Thoughts on Seneca Chief
Seneca Chief makes a quick return to action this afternoon in the 4.00pm at Chelmsford City. Alistair Rawlinson is on board for the five furlong handicap. The gelding won impressively on Friday at Wolverhampton when he overhauled the entire field, for which he carries a five pound penalty. The six year old has a fairly wide draw in Stall 7.
Not the easiest race to get a handle as a few of these have shown the sort of ability that will be required to win here. Bernie’s Boy is probably a good starting point, is well drawn and can race prominently at a track where it is normally an advantage to do so. Our Man In Havana is more usually seen over six furlong but did run well on his one start over the minimum that it may work out. Monarch Maid would not be without a chance at her best and is probably better suited to this five furlong trip which she tackles for the first time since joining her current trainer
Seneca Chief is owned and was bred by Gary and Lesley Middlebrook. He is by Invincible Spirit, out of Namid mare, Albertine Rose. The gelding will be led up by Ilse Belien and overseen by travelling manager, Shaun Johnson.
