AS I mentioned earlier, there are some cracking races on Saturday, so here are a few I have noted that could go well….
Chester – 3.40 – Handicap – C4 – 1m 2f 70y
Sands Chorus – Won last time out by a head over distance after stepping up from 1m to 1m 2f from Dancing King, that was in a class 3 at Ripon, which Sands Chorus ran from the front & today’s track suits that style too, up 3 for win

Churchill – English 2,000 Guineas winner on seasonal return, when beating Barney Roy by 1 length, adding to his previous Group 1 wins in the Dewhurst & Vincent O’Brien Stakes last season – DANGER – Thunder Snow – WAs 2 lengths behind Churchill in last season’s Dewhurst, won both starts in Meydan including the UAE Derby, played Bucking Bronco when sent to the USA for the Kentucky Derby, if travelled ok, could be a decent EW chance
