Timeform UK SmartPlays: Sunday January 24

There is racing at Chelmsford on Sunday
There is racing at Chelmsford on Sunday

Chelmsford provides the only surviving UK racing on Sunday, and Timeform have picked out their three best bets.

"Gorokai has been progressive since he was gelded and switched to the all-weather in December, putting in successive career-best efforts..."

Kyllach Me - Chelmsford 13:10

Kyllach Me took his tapeta record to three from four last time at Wolverhampton under this jockey with a career-best effort, and he should prove very hard to beat in the opener at Chelmsford today if able to run to the same sort of level on polytrack from just 2 lbs higher in the handicap. Mary Ann Bugg was unable to dominate last time and was below form, but with little competition for the lead here, could be the selection's biggest danger under the in-form Josephine Gordon.

Lupo D'Oro - Chelmsford 13:45

Lupo D'Oro is hardly a prolific winner, but he looks to have been found a good opportunity here, and is able to operate from the same mark as when splitting two last-time-out winners in a higher grade than this at Kempton last week. He had been running respectably - over a trip that had seemingly just been stretching his stamina - prior to that effort, and looks set to run well here again kept at this shorter trip. Misu Pete attracted support last time before being pulled out, and could be the biggest danger to the selection.

Gorokai - Chelmsford 14:15

There are a number of last-time-out winners here, but none seem better treated than Gorokai, who is open to improvement, making his handicap debut on Sunday for the in-form David Simcock yard. Gorokai has been progressive since he was gelded and switched to the all-weather in December, putting in successive career-best efforts, which saw him get off the mark in a maiden over this trip at Lingfield last time. Modest lowered the colours of a progressive sort last time at Southwell, and will be a threat to all if able to reproduce that form on this surface.
