I had a quick canter through the race card for Chelmsford for Thursday 23rd March 2017 and there are two handicaps with horses running that could be an interesting win or each way double.
In the 1820 (British time) there are 15 definite runners. The cards this evening showed that King’s Julien is doubtful.
My choice in this race is ZEBEDEE’S GIRL priced at 6/1 at the time of writing. She has had progressive form this campaign showing 6th of 9 over 6 furlongs at this course nad most recently on 8th March was 4th of 12 over 1 mile 2 furlongs. In this race she was held up at the back then claimed 3rd on the run in only to be overtaken into 4th by less than a length.If backing each way this race only pays out on the first three places at 25%.
In the 1950 there is a wide spread of handicap weights of 12 pounds. Because INTENSICAL is being ridden by a claimer who is allowed 7 pounds off any weight the handicapper allocates he is well down on the weights and consequently is a strongly fancied favourite priced at 9/4. If backing each way this race only pays out on the first two places at 25% of the SP’s.
I like a punt but I also like to build in a bit of safety so I would be going for an each double with these two selections but for those of you with the stronger constitution for these things a win double could reap handsome rewards.
