Chelmsford Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

The battle of the guns. Think It Over is all class and will take beating in a race like this. Duais was huge on returning and is suited to these. Montefilia is going to be hard to beat from the kind draw. Mo’unga can be hard to catch but has a huge turn of foot when things fall into place. A few of these are first up so the market is likely to play a big role in this race.

Chelmsford Stakes 2023 Runner by Runner

1. Think It Over (4)

All class. Looks a huge chance in this despite going for a wild drift. Maps well and Nash is a huge tick ( ride of the century in the past aboard )

2. Mo’unga (2)

Hard to catch but can pounce late if things fall into place. Maps well and gets its chance in this.

3. Knights Order (6)

Can lead them up and give a bold sight. Place chance at best.

4. Bold Mac (1)

Prefer others.

5. Hoo Ya Mal (12)

Prefer others.

6. Navajo Peak (8)

Can’t have.

7. Lindermann (7)

Fitter for the run and love the booking of Gibbons. Maps for a tow into the race and has the quality to shock these.

8. Major Beel (10)

Can land on the speed and give a bold sight. Leaning to others with better form.

9. Manzoice (5)

Can’t have.

10. Duais (9)

Looked back on track last run hitting the line super. Slightly awkward draw but has always shown huge potential and has been overlooked by markets. Hard to beat and $11.00 is a steal.

11. Montefilia (3)

Racing well. Good return last start and big yes out in trip. Jmac is an ideal booking and has been smacked in early markets. Live chance.

12. Hinged (11)

Brilliant last start and has arguably the form of this lot. Keep an eye on the market and only little query is the record at the track (1-2-2) from 11 goes.
