Timeform’s three best bets for Sunday 4 July



Timeform pick out the best three bets at Chelmsford on Sunday.

“…she will not need to take a big step forward to win this…”

Timeform on Shadow Angel

Arousing – 14:17 Chelmsford

Arousing is a well-bred filly – she is a close relation to multiple Group 1 winner One Master – and she made a successful debut on her only start last season. She had to settle for second on her return at Windsor in May, but that was a hugely encouraging effort as she forced a smart prospect to work hard. Arousing wasn’t impressive at Lingfield last month, but she is better judged on the promise of her Windsor effort and she goes handicapping from a generous-looking opening mark.

Double Or Bubble – 15:27 Chelmsford

Double Or Bubble failed to meet expectations in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at Royal Ascot, but she was unsuited by the step up to a mile and she will benefit from the return to seven furlongs. Double Or Bubble easily won a seven-furlong handicap at Newmarket on her return in April, completing the hat-trick, and she looks well up to making an impact at this listed level.

Shadow Angel – 16:02 Chelmsford

Shadow Angel went close on her handicap debut here last month and she will not need to take a big step forward to win this. Shadow Angel was beaten by less than a length in that seven-furlong affair, and the way she stuck to her task suggests that the step up to a mile will be in her favour. She has been left on the same mark and can gain compensation.
