4:55 Chester Racing Tips (16th June)

Chester racing tips
I am not a fan of betting at this course but maybe ok this time, I've marked 7 down as lays in the race, Casterbridge is a front runner and in stall 1 and my 4th top rated, joint 3rd top are Highland Acclaim and Mujassam, 2nd top is Lexis Hero but stall 12 isn't great for a front runner but top rated SPIRIT OF WEDZA 11/2 likes to track the leaders and from stall 2 can get a handy early position from which to attack late on.

Spirit Of Wedza 11/2 3rd
YORK 5.15
Too many runners, 20, to be completely confident here, there's early pace across the course but none of my top 4 are front runners, Athollblair Boy 4th best, Bogart 3rd best, Ninjago a hold up type is 2nd best but top rated is TOOFI 10/1 another that likes to be held up for a late run and I will go with an each way bet but my stakes will be kept low just because of the amount of runners

Toofi 12/1 Unp
BATH 5.20
I am not a fan of this distance 5 furlongs 160 yards, I've put 5 of the 12 runners as lays, the biggest problem is the lack of known early paced types which could suit my selection, CAPTAIN RYAN 10/1 who is my top rated on 6 furlong times and 2nd best on 5 furlong times so I'm hoping its the winning combination here and the jockey booked is 1-2 for this stable on previous rides which bodes well and the price allows me to back it each way.

Captain Ryan 10/1 3rd
Only 7 runners, 2 I can discount completely, 2 who are a few spots off the top 2 and an unknown quantity, leaves me with Oriental Splendour who recorded a fast time last year when getting towed along in a fast run race but that time looks very much like a fluke and if that's so that leaves me with KING CRIMSON 7/4 who is also the only known front runner in the race and could easily lead all the way here.
