Chester Tips: Ballesteros

1pt Ballesteros to win 9/4* with Betfred Place Bet

I was mightily impressed by Ballesteros’s win at Sandown last time out and even at short odds, he looks good value in the 3.05 Chester.

A winner two weeks ago, he was poorly drawn in stall 6 and forced to race at the back of the pack. As a result, he had to make up several lengths on the pacesetter Bear Behind. No mean feat considering that horse is rated 99 and an exciting sprint prospect in his own right.

Victory was achieved on ground described as ‘heavy’, similar to conditions that he faces today. He is well drawn in stall 3 and racing off a rating of 99, he still looks well handicapped. He should be half the price of the 9/4 (Betfred) quoted. 

*Best Odds Guaranteed – Betfred
Back Ballesteros with Betfred as they are best price and offer Best Odds Guaranteed. If the starting price (SP) is bigger than the current price, you get paid at the bigger SP.

*Rule 4 Deductions
Due to a Non-Runner after posting there were deductions of 5p in the pound.

Tips & Advice

Goodwood Tips: Snow Sky

Paid the price for chasing a strong pace at Royal Ascot but his Lingfield Derby Trial win was impressive and his trainer has an excellent record in the race.

Goodwood Tips: Pallister

Has been winning at 6f but his dam won the Yorkshire Oaks and likely to be suited by the step up in trip.

Channel 4/1 Race Offer

Back any single winner at 4/1 or more on a live Channel 4 race and have a free bet to the same stake (£50 max.) on the next Channel 4 race with Bet365.

Goodwood Tips: Amarillo

His German form is underrated but he is a Group-class and travelled strongly when winning last time out over an inadequate 6f.

Goodwood Tips: Fitz Flyer

In-form jockey riding for an in-form yard. Only beaten 2 lengths in this race two years ago and returns off an 8lbs lower mark.

Market Movers: Sleep Walk

Sleep Walk has only had one race, beating three runners in an ordinary maiden but she's probably better than the form having been backed into odds-on from 2/1.
