7.25 Chelmsford 7F Class 2 Handicap (86-100) (Wed 10th May)

After bit of disappointing weekend at Newmarket,with two seconds.On Wednesday we are back on All Weather for interesting class two handicap at Chelmsford .

9 runners declared for 7 furlong class two handicap on poly track at Chelmsford .Not bad looking (86-100 )handicap .The three main contenders look to be That Is The Spirit ,Viscount Barfield &  Mount Tahan .

THAT IS THE SPIRIT :Six-year-old Gelding ,winning 6 out 21 (1 out 2 on All Weather ) Decent front runner on his day .Returned to form last time ,winning class three handicap over C&D at Chelmsford  13 days ago .Up 4lb in the weights,though still fairly handicapped off mark 99.

VISCOUNT BARFIELD : Four-year-old gelding,winning 3 out 13 (1 out 5 on All Weather ) Looked improving sort last season ,winning three times in handicap company .Finished fair 2L fourth of 13, behind That Is The Spirit over C&D ,staying on well from off the pace .Should go well off 1lb lower mark .

MOUNT TAHAN : Five-year-old gelding ,winning 3 out 21 .Consistent sort ,won class 4 handicap at Beverley in August .Seem show improved form in 7 furlong conditions race at Thirsk last time ,when facing stiff task at the weights .Should go well off the same mark ,though not raced on All Weather since June 2015 .

VERDICT : VISCOUNT BARFIELD should go well ,after finishing promising fourth over  C&D last time (stayed on nicely from well off the pace). Can reverse earlier form with That Is The Spirit on 5lb better terms .Odds around 5-1 look solid each-way value .
