Timeform pick out their three best bets from Chester on Saturday…
“…he could prove hard to catch – especially if allowed the run of things in front.”
Timeform on Dragons Tail
Paul Midgley has an excellent record with sprinters, and Tanasoq has been a credit to him so far this term, recording three wins on the trot, and taking his form up another notch when winning the Epsom “Dash” in pretty dominant fashion 4 weeks ago. He’s been raised 7 lb for that, which looks lenient, and he’s fancied to go in again. Despite his advancing years Confessional continues to run well and he, along with Powerallied, look the dangers.
A competitive heat despite the presence of just four runners, and one in which Dragons Tail is fancied to score. He usually gives his running from the front, and refitted with a visor, he could prove hard to catch – especially if allowed the run of things in front. Both Crossing The Line and Gangland bring recent solid handicap form to the table though, and are entitled to plenty of respect.
Acclaim The Nation has looked an improved model this term, scoring on his second start back in Thirsk in May, before producing a couple of solid place efforts most recently. He’s got the plum draw in stall 1, and is fancied to make a bold bid from the front under Richard Kingscote. Pea Shooter will appreciate a good gallop to aim at and makes each-way appeal along with Maureb.
