With £10,000 still up for grabs on Friday and Saturday this week, here are Chad Yeomans' best Chester horse racing tips to get you started.



Top pick: Shady Mccoy | Second choice: Another Batt

SHADY MCCOY is the fancy in the first race on day three of the Chester May Festival for trainer Ian Williams and jockey Jason Watson.

He was running on for fourth place here in September last year when off a mark of 101 and is now down to a mark of 98. He'll have come on for his seasonal debut at Haydock a couple of weeks ago, and is certainly worth an each-way bet.

Another Batt, who might be a couple of pounds too high in the handicap to win, will run his usual race, despite being drawn wide for his new trainer Richard Hughes, who boasts a 20 per cent strike rate here as a trainer.


Top pick: Addeybb  | Second choice: Forest Ranger   

The Huxley Stakes is often a good starting point for many middle-distance horses, and the 2019 renewal features last year's winner, Forest Ranger, who is sure to run well.

However, the top pick is the William Haggas trained ADDEYBB, who looked a hugely-improved horse last year when winning the Lincoln and a Group 2 at Sandown in his first two starts as a four-year-old.

He does require some cut in the ground to perform at his best and, with the heavens opening over Chester in the past 48 hours, he will certainly get that under regular partner James Doyle.


Top pick: Shabeeb   | Second choice: Whiskey Sour   

The Chester Cup has become the Marwan Koukash Cup in recent years and there is no reason to think he won't get his hands on a fifth trophy with the Ian Williams-trained SHABEEB.

Previously in the care of Roger Varian, he has always looked as though he will improve for a marathon trip, which he'll get in this race.

He won his last start when staying on to win over 1m 6f at Newmarket and this longer trip can bring out more improvement, in a race he was no doubt purchased to run in.

The second choice is Whiskey Sour, ridden by Andrea Atzeni for Willie Mullins, who is bidding to win his first Chester Cup.

The Irish trainer has been mopping up all of the big staying handicaps on the flat in recent years and his supposed second choice here is well worth backing each-way with five places on offer at Betway.


Top pick: Heart of Soul   | Second choice: Charlie D 

HEART OF SOUL looks to have been campaigned and primed for this race by connections Williams and Koukash.

He ran a very good race on this card last year in the maiden race behind some really useful types, and was campaigned at Chester on his other two starts last season.

He has clearly shown a liking for the Roodee and his three runs this season will have put him spot-on to take this handicap.

Locally trained Charlie D can also run well off bottom weight, under start amateur jockey Sean Davis.
