Eric's Weekly Round Up: Outrage 5/1 & Spirit Of Wedza 6/1



Saturday, 13 October 2018

6:45 Chelmsford Racing Tips (13th October)

CHELMSFORD 6.45 Div-1 

BILLYOAKES 77 SPIRIT OF ZEBEDEE 77 AGUEROO 76 

AGUEROO a hold-up type and has a chance of making the frame or more 

FLORA TRISTAN a 0-12 record is offputting and may need further to shine

BILLYOAKES versatile tactically, draw isn't ideal could make the frame or more 

ZORAWAR may need further and this surface may not be its favourite 

TURANGA LEELA well drawn for a possible pacesetter but maybe not best surface 

JUAN HORSEPOWER likes to track the leaders and joint 4th best on my figures 

CATHEADANS FURY looks as though further would suit it better, my joint 4th rating 

SPIRIT OF ZEBEDEE likes to race prominently and stay on strongly at the finish 

BLISTERING DANCER is 0-24 on the all-weather tracks and may prefer a shorter trip 

SUMMARY: Its close between my top 3 and if BILLYOAKES 6/1 had been drawn better it would have been my sole selection and if it leads here it could win but I will dutch all 3 to cover a hold up horse, AGUEROO 4/1 and one that races prominently without leading, SPIRIT OF ZEBEDEE 7/2, not great prices but possible to dutch for a profit. 

Agueroo 4/1 5th
Spirit Of Zebedee 4/1 8th
Billyoakes 25/1 9th 

CHELMSFORD 7.15 Div-2 

DOLLAR VALUE 75 KODICAT 72 DREAMBOAT ANNIE 66 

DREAMBOAT ANNIE a possible pacesetter but stall 8 isn't ideal 

KODICAT versatile sort who can lead and drawn stall 1 so a good chance here 

DOLLAR VALUE likes to track leaders and top because of 3lb claimer riding 

LETHAL ANGEL a 12 run maiden who looks to need further to show its worth 

JACK NEVISON only slow times over c/d and may want a longer distance to shine 

GULLANDS ROCK slowish time from 2016 and nothing much recently 

ALKASHAAF a 2016 time would make it competitive here but nothing much recently 

DIVINE CALL only slow times recently but a 2016 time would put it top here 

AVENGING RED 0-12 so far and may need further to show improvement 

SUMMARY: The 3 topweights have the best recent times and I would look to dutch them if there's any value but I've also got 2 horses that would enter my calculations if I used their 2016 times and it's very unlikely there will be any value in dutching 5 runners in a 9 runner race.
