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.

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

Off a career low mark and although beaten 3.5 lengths last time he clocked a similar sectional to the winner and didn’t get a clear run.

Wolverhampton: Lightscameraction

Ran a rapid 21.54s closing sectional on his last start, matching strides with the winner but started his run from further back.

William Hill are best odds guaranteed and non-runner money-back on the Grand National.

Lingfield Tips: Peak Storm

Ran joint fastest closing sectional last time but started his run from further back than the winner because of a poor draw.

Southwell Tips: Speightowns Kid

Went close in a similar race three starts back and better than the bare form last time. Badly drawn and outpaced over minimum trip.

Kempton Tips: Deftera Lad

Should improve racing behind a strong pace and slightly unlucky last time when hampered close to the finish.

Wolverhampton Tips: Sir Keating

Covered the final 2f at Wolverhampton in 21.9s, an extremely fast finish especially considering it was his racecourse debut.
