With £10,000 still up for grabs on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week, here are Chad Yeomans' best Chester horse racing tips to get you started.
Top pick: Mokaatil | Second choice: Camacho Chief
The opening race on day two of the Chester May Festival is a very competitive sprint handicap over 5f.
As I’m sure you’ve heard plenty of times, a low draw is hugely favourable, which is one of a few reasons to pick MOKAATIL.
He ran encouragingly on his seasonal debut and has been dropped 2lbs in the process. Trainer Ian Williams has enjoyed plenty of success at Chester over the years and it looks as though that will continue this year.
Fast-improving sprinter, Camacho Chief, is sure to be flying at the business end of the race and is also worth an each-way punt.
Top pick: Circus Maximus | Second choice Mohtarrif
The Dee Stakes has been won no less than seven times by Aidan O’Brien, and this year's short-priced favourite CIRCUS MAXIMUS can make it eight in this Listed Derby Trial.
He improved with each start as a two-year-old, culminating in a narrow fourth in the Futurity Stakes behind recent 2000 Guineas winner, Magna Grecia.
He is the chosen mount of Ryan Moore and should take all the beating here.
The unexposed Mohtarrif won nicely over a shorter distance of one mile last time, overcoming greenness, and could well be the horse to fill the second place spot at a big price.
Top pick: Drogon | Second choice Forseti
Local trainer Tom Dascombe saddles four in this race and his so-called fourth string, DROGON, can take the spoils under Jim Crowley.
Drawn in four, his handler has recently said he needs to go left-handed and, although beaten at short odds here last September, he can more than make up for that with a win at a big price.
David Probert often rides low weights for Andrew Balding and rides Forseti here. This improving son of Charm Spirit is a good each-way bet for a trainer with a 22 per cent win rate in the past five seasons on the Roodee.
Top pick: Kew Gardens | Second choice: Magic Circle
The feature race on Thursday is the Ormonde Stakes, a Group 3 prize that Aidan O’Brien can take for a fifth time with this year’s main hope and 2018 St Leger winner, KEW GARDENS.
Not much more needs to be said about this horse, who ran a great race in the Arc de Triomphe at the back end of last season and looks to be head and shoulders above his rivals. This looks a great stepping stone to the Coronation Cup at Epsom in little under one month's time.
Magic Circle, who is better over further, will be doing his best work late on and can chase him home.
