Race of the Day - 18:25 Chelmsford
A very nice looking seven furlong handicap for today's Race of the Day, with prize money of over 12k for the winner of this 0-105 event.
Chookie Royale is comfortably the top rated in this field, and he won a strong conditions race last time out at Kempton on the artificial surface. Chookie Royale is trained by Keith Dalgleish, and looking some of his stats (click the trainer icon below the horses name) we can see that he has an excellent record with last time out winners. From 167 runners he has an almost 24% strike rate for a level stakes profit of 26.56.
Loyalty is at the lower end of the handicap, however it is interesting to note that he is a mile clear on the Speed Ratings.
On the Instant Expert tab (which is free to all users for every race on a Thursday), Volunteer Point stands right out. She has a full line of green over a large sample of races, so it appears that she definitely has conditions in her favour. She is also eight pounds lower than her previous winning mark, so looks nicely treated against her rivals. Since her last win (at Lingfield in a Conditions Stakes in March) she has run in five Listed races, a Group 3 and a Group 2. Therefore she is taking a drop in class today, and if in form, I think she will take all the beating.
From the Pace tab it is clear that leaders and prominently ridden horses have the best record, with both showing a positive level stakes profit.
Chookie Royale and That Is The Spirit are definite front runners, and along with Baddilini and Right Touch they look like they will be contesting the early lead. They are also all drawn in stall nine or higher, so it looks certain that the pace is going to come from the high numbers.
Although Volunteer Point has a very low pace score, when she was winning races earlier on in the year, she usually raced prominently. Being drawn in stall ten means she will be on the right side of the pace, and able to track the trailblazers before being in a position to make her challenge.
