Paul Ferguson has two selections from Chester for us on Friday; Nafaqa in the 2.40 and Tac De Boistron at 3.10. Compare odds and bet.
With a little more rain due on Friday, the ground might just be soft enough for TAC DE BOISTRON (3:10) in Chester’s Ormonde Stakes.
The Prix Royal Oak winner is burdened with a 7lb penalty and ideally wants a bit further, but he is a class act and can land this Group 3 under Martin Harley.
Big Orange is respected as he could well improve this year, but this is a fairly stiff ask on his seasonal reappearance.
Earlier on the card NAFAQA (2:40) should appreciate the drop in class and step up in trip in the Listed Dee Stakes.
Barry Hills’ Sir Percy colt finished runner-up in the Royal Lodge and Craven Stakes either side of his winter break, and I’d have expected him to head the market ahead of Smuggler’s Cove.
