Chester Tips: Blithe Spirit

Chester Tips: Blithe Spirit

Is 5/15 at Chester and well drawn in stall 2. Did too much from wider draw last time but not beaten far.

Blithe Spirit has a terrific strike rate around Chester (5-15) and back at her favourite venue she can score in the 4.20 contest.

On paper this is almost an identical race to the one she finished 7th in three weeks ago but there several things in her favour. She is better drawn in stall 2 and should conserve more energy.

Last time out she worked too hard to get the lead from stall 6 and had nothing left in reserve. Her finishing speed of 94.2% was much slower than par and she finished very tired. Despite this she wasn’t beaten far and earned a good adjusted speed rating of 89.

Dropped 3lbs for that run, she can make another bold bid but this time hand on for the win.
