There’s plenty of racing action to look forward to on Thursday, with six meetings taking place across the UK and Ireland. Among them is Chelmsford’s six-race all-weather fixture in the evening, which takes place between 18:30 and 21:.00. The polytrack surface is officially described as standard and it should be a competitive fixture.

We've picked out a trio to form our Chelmsford tips - including Noodle Mission who looks capable of further progress as a four-year-old.

Chelmsford Tips

  • 18:30 – Dusk Dame @ 8/1
  • 19:30 – Noodle Mission @ 7/2
  • 21:00 – Carvalluccio @ 3/1

18:30 – Dusk Dame @ 8/1

Zariela had some fair form as a juvenile, despite failing to get off the mark last season. She should improve for her latest run and is likely to be popular in the betting, alongside Amy Murphy’s Miss Sunset Strip who was narrowly denied over course and distance recently.

It’s Alice Haynes’ filly DUSK DAME that grabs our attention here. She showed little on debut over course and distance back in November and was a well beaten eighth. A much different story at Kempton last time out, she took a big step forward to finish fourth in a fair maiden.

The daughter of Twilight Son went off at a huge price that day and it’s fair to say that she’ll be considerably shorter this time around. She shaped as if she would improve for the run and is likely to be much stronger at the finish here if doing so.

This certainly isn’t the deepest maiden you’re ever likely to see and it presents a cracking opportunity to get off the mark. Even if today isn’t the day, she should be winning races soon and may be one for handicaps further down the line

19:30 – Noodle Mission @ 7/2

This is a competitive 7f handicap and there’s not much between the likely market principles here. Hollie Doyle is on board Mr Squires, who was an impressive winner in a lower grade at Southwell last time out. Roger Fell’s gelding looks worth taking on however and NOODLE MISSION could be the one to side with.

He recently switched stables and was a narrow third on debut for Edward Smyth-Osborne over course and distance last month. There was plenty to like about that run as he was a tad keen throughout and didn’t get off to the sharpest of starts.

That eye-catching display was more than backed up when he got the better of Sandy Paradise at Wolverhampton on his next run. Once again a little on the keen side, that didn’t prevent him from keeping on strongly at the line.

A 2lb rise seems pretty fair for that three-quarters-of-a-length victory and he looks more than capable of progressing further as a four-year-old.

21:00 – Carvalluccio @ 3/1

Isle Of Sark is likely to be well supported once again but he appears to be running out of chances and Alice Haynes’ CAVALLUCCIO gets the nod. The five-year-old has an above average course record, with three wins and four placed efforts in 10 starts at Chelmsford.

Those three wins equate to 75 percent of his total career victories and they’ve all come over 1m2f. With that in mind, his last couple of placed efforts over a mile at Kempton and Southwell were very respectable runs.

The return to 1m2f will surely be in his favour and he should run another big race at his home away from home.
