Tuesday's Chelmsford racing tips: Dukedom can land more glory for The Queen

Planet Sport tipsters are back in Essex for the evening meeting on the Polytrack on Tuesday, June 7. Can they pick out a few winners?

The best way to shake off your Platinum Jubilee hangover is with a trip to Chelmsford, it's definite what the doctor ordered. Although we didn't say what kid of doctor did we?

Maybe our top team of experts can dig out some hot selections, and you can follow their progress by using Planet Sport's live race centre. Here's a quick list of our tips, with some more details on our top three below.

17:00 Chelmsford - Thunder Cat

17:35 Chelmsford - Embla

18:10 Chelmsford - Dukedom

18:45 Chelmsford - Sir Oliver

19:20 Chelmsford - Sharpcliff

19:55 Chelmsford - Buxted Too

20:25 Chelmsford - Jumira Bridge

17:00 Chelmsford - Thunder Cat

Thunder Cat was strong in the market prior to his racecourse debut at York but Andrew Balding's charge was unable to repay his supporters.

The son of Roaring Lion can build on that effort, though, and with the step up in trip likely to aid his chances, he can strike.

Indian Dream filled the runner-up berth at Newmarket last month and he features prominently in calculations, along with Prince Nabeel. Of the newcomers, Tribal Master makes the most appeal.

18:10 Chelmsford - Dukedom

The Queen will be keen to see if her horse Dukedom can open his account in the Betsi Maiden Stakes at Chelmsford.

The gelded son of Dubawi is the most experienced horse in the field and chased home some classy operators during his extensive two-year-old campaign.

He also finished second to the highly-regarded Shining Blue on his reappearance at Leicester and Saeed Bin Suroor's charge franked the form on his next outing. The third at Leicester also went close when next seen at Chester and there is plenty to suggest that race could be a good source of winners moving forward.

John and Thady Gosden's string were a little off the boil in the early part of the season and it would be no surprise to see Dukedom take a huge step forward to open his account in Essex.

19:20 Chelmsford - Sharpcliff

Recent course and distance scorer scorer Sharpcliff can complete a four-timer for Derbyshire handler John Mackie in the Racing With Pride Handicap.

Having scored twice over 10 furlongs last summer, the five-year-old returned from a 300-day layoff to bring up a long awaited hat-trick last time and although a 4lb rise makes this tougher, he won with a bit more in hand than the neck winning distance would suggest.
