Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Saturday; My Painter in the Chester 4.40. Compare odds and bet.
A fairly average Saturday, where most people will be anticipating an explosive display from current 2,000 Guineas favourite Kingman at Sandown, but his price is pretty prohibitive so is best watched.
The feature event at Chester is a competitive affair, in which Sun Central ought to go well, but he may not be able to dictate things from his wide draw, so the day’s sole selection comes later on the card, in the shape of My Painter (4:40) who can land the two-year-old maiden for Charlie Hills.
Charlie’s father, Barry, won this event five times between 2004 and 2001, and the Jeremy filly shaped with plenty of promise on her debut at Newmarket three weeks ago. The form of that race has yet to be tested, but it looked a decent event on paper and should work out. She sets a decent standard and is open to plenty of improvement.
4:40 Chester: My Painter; 7/4 Paddy Power
