Forecast

Blithe Spirit (7/2), Signore Piccolo (9/2), Confessional (6/1), Reflektor (8/1), Ashpan Sam (8/1), Powerallied (12/1), Justanotherbottle (12/1), Mayleaf Shine (16/1), Orient Class (18/1), Gamesome (18/1), Normal Equilibrium (20/1), Lightscameraction (33/1), Ballesteros (40/1)

Verdict
Like plenty of sprints around Chester especially over 5f luck in running and the draw will play a big part in deciding the result. SIGNORE PICCOLO didn’t really get the run of the race last time out and remains in good form and from stall 4 he’s the main suggestion here to get back to winning ways. Reflektor tends to run his races around here with Ashpan Sam a quick individual from the plum draw although there are a few that like to go forward here. Powerallied and Ballesteros are two that would be fancied for Richard Fahey and owner Marwan Koukash who loves to have winners here if they were better drawn and it could be that Confessional can make the frame dropping in the weights and from a good draw.
  1. Signore Piccolo
  2. Ashpan Sam
  3. Reflektor
