7:00 Chelmsford Racing Tips (8th February)

Chelmsford Racing Tips
7.00 Chelmsford (Div 1) 

Not any known front runners in this field of 11 and a poor race overall, I've got negatives against 6 of them, Compton Prince hasn't got any recent course form but a time from 2016 would see it make the frame, Good Business could also make the frame on a time it recorded this year as could Drop Kick Murphi (as long as the pace isn't too fast and saps its stamina) but I've got MULTI QUEST 25/1 as my top rated and this one usually likes to track the leaders and then stay on the stronger at the finish and at the price i have to go with an each way wager. 

NR: Multi Quest

7.30 Chelmsford (Div 2) 

The race didn't split very well with 4 possible pace setters in this division, Malaysian Boleh did a time in 2016 that would see it winning this race but its not been anywhere near that form since then but its time from 2017 would still see it make the frame, Billyoakes is my 3rd top rated so could make the frame if others falter, in 2nd spot I've got Black Truffle it doesn't win very often nowadays but can still make the frame here but top of the heap is FIKHAAR 15/2 who is a possible pace setter and if it gets to the front ought to prove hard to catch and  I'm hoping it can lead from start to finish and the trainer has a 21% win rate here with his older horses and the jockey wins 17% of the time on those older horses which I'm hoping points to the connections expecting their horse to perform very well here. 

Fikhaar 12/1 2nd 

8.00 Chelmsford - 

A poor race in class 2 terms where I've got negatives against 4 of the 9 runners and then struggle to split the remaining 5, Kasbah comes out on top but not for the first time lately and has run well but without winning, Human Nature, Shamshon and Eljaddaaf are not far behind my top 2 and could all compete for a place but NAUTICAL HAVEN 11/2 my 2nd top rated could set the pace here and if you then take off the 5lbs the apprentice claims it moves it to top spot, the trainer has a good 21% win rate with its older horses and the jockey is 2-7 for this stable so everything points to a big run and it can lead from start to finish to register the win.

Nautical Haven 11/2 3rd
