I like the look of Richard Fahey's KING OF TONGA in Chester's Deepbridge Capital Handicap on Thursday.

In five career starts, he has yet to finish out of the first three and was beaten only two heads by the re-opposing Sparklealot over the course and distance (soft) last September.

There is little between the pair at these weights but the selection may have made considerable improvement judged on his game reappearance second at Beverley last month (beaten a short head) to the Richard Hannon-trained Motafaawit who boasted some smart form as a two-year-old beating Nayef Road (a winner at Newmarket last Sunday) and finishing second to the very useful Legends Of War.

King Of Tonga was only nailed close home by Motafaawit but they pulled five lengths clear of the third James Watt, who filled the same position behind Moyassar in another warm handicap at Newmarket last weekend.
