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.

Tips & Advice

Ripon Tips: Compton Park

Spent most of his career in Spain but is quite smart considering he’s won his last two starts in the UK. Still looks well handicapped.

Catterick Tips: Pavers Star

Not beaten by more than a length on his last two starts and his early speed is an advantage on a sharp track.
