There isn’t much that I really like today, but in the 1m handicap at Chelmsford this evening (9.05) BADENSCOTH might be worth giving another chance in the hope that a wide passage can be avoided in this smaller field.
He was a commanding winner over this course and distance last July, recording a good time figure, but in each of his three subsequent all-weather starts any chance he had has been spoiled by racing wide.
His prospects here will probably depend on whether his rider is able to avoid going three wide once again, but although he has the highest draw there are only seven runners, and hopefully Pearl Spectre and Glory Awaits will combine to produce a reasonable gallop.
Hugh's Best Bets (scale 1-5 points):
1pt win BADENSCOTH (6-1 bet365, Betfred, Ladbrokes, 11-2 general)
