14:50 Chelmsford – Flourishing (BEST ODDS 9/1 with Betfair)
Flourishing looked very good when winning over this trip of seven furlongs last time out. The fact that she’s only three pounds off being the bottom weight in the field makes me think that she’s well in here compared to her rivals. The market leaders haven’t been as effective on the all-weather as this horse, so that makes me even more keen to take advantage of what I think is a value price. There are eight runners in the field at the time of writing, which makes this a perfect each-way bet at the price as well. I think that Flourishing will surprise a few with this step up in class. Both her trainer and jockey have had good strike rates of late, and I believe she will at least hit the frame in this race.
