Chester Day 3 Preview

May 9, 2014

Another 2 units profit yesterday makes it 4 in total over the 2 days so far. Its been magical racing and Wednesday is the best fields I have seen at Chester in 10 years. Really enjoyed it so far. However today is another proposition and challenge and with the changing ground a tough one. Hopefully we have found a way in across the card and we can power on to more profits

1.45 Handicap

A tough starter, there are some well handicapped horses here who, if they come back to form could bolt up. For me C&D form and draw are vital and although not in startling form at present I want to be with Big Johnny De. 1 units e/w @ 7/1 Sportingbet

2.15 Betfair Dee Stakes

The defection pf Sloane Avenue doesn’t make it any easier but I am going to put aside the recent bad run of Bow Creek and go with a horse that I think will like the ground ,where a number of others wont and a horse who is proven at a high level. He also beat Barley Mow recently who then came out an won in gritty style last weekend  1 unit e/w @ 5/1 Bet 365

2.45 Boodles Ormonde

Sadly Mt Athos has come out of the race. However there are still 4 good horses and I love Brown Panther. I know the stable know when he is right and they are backing him this morning. He also likes small fields so its ideal.  Brown Panther 2 units win @ 13/8 Sportingbet

3.15 Crabbies Handicap

Tight contest. Again could be a two horse race between See the Sun and Blithe Spirit. I will opt for the C&D form of Eric Alstons charge – 2 units e/w @ 100/30 with Sportingbet

3.50 Betfair Handicap

Tough contest, lots of pace and lots of well handciapped horses on old form. Verse of Love will be popular and will try to make it. Im siding with another C&D horse, drawn well, King of Eden to make a double for Eric Alston. 1 unit e/w @ 7/1 Sportingbet

4.25 Merseyrail Maiden

Destinys Kitten could run a big one and so could the Queen’s horse. Polar Eyes is in great form but I’m siding with Sighora for a trainer in good form and very talented and a Jockey on the score sheet already this week Sighora 2 units e/w @ 5/2 Bet 365

5.00 LDF Handicap

Tough form lines in the last to read, Running Deer will be all the rage. I fancy Ultimate, a talented Chaser who won off 70 back in Oct and will bring guts and strength to a race where you will need both in spades. He also has talented apprentice Megan Carberry up today – 1 unit e/w Ultimate @ 7/1 Sportingbet
