NAP – Telescope (14:15 Chester)
Our tip of the day may have disappointed on his seasonal reappearance at Sandown last time out.
But we fancy the talented four-year-old to reverse the form with Noble Mission and go on to score here having needed a run under his belt.
The Group 2 winner should keep pace with the dangerous front-runner Ektihaam while also reeling in last year’s winner, Danadana.
Gabrial’s Kaka is an interesting outsider having landed top honours in the Spring Cup at Newbury before grabbing second at Haydock on his previous run.
Doubts over his stamina dampen appeal though with Telescope the standout contender.
Next Best – Orchestra (14:45 Chester)
Ryan Moore gets the ride onboard AP O’Brien’s fancy, bidding to emulate last year’s success in this race when riding Ruler of the World.
The strapping colt’s breeding suggests he’ll be well-suited to middle-distance running and a comfortable victory over 7f last time out hinted that this longer trip will be welcomed.
O’Brien has landed this event in five of the last eight years with stablemate Carlo Bugatti and Stars Over the Sea the other main threats to Orchestra’s chances.
Lively Longshot – Dispour – (17:00 Chester)
Donald McCain’s charge looks well-handicapped to cause something of an upset with his latest winning performance over hurdles at Sandown pointing towards a potential big race victory on the flat.
Having found his way into the winners’ enclosure on turf earlier on his career the four-year-old has to be respected among a field with plenty of questions marks surrounding their chances.
Memory Cloth chases a four-timer but has a step up in the weights, class and the loss of Megan Carberry’s allowance to contend with.
Meanwhile, Spes Nostra’s recent form on the Polytrack may be impressive but this turf test looks a different proposition.
