Sarsted was backed as if defeat was out of the question at Chelmsford last night (3-1 into even money), but unfortunately he was! Although even had he ran to his best form he probably wouldn’t of beaten the Godolphin horse anyway, as that one just looked different class on the day.
Today’s shortlist consists of…
Musselburgh 2.00 Serenity Now
Musselburgh 3.30 Aristo Du Plessis
Chelmsford 6.10 Famous Kid
Serenity Now won with something to spare at Towcester last time, and providing any rain doesn’t get into the ground, appears to have everything in his favour today, so should prove hard to beat.
Aristo Du Plessis is going the right way and has less on his plate than when winning at Ayr last time, in a race which is cutting up. His best form to date though has been on more galloping tracks than here.
Famous Kid flopped at York last time but has obvious claims on Royal Ascot form in the summer when unlucky in running, and it would be no surprise if he were to return to his best today.
I’ve decided to weigh in with…
Musselburgh 2.00 SERENITY NOW
…as my best of the day. He won well at Towcester last time and merits a 1 pt recommended bet here.
