Friday’s racing comes from seven venues, with three afternoon meetings and four evening cards. Yarmouth, Cartmel, Doncaster, the Curragh, Newmarket, Newcastle and Chester all host racing and we’ll have horse racing tips for all of them.
Chester is the venue of focus, however, namely the sprint races. The venue is described as many to be a “roundabout” and a low draw is crucial in the shorter-distance races. We’ve gone through three of the seven-furlong races to find three horses who can take advantage of their low draw. They form an 36-1 accumulator and you can find all the details below.
5.55 Chester – Clogau UK Silk Series Handicap
Hollie Doyle is a master of judging the pace of races from the front and SUPER OVER could be another all the way winner for her. He’s drawn in stall three, but London Palladium on the inside is unlikely to go forward and the same comments apply to Point Louise.
Trained by Archie Watson he built on two promising second-place finishes by scoring at Kempton last time. Pepped up by the first-time blinkers, he never looked likely to be caught despite the long straight at Kempton.
Today’s test should suit him perfectly, as he’s likely to steal a break on the bend and his rivals are unlikely to find him coming back to them in the closing stages.
7.40 Chester – Clogau Restricted Maiden Stakes
With Abbie Power a non-runner, it leaves the door ajar for BELLPORT to strike. Another for Hollie Doyle, she’s drawn in the box-seat in stall one and can put her experience to good use for Andrew Balding.
Racing over five furlongs at Bath on her debut, she missed the break and was outpaced throughout, keeping on well late on behind Caturra. She posted a similar performance at Lingfield last time and although that was a shade disappointing, this is a much easier contest.
She sets the standard for those with experience and sent over this easier seven furlongs, she has a great chance.
8.10 Chester – Retraining Of Racehorses Handicap
Running well on all three of his visits to Chester, stall three gives SHAWAAMEKH a superb chance of snapping a losing sequence. You have to go back to August 2019 to find his last victory, but he’s now three pounds below that mark and he’s shaped well on all three of his 2021 starts.
That includes a return run over course and distance, where he was an eyecatcher after having a nightmare passage. He should have no such problems today thanks to the draw. He’ll be able to track the pace closely, before delivering his challenge under David Nolan.
That should allow him to get first run on the closers, and he’ll be tough to peg back if that’s the case.
