Take Pride !

Not a great day yesterday with Bogart unable to take advantage of his number 1 stall position in the same way as the winner drawn in stall 2 and the second in stall 3.

Today I'm going with the 7.50 at Chelmsford the Class 4 Handicap over 6f.

Run With Pride looks overpriced at 12/1 given that he is open to improvement on this only his seventh start. He won first time out last season on his late debut as a 4yo before going on to run some good races in defeat against Class 3 opposition.

On his third start, in a Class 3 Handicap at Nottingham off an official rating of 80, he split Joey's Destiny and Tatlisu who are now rated 6lb(OR95) and 14lb(OR96) superior, whilst he has gone up to 84 even though he then went on to finish 3rd of 18, beaten half a length, off a mark of 82 in a very competitive Class 3 Handicap at Doncaster.

You have take his fitness and whether he will act at the track on trust but he must be worth a punt at 12/1.

Over at Newmarket the Abernant is a two horse race in my view between Music Master and Astaire. You have to decide if Music Master's class on his first start of the season can beat Astaire's race fitness.
