Forecast

Hochfeld (7/2), Shailene (7/2), Blakeney Point (9/2), Mountain Bell (5/1), Sir Chauvelin (5/1), Mistress Quickly (8/1), Gabrial (12/1), Zarrar (100/1)

Verdict
A compact field. Blakeney Point has the tongue-tie added to the blinkers which he sported when finishing a close up fifth to Muntahaa in the Ebor at York. He has a previous Chester win on his CV, as does the mare Mountain Bell - a narrow winner of this race on similar ground in 2016. She's not seen masses of racing since, but should prove more competitive than in the Ebor (17th of 20) with the ground back in her favour. However, HOCHFELD is the tentative pick. Yet to score outside of handicap company and barren so far in 2018, but there can be no denying that his record at this track (1,1,2) stands up to close scrutiny, and that promises to count for plenty.
  1. Hochfeld
  2. Mountain Bell
  3. Blakeney Point
