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.

Ran well on his first start for James Unett overcoming a pace and draw bias to finish second at Chester. Drops down a grade this afternoon.

Sandown Tips: Elusivity

Soft ground lover who wasn’t beaten far in a Group 3 over course and distance two years ago. Performances this season suggest he retains ability.

Lingfield Tips: Expose

Capable of running sub-22s for the final two furlongs and with plenty of pace in the field the race could set up for him.

Epsom Tips: Huntsmans Close

Not beaten far in competitive handicap at Goodwood despite suffering minor interference. Has won on heavy ground.

Visor back on after a couple of excusable efforts. Previous course and distance winner and wasn’t beaten far in the Dash.
