LIVE IN THE DREAM (2.05 Chester, nap)

He tanked along when winning over this trip at Sandown. Ryan Moore can fly out of trap two and he’ll take a lot of catching. He is up the weights but has more to come.

STAR OF LADY M (1.30 Chester, nb)

He has the ideal low draw to make the most of her pace. She scored on debut at Redcar but was more impressive when scooting in at Ripon. There’s more to come.

EVER GIVEN (3.40 Chester, treble)

He can give Hugo Palmer an important win. He’s a local trainer since moving to Michael Owen’s Cheshire stables and this three-year-old has strong form over this trip including a Listed fourth at York.

Chester racing ITV4 guide

1.30

STAR OF LADY M has the ideal low draw to make the most of her pace.

She scored on debut at Redcar but was more impressive when scooting in at Ripon. There’s more to come.

Ocean Cloud is also unbeaten and will be a threat if showing her AW form on turf.

Zephina comes from stall one and went close at Southwell and can go well under William Buick.

Glorious Angel showed promise on debut, while Dunnington Lad made all to win at Windsor and could be dangerous if getting on the pace.

2.05

LIVE IN THE DREAM tanked along when winning over this trip at Sandown. Ryan Moore can fly out of trap two and he’ll take a lot of catching.

He is up the weights but has more to come.

Shamlaan has won four of his past five and should like the track after winning at Goodwood at the weekend. He could defy a penalty.

Nymphadora has been running in Group races with credit and has the ideal inside draw.

2.40

ABOVE THE CURVE looked classy when winning a Leopardstown maiden with no trouble.

She saw out 1m2f well and should relish this longer trip for Joseph O’Brien.

Night Battle managed to win despite being green at Lingfield and has a lot more to come.

Hello Jumeirah is another who has shown promise on the sand and could take a big step forward.

Morning Poem will be fitter for his comeback run and Frankie stays on board this Kingman filly.

3.10

NEW LONDON is fancied for the Derby and was impressive when returning to win easily at Newmarket last month.

That built on his debut Rowley Mile win and stepping up to the Classic trip can bring improvement.

Changingoftheguard stormed home at Dundalk and Aidan O’Brien is looking for a tenth Chester Vase so knows what it takes to win.

3.40

EVER GIVEN can give Hugo Palmer an important win. He’s a local trainer since moving to Michael Owen’s Cheshire stables and this three-year-old has strong form over this trip including a Listed fourth at York. Stall two is ideal.

Pocket The Profit is out wider but ran well at Newmarket latest and is not written off.

Russellinthebushes won here in September and looks on a fair mark.
