Ryan Moore: Collinsbay can claim first win at Chelmsford

Ryan rides five at Chelmsford on Sunday

Betfair Ambassador Ryan Moore is off to Essex on Sunday afternoon for five rides on the all-weather at Chelmsford. Here are his thoughts about their chances...

15:30 - Global Art

"He has not been running too well by the looks of it... But he has come down another 2lb to a mark of 72, which is very attractive when you look at some of his previous form around here."

Chelmsford

Chance to open his account

13:00 - Collinsbay

I rode him when he was placed on his first three starts, and he looks to have improved again when fifth in a sales race at Doncaster last time. That form makes him the standout here and he will hopefully be up to opening his account on his all-weather debut.

Should be competitive in ideal conditions

13:30 - Oh This Is Us

This is a very tight handicap but he ran well off this mark when second here over 1m last week, and stepping down in trip is not a problem. He has as good a chance as any in here, as conditions will suit and he is back to a mark off which he can be very competitive.

Good opportunity to improve on recent runs

15:30 - Global Art

He has not been running too well by the looks of it, but his Kempton run last time can be excused on account he was drawn wide and was slowly away, so that was his chance over there. But he has come down another 2lb to a mark of 72, which is very attractive when you look at some of his previous form around here. If he can break better and get a decent position from his draw in two, then he has claims, down in grade again to this 0-70 handicap.

Should be able to improve without the blinkers

16:00 - Red For All

He was tried in first-blinkers at Kempton last time but they are discarded after a below-par effort there. His earlier third over this trip at Yarmouth, off a 1lb higher mark than this, would give him a chance, though.

Capable of bouncing back into contention

16:35 - Tanita

She clearly didn't run up to her best behind Zahratty last time. She needs to bounce back from that run, but if she can reproduce her juvenile form, or her Yarmouth third for me in July, then she has a clear chance in this novice.
