Horse Racing tips: The 3 best bets for Thursday at Chelmsford & Kempton

The Timeform team pick their Nap, Next Best and Each-way shout for Thursday.

Kempton Races under lights


Nap: Precision Storm – 17:40 Kempton (7)

Precision Storm looked well at home back on an artificial surface when successful in a similar event over Course and Distance last week.

He was well on top at the finish that day on his first try at a mile, and is strongly fancied to follow up under a 6 lb penalty now that Utopian Lad is a non-runner.

Next Best: Amjaady – 18:25 Chelmsford City (7)

Amjaady was beaten only by a nose over this C&D on his return to the all-weather last time, finding only a prolific winner too strong, and looking well suited by the return to a mile and a quarter.

He is one to be interested in from this sort of mark and is worth keeping on the right side for now.

Each-way: My Town Chicago – 20:10 Kempton

My Town Chicago’s below-par performance at Newcastle last time out can be excused as he was ridden far too aggressively, and that run is best overlooked.

He probably remains in form, and the return to a turning track may help his chances in what doesn’t look the strongest race of its type.
