Race of the Day - 18:55 Chelmsford
This is a 0-75 handicap over a mile on the all-weather evening card at Chelmsford, and with a field of 15 runners, it is quite a difficult puzzle to solve.
Mick Easterly has a super record here over the past year, with 10 winners from 27 runners (37.04%), giving a level stakes profit of 16.80. He runs Pivotman here today and his record with last time out winners is also very good (23/112 for 13.52 pts).
All of this detail can be found by clicking on the trainer icon below the horses name.
The Instant Expert tab (which is a report that is free to all users for every race on Thursdays) on the place setting highlights two interesting runners for me. Both Exceeding Power and Graceful James show up really well with a either three or four sections of green, and the remainder amber. Graceful James is just a three year old so has plenty of room for improvement, and he put in a useful performance from today's mark last week when finishing a staying on third over the course and distance. At 12/1, he looks a good potential each way play.
Leaders here over this distance have easily the best record, with over 20% of them winning from quite a large sample. They have returned a level stakes profit over the period covered of 59.44, which is excellent going.
With Pleasure, Consulting and Footlight have the highest pace scores so look sure to at least be up with the pace, however, there has been a change of tactics with Pivotman in his last two races where he has gone from being help up, to leading the race. His last race saw him lead virtually the whole way over two furlongs further than this, so I think he will definitely try and make this a real test of stamina by doing the same again.
