Analysis

Tim Pitt: "Chester was the plan, I wanted to go for a seven-furlong race on Friday but I don't think he would have got in so this has worked out well. He wants cut in the ground so the rain came in time and he had a nice draw with lots of speed inside him. Stevie gave him a great ride. I'm still getting to know him but he has a wonderful temperament."
