No winners yesterday and this is a late blog posting as I've been travelling all day - and spent a few hours stuck on the M6.
There's not much to shout about this evening, but the meeting at Chester is always "readable" and sometimes throws-up a good priced winner which should really have gone off at much shorter odds. The 8:30 over 7f is such a race, and working from stall 1 outwards (as low drawn runners have such an advantage here) the first runner which can lead from the off and stay 7f (several of these are confirmed 5f & 6f sprinters - will they stay?) in stall 5 we have JESSE JAMES who usually leads and can stay 8f (never mind 7f).
Currently 16/1, he was rated OR87 after winning on good-to-firm at Windsor last season and then following-up with a good run at Goodwood. He clearly wants it fast, and he could run a big race at a big price.
