Horse Racing tips for Chelmsford, Newcastle, Taunton

Today’s best bet was a comfortable winner at Musselburgh last month before putting in a respectable run at Cheltenham when fifth behind Quel Destin, who is a live Triumph Hurdle contender.

The three-year-old began his racing career with Joseph O’Brien and showed decent form in two outings as a two-year-old. The David Simcock-trained Alacritas may welcome the step up in trip and is the danger.

Consistent MEAD VALE (nb, 1.35) was a gritty course and distance winner last month, and while the five-year-old is now on a 6lb higher mark at the Somerset track, he has 10lb claimer Tom Buckley in the saddle once again.

The Nigel Hawke-trained gelding has little to fear in this average contest. Gwalia can chase him home on his first outing in a handicap, having finished runner-up in three bumpers last term.

Originally a Godolphin incumbent at the Charlie Appleby yard, PURE SHORES (treble, 6.45) has won three times for Ian Williams, including back-to-back victories in October, and can add to her winning total this evening at Chelmsford.

While the four-year-old filly disappointed last time on her first all-weather run, she ran freely that day and may do better with Kieran O’Neill back in the plate. Firmament looks the likely danger in this small field.
