Betting

Forecast

Dark Devil (9/4), Worlds His Oyster (11/2), Dark Intention (11/2), Captain Dion (13/2), Be Kool (9/1), Luis Vaz De Torres (10/1), Gabrial The Tiger (16/1), Roaring Forties (20/1), Art Echo (22/1), Here's Two (22/1), Showboating (40/1), Meshardal (66/1)

Verdict
As usual a competitive Chester handicap it being rare that we don't get one where plenty have chances and that's the case here with DARK DEVIL being the one who looks to have the most solid credentials. Stablemates Luis Vaz De Torres and the very well handicapped Gabrial The Tiger also enter the mix. Dark Intention will need to step up again on the form she showed at York but can't be left out of this while Be Kool and the penalised Captain Dion could also make their mark in a tricky heat.
