs, travelling strongly and produced to lead inside the final 200 yards, ridden out for a relatively cosy victory. The race may not have been as competitive as the number of runners suggests, but there's nothing wrong with the form at the top end, and all five of the horses to have run subsequently have improved next time out. Harry's Bar is up 6 lb for that win but he remains unexposed over this trip and may not be done winning just yet.

Sheila - 16:00 Chelmsford

Sheila hasn't exactly set the world alight with her two runs this campaign, but she very much caught the eye when finish strongly for fifth on debut last year, in what has since proved to be a very warm maiden. There have been excuses for her below par efforts this term, short of room at Doncaster on her reappearance and needing the emphasis more on stamina at York last time. She should be seen to much better advantage now stepped back up in trip and is certainly not one to write off.

Zahratty - 16:35 Chelmsford

Zahratty is bred to be smart and has made a good start to her career, shaping with plenty of encouragement when third on debut, and only needing to improve a little on that performance to open her account at Newmarket last time. The step up to ten furlongs looked right up her street on that occasion, keeping up to her work to see out the extra distance well. She remains open to improvement and is taken to follow up under a penalty.
