Take A Chance On Red At Chelmsford

Bowie ran a decent race at his beloved Market Rasen earlier, but he pulled hard in the early stages and he didn’t get home. He actually travelled well for a long way, but when push came to shove he found little. Tomorrow’s 16/1 selection goes at Chelmsford in the opener, and I think Socialites Red looks a crazy price on her return to Chelmsford.

Scott Dixon has plenty of well handicapped horses.

This 4yo filly is trained by Scott Dixon, and his yard has been struggling for winners. However, he had a couple run well at Southwell last week, and his string could be about to turn the corner. He has a lot of nicely handicapped horses right now, and Socialites Red fits into that category.

This 4yo filly has run twice at Chelmsford, and she ran a lovely race on her first visit back in April. She was beaten just over 4L in a class 4 (6f) off 71, a cracking effort in the context of today’s race. It was no surprise to see her well backed on her return here off 9lb lower in a class 6 (5f) back in October, but she was hampered at a crucial stage and could only manage 7th.

She was given a couple of months off after that run and she had a couple of outings at Southwell and Wolverhampton earlier this month. The latter run off 61 was decent, beaten just over 2L, and she has been dropped to a career low mark of 59.

She is now 12lb lower than for that class 4 6f run last April, and she has landed a decent draw in stall 2. If Socialites Red gets away well she can make a bold bid for Dale Swift and, at odds of 16/1, she is worth backing each way in a wide open looking race.
