Balding Three Year Old Set To Follow Up
Chester tends to be not only a "Horses for Courses" track but a "Trainer for Courses" place as well and Andrew Balding clearly knows what kind of animal can succeed there. BTOPlus+ shows his figures as an outstanding 23% there and he has one in the shape of BACACARAT in the Homeserve Handicap at 3.10 who fits other criteria necessary to win the event. The son of Raven's Pass has raced just seven times and won last time out (dead heat) at Newmarket in a Class 4 from previous Sandown winner Data Protection with Mainsail Atlantic in third and Gateway (previous winner) in fourth. That looks good without being outstanding but certainly enough for this affair. That event was over a mile and today’s extra two and a half furlongs, judged on the way Bacacarat ran on at Newmarket in his previous two races at Haydock and Thirsk, will suit admirably. He is top on regular BTO ratings and third on speed and gets nine nice positives, including his trainer and sire's performance at the course as highlighted above; he looks decent at Bet365's 2/1.
