Point and shoot: three horses to watch in the betting at Chester on Saturday

Cheshire Oaks

Chester Racecourse can be a punters’ nightmare as there is such an extreme draw bias there over sprint trips. This often makes it extremely difficult to win there from a high draw as the bends are very sharp and they come thick and fast. Often, horses with low draws are no value at all with the bookmakers as they are given an instant advantage, but we have picked out three horses running there on Saturday who can make the most of their good inside draw. Make sure you check out our free horse racing tips for Saturday, including a tip for the Doncaster St Leger.


3.15 Chester

Ziggy’s Dream needs to bounce back from a few below par efforts but if she can get back to where she was early in the season, then she has to have. a major chance coming out of stall two. She was well backed when winning at Doncaster in April and has course experience, being very unlucky not to land the Lily Agnes here next time.


3.52 Chester

Due For Luck has won two from two thus far, following up his debut win with another win under a penalty at Ripon over 5f last month, travelling like a dream and getting the head down under pressure. He has to have a major chance on handicap debut from the plum draw.


5.00 Chester

Oso Rapido also has the plum draw and this horse was a winner at Redcar in August before finishing second at Thirsk over 7f last week. Cheekpieces are put on for the first time and the drop back in trip is no issue.
