Chelmsford Tip: Emirates Currency
Plenty of positives to take from Wolverhampton debut. Slowly into stride from wide draw but joint second fastest closer. Recorded fair time given pedestrian early gallop. Better drawn in stall 2.
Desert Peace will be all the rage in the 5.00 Chelmsford but in opposition I rate Emirates Currency a big danger. He was understandably green on debut at Wolverhampton but there were plenty of positives. He was only beaten 2.5 lengths, a decent effort from a wide draw after a slow start. Poorly position in a slowly run race, he clocked a good 23.11s closing sectional, the joint second fastest of the race.
This looked like a horse learning on the job and learning quickly. If he builds on that experience he should be winning a little race before the year is out. He has the better of the draw in stall 2 (Desert Peace is drawn in 8) and is the value bet.
