2:35 Chester Racing Tips (6th Aug)

James Bethell
A Conditions Stakes over 6f 17y on good to soft going. 

Six two-year-olds take part and a fascinating race. A number of smart prospects here taking this as a stepping stone to group class. 

A tight betting heat. 

Interesting to see how Prestbury Park goes for Mark Johnston. This son of Shamardal went a stride too fast on debut when trailing home but that was all put right next start at Haydock when making all to a tidy success. This March foal is earmarked for a number of top-class races including the Gimcrack Group 2 and Champagne Stakes Group 2. 

Looking forward to seeing how James Bethell's Ulshaw Bridge goes after a comfortable win last time out at York. A lovely prospect for this quality trainer.
