RACE PREVIEWS & TIPS (THURSDAY)

19:40 Chelmsford Ryan Moore rarely rides for trainer David O’Meara so on paper alone it’s an eye-catching jockey booking to say the least. Six year old That Is The Spirit has only tackled an artificial surface once in his career and although he finished down the field that was in a much more competitive race than this. The O’Meara yard are flying with five winners out of twenty runners recently and they look to have a great chance with a horse who’s got a 100% strike rate in this grade. Of the rivals you can’t discount previous course and distance winner Outer Space who’s been mightily consistent with a win and two second place finishes in his last three starts. Punters should also be wary of the bottom weight Comedy School. This lightly raced three year old has plenty of scope for improvement and represents top connections so shouldn’t be far away. THAT IS THE SPIRIT (WIN)
