Palmer excited by regally bred Gododdin as debut run nears

Chelmsford hosts seven exciting races this evening
1 of 1

There are upwards of 7,000 people expected for Chelmsford's richest ever day's racing on Saturday – and not just because Boyzone are playing after racing.

Plenty will be attending for a seven-race card which boasts £200,000 in prize-money, the highlight of which is the £80,000 Betfred Chelmsford City Cup (7.50).

Similar to the fate that befell John Oxx with Wolverhampton's card on Thursday, so popular was the race that Aidan O'Brien's intended runner Cenotaph, was eliminated.

The 16-strong maximum field includes two William Haggas-trained horses in the classy Fastnet Tempest and recent Newbury winner Squats.

The trainer said: "It's great prize-money and it's competitive, as you'd imagine. Squats won well last time but has a wide draw and has gone up in the weights.

Squats: got back to winning ways at Newbury last time

"Fastnet Tempest is a useful horse on his day, he just needs things to drop right for him."

£50,000 for 50th anniversary race

The Betfred 50th Anniversary Conditions Stakes (7.20) has a handsome purse of £50,000 and is a tight six-runner two-year-old contest.

The Mark Johnston-trained pair Ventura Knight and Cape Bunting will be threats to all. 

Westerland: Frankel colt will have his first run on the all-weather

Ventura Knight has been the busier of the pair and is having his eighth start of the year, though even he has been nowhere near as active as the Mick Channon-trained Milton Road, who is having his 14th of the campaign.

John Gosden saddles Frankel colt Westerland, who failed to defy a penalty in a tougher race than this at Sandown last time.

The trainer said: "He's never run on the all-weather but has plenty of experience of it at home and goes there in good shape."

Can Gododdin put one over Godolphin?

Godolphin take on Gododdin in the Golden Mile Novice Stakes (6.50), with Charlie Appleby fielding recent Newmarket third Old Persian against the eyecatchingly-named newcomer by Camelot.

Old Persian made a promising debut on the July course in a race that is working out well and takes on Gododdin, whom Palmer "adores".

A 300,000gns purchase, Gododdin has been doing everything right in his homework in Newmarket, although he is very much a project for 2018, according to his trainer.

Hugo Palmer: 'I adore Gododdin'

Palmer said: "I adore Gododdin. He's by a sire who was unlucky not to win a Triple Crown, and his dam is related to Covert Love so he's plenty going for him.

"He's up to running a nice race first time but he's very much a horse for next year, when he could come into his own over a mile and a quarter-plus, I'd imagine."
