Free horse racing selections for Thursday May 10

Racing

Anita Chambers has a tip for every race of the day, including a quality card at Chelmsford this evening.

My Lord And Master has already shown up well in one Derby trial this term and another bold run is expected in the Homeserve Dee Stakes on day two of Chester's May meeting.

William Haggas pitched this Mastercraftsman colt into the Blue Riband Trial at Epsom on his seasonal return and he only just fell short in being beaten a head by Crossed Baton.

The winner made every yard and was always in the driving seat, but My Lord And Master was putting in his best work at the finish to suggest there might be a bit more in the locker.

Any drying of the ground on the Roodee could be counted as a plus and while My Lord And Master needs to find a little bit with a few of these, he appeals as a horse on an upward trajectory right now and should feel the benefit of his Epsom spin.

It will be a huge surprise if Idaho fails to win the Boodles Diamond Ormonde Stakes.

Dropping back to Group Three company after six successive runs at the highest level, Idaho has the perfect opportunity to chalk up his first win since last year's Hardwicke Stakes at Royal Ascot.

While he may not have won in nearly a year, Aidan O'Brien has campaigned Idaho against some of the very best and his luckless run at least means he has no penalty to shoulder.

With upwards of 7lb in hand on each of his rivals, this should be a theoretical penalty kick.

Ghostwatch is worth monitoring in the English Fine Cottons Handicap.

Entered in both the Derby and the Queen's Vase at Royal Ascot, this Dubawi colt cost 2.1million guineas as a yearling and showed plenty of promise as a juvenile.

Beaten just over three lengths on his debut behind Roaring Lion, he was then only narrowly beaten by a nice type in The Revenant next time out.

He picked up an interesting Wolverhampton maiden on his return last month and this race could be a springboard to better things, with last year's runner-up Stradivarius eventually going on to Group One success.

Take The Helm was a winner on All-Weather Finals Day and should again get his head in front in the Bet Exacta At totesport.com Handicap at Chelmsford.

He got a fine ride to win the apprentice heat on the big card at Lingfield and although he has a new rider this time, the presence of James Doyle in the plate is hardly a negative.

Weekender has some high-profile engagements later in the season so it will be a bit disappointing if he is not in the mix in the Bet Scoop6 At totesport.com Conditions Stakes.

Last seen when contesting a Listed race at Ascot in October, Weekender actually came home in front only to lose the race in the stewards' room.

Nevertheless, he looks a progressive young stayer for John Gosden and can improve past a couple of more favourably-treated rivals.
