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

Tips & Advice

Market Movers: High Secret

Sir Mark Prescott is up to his usual tricks with High Secret a 58 rated horse who was an easy winner on his last start. Expect him to rack up a series of wins from his lowly mark.

Hamilton Tips: Bajan Bear

Finished first of the low drawn horses in the Ayr Bronze Cup and relishes these big field handicaps.

Haydock Tips: High On Life

Not disgraced when finishing five lengths behind Muthmir in the Portland. Slight drop in trip could make the difference to this speedball.

Ripon Tips: Confessional

Finished third over course and distance in the Great St Wilfrid and unlikely to face the same pace pressure in a smaller field.

Wolverhampton Tips: Indastar

Won over course and distance in a very fast time for the grade. Lightly raced and can string together a series of quick wins off a low mark.

Kempton Tips: Arctic Lynx

Has placed 67% of the time in this grade and Freddie Tylicki has been runner-up on him twice in only two starts.

Beverley Tips: Iptisam

Lightly raced due to injuries but ran a good time figure when second in a 5f Listed race at Lingfield back in March.

Leicester Tips: Taajub

Finished an unlucky tenth in the race last year but arrives in better form and races off a 5lbs lower mark.
