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

Market Movers: Pabusar

Pabusar hails from a stable that like a gamble and he's been backed from 33/1 into 7/2. His current form has been abysmal but he could be very well handicapped if rediscovering any of his old ability.

Sandown Tips: Jiroft

Change of yards might work the oracle again. His previous best came on debut for Robert Cowell.

Market Movers: La Havrese

La Havrese opened at 6/1 last night but is now half the price to win the 7.10 Carlisle. She's only raced once this season and makes her handicap debut this evening.

Market Movers: Rainbow Rock

Rainbow Rock was 4/1 overnight but the fancy prices have been picked off and he is no bigger than 15/8 for the 8.45 Beverley. Mark Johnston's horse has run well this season and looks open to further improvement.

Beverley Tips: Boris Grigoriev

Not stood much racing in recent seasons but was a 100+ rated juvenile for Aidan O’Brien and looks well treated off a mark of 73.

Lingfield Tips: New Leyf

Drops a couple of levels in class but arrives in reasonable form. Adam Kirby on board a bonus.

Hamilton Tips: Blaine

Luckless on his last two starts but capable of taking a big sprint handicap judged on his early season form.
