Chelmsford Stakes 2021 Tips

Chelmsford Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Shared Ambition

This gelding carried 60.5kg to victory over the Randwick mile back in February, 7.5kg more than Mount Popa who won his next two and booked a Caulfield Cup berth in the process. 

While Shared Ambition isn't quite the genuine Group One galloper that he was seemingly on the path to being, he's certainly capable enough at this level, albeit this is a very open event.

With tactical versatility, Kerrin McEvoy can roll across from gate 9 and camping just behind the pace, will look to make his move just as the sprint goes on.


Chelmsford Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - She's Ideel

She was was the run of the Winx Stakes, a mare that produced good closing splits and the fastest last 600m of that Group One when placing behind Mo'unga and Verry Elleegant.

That's certainly the right form references for this Group Two, remaining at WFA conditions and steps up to 1600m now, a trip she's won two from three attempts over.

If there was genuine intent here, she's the one to beat, but will they just poke along now until the Metropolitan? Or having not saluted since last October, does she need a confidence boosting win?


Chelmsford Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Order Again

This Chris Waller-trained veteran has been racing consistently over a spaced-out campaign and is one of the very few fit runners in this Chelmsford Stakes line-up. 

Order Again was arguably the best thing beaten this year in the Scone Cup back in May, but bounced back three starts later to record a Listed scalp over the 1500m at Rosehill.

A $5 chance at Kembla Grange on August 14 in the Spring Preview, he simply just never got a look at them there and as a hard fit galloper, is one that could well shorten in the betting if the rain comes.
