Excellent George is The Messenger best bet at Chelmsford

Excellent George is the best bet on a quiet Saturday of racing for The Messenger.


Chelmsford 7.15: Excellent George

Two from two over 6f at Chelmsford this winter, Excellent George has excellent claims of following up tonight at the track.

The gelding representing the in-form Stuart Williams team is perfectly suited to this sharp 6f as he lacks the pace over the minimum trip and finds stiffer 6f tracks too much of a test of stamina. Around here though he can race handily, use his tactical pace to get ahead turning for home and last out to the line.

He is up 3lbs for a win here last month, but connections have offset that by putting up an experienced 7lb claimer in Milly Naseb. The horse is a straight forward enough ride so I am hoping for more of the same tonight from the 6yo.

Advised bet:

1pt win – Excellent George – 7.15 Chelmsford at 6/2 with Paddy Power and 10bet
