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

Yarmouth Tips: Tom Sawyer

Showed all his battling qualities to win at Beverley despite a contested lead. Could prove difficult to pass in a small field.

Brighton Tips: Valmina

Bumped into a hotpot at Bath last time out but has been running well without getting the rewards and this looks a weak class 5 handicap.

Brighton Tips: Top Offer

Dropped down the weights since he ran in the 2000 Guineas but a different horse since a wind-operation. A potential improver now he is healthy.

Doncaster Tips: Seeking Magic

Has plenty of raw pace as seen when runner-up in the Epsom Dash but equally comfortable over 6f. Overpriced considering his consistency at this level.

Bath Tips: Random Success

Roger Charlton heads to Bath on the hunt for fast ground and his stable are flying with a 35% strike rate this month.

Chester Tips: Emjayem

Came from a long way back to win at Wolverhampton, covering the final 2f in 22.8s. Showed an excellent turn of foot into a quickening pace.

St Leger Meeting: Day Three

It's day three of the St Leger meeting with fives races shown live on Channel 4, including the Doncaster Cup.

Doncaster Tips: Doc Hay

Well handicapped on old form and his victory at Beverley was a triumph over circumstances; trip too far, finished tired but still won by six lengths.
