Paddy Power TV’s Aoife Corrigan and Carl Monaghan have picked their best bets for every race at Chelmsford on Saturday afternoon as they try and turn a profit for punters.

That means we’ve got nine selections from the bumper meeting, but will you take any of their tips or go your own way?

Check out their chat in the video below:

Aoife: 1.29pm – Excellent George

This a class four six-runner handicap with a couple of previous C&D winners in the line-up. Spirit Of May was a good fourth last time out, not beaten all that far, but I am going to side with EXCELLENT GEORGE. He was one of the C&D winners in the past, and was second only beaten a head when last seen 73 days ago. Also, Stuart Williams horses are going well with a 36 per cent strike rate in the last two weeks.

Aoife: 2.04pm – Sir Hector

This is a 6f handicap with another small field of six, but two of the runners are last time out winners – both at Wolverhampton with Bernies Boy causing a 22/1 upset in the process. But I like the previous C&D winner, which is SIR HECTOR. This horse was behind Bernies Boy the last day – only beaten by half a length in the process – had won two of his three starts prior to that and I think he could get back to winning ways.

Aoife: 2.34pm – Revolutionise

Race 3 is a Class 3 contest over 7f, and the stats will suggest that Mark Johnson 39 per cent and Joe Fanning’s 40 per cent strike rate are the two to follow in this race with Eton College but I am siding with REVOLUTIONISE. This 5 year-old is having its second run following a wind operation and outran his massive price the last day when second only beaten by three lengths. This horse should come on again for that run and I think is the one they need to beat.





Aoife: 3.04pm – Asad

A mile contest with another small field of runners with both Assimilation and Papa Sour having course and distance form in the book. Both will be fancied to go well but I am going to side with ASAD. This 5 year-old’s career has been very much stop-start with only four lifetime starts under three different trainers so far in his short career. Quite incredibly this horse came back from a 600-day absence along with a gelding and wind operation to win on his comeback run by a comfortable three lengths. He should stripe fitter today following that run and should run another massive race.

Carl: 3.40pm – Bad Attitude

BAD ATTITUDE is a really consistent runner and this 4 year-old has not finished outside of the top three in his last five runs, managing to justify favouritism last time out. Comes here seeking a hat-trick and managed to win by a length and a half carrying 9st12lbs last time. The yard don’t have a lot of runners but Luke McJannet did saddle a 10/1 winner at the beginning of the week so that’s another good sign.

Carl: 4.10pm – Supercontango

I will be siding with the Archie Watson-trained 3-year-old SUPERCONTANGO here. Watson has saddled a couple of winners in the last fortnight and has a very competitive record with his 3-year-olds on the all-weather surface in the last five years, with 73 winners and 88 horses placing out of 402 runners.

Carl: 4.45pm- Arnoul of Metz

I am going to go for another Luke McJannet-trained horse here in this one. ARNOUL OF METZ was an impressive 10/1 winner at Wolverhampton last Tuesday. The fact that the trainer is running the horse again so soon is a tip in itself, as there is likely to be some more left up the sleeve despite the rise in the weights. Also, Jockey Laura Pearson has a 7lb claimer and is in form with four winners and a few placed rides in the past couple of weeks.

Carl: 5.15pm – Eyes

I fancy EYES to run a big race here for Jamie Osbourne’s yard. This horse was well backed into 9/2 when running a decent race last time out at Lingfield during the week. The horse finished fifth of 10 runners but was only beaten by a length in total, keeping on well. First time cheekpieces could aid more improvement with this filly, so I just think Eyes has a great chance to be right in the mix here when they head for home.

Carl: 5.45pm – Recall it All

Trainer Ivan Furtado made a great start to 2021 by saddling a treble at Southwell last Monday and he sends out RECALL IT ALL in this 1m2f contest. The 4-year-old has run decently in his last couple of spins and despite being a beaten favourite last time out at Wolverhampton, still ran a respectable race finishing fifth of 12 runners in a division two handicap.
