Oli Bell rates Idaho as the best bet at Chester on Thursday and has three other fancies in the TV races.
Oli Bell Thursday Yankee
Idaho drops down in grade for the Boodles Diamond Ormonde Stakes on Thursday and rates the banker for our Yankee. He won the Hardwicke at Royal Ascot last season and finished third to Enable in the King George at Ascot. He looks too good for these with Muntahaa the obvious danger.
His trainer Aidan O'Brien can also win the Homeserve Dee Stakes with Rostropovich. He's the choice of Ryan Moore and will come on a bundle for his reappearance run at Longchamp.
Tavener is well drawn for the opener and will run well.
He looked unlucky at Epsom last time when he finished full of running and if he gets the breaks here will go close.
Ed Walker's Simpson ran a solid race when fifth to Crossed Baton in the Derby trial at the same track.
He reverts to handicap company in the 3.00 and makes plenty of appeal at a big price.
