Chester Tips: Ballesteros

10th May 2012 | Horse Racing

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

Market Movers: Global Leader

Global Leader hasn't shown much in four starts but he's been gelded since his last run and a drop in trip looks in his favour. The money has come, backed from 11/2 into 11/8.

Market Movers: Piazon

Piazon lost his last race at the start but if he breaks on terms he has a good chance in the 3.35 Yarmouth. There has been plenty of overnight money, his price shortening from 7/4 to 10/11.

Nothing Fishy About Piscean

Has been running well but races haven’t unfolded in his favour; needs a strong pace but could get that today.

Newmarket Tips: Hamza

Previous course and distance winner who ran a fine race at Meydan on World Cup night.
