Weather is improving all over the country now that spring is at last taking hold. Chelmsford is one racecourse that enjoyed particularly sunny spells on Tuesday 7 April, when seven races were hosted on a Polytrack surface.
The first of the UK horse racing results yesterday saw favourite Thahab win at 1/2 in the 14:20 Maiden Stakes, which is followed up with a win for favourite Oscars Journey at 2/1 in the 2:50 Handicap.
Emirates Skywards managed to break up the wins for favourites by winning at 11/10 in the 15:20 Maiden Stakes. However, that optimism was briefly paused when Watersmeet won as favourite at 4/6 in the 15:50 Handicap.
Normal Equilibrium came good with the first meaningful odds of the day at 6/1 in the 16:20 Handicap, which were then doubled to 12/1 when Little Indian won the 16:50 Handicap. First Dream then finished things at 2/1 by winning the 15:20 Handicap.
