TWO days of racing at Chester starts the weekend early at 2.20pm today where the feature race is the European Breeders Fund Combermere Fillies' Conditions Stakes.
Due off at 4.05pm, the race is run over six furlongs.
Blue Rocket made a pleasing debut to her career with a win at Haydock earlier this month where she showed good pace over this trip. Frontline In Focus is another improving type and was last out when scoring at Yarmouth. The same applies to Roshanak who put up a good performance when successful at Leicester. Trainer Tim Easterby has multiple entries in this £20,000 sprint at the five-day stage.
If Ponty Rossa is declared to run and benefits from an advantageous low draw, she looks the pick to build on her hat-trick of wins - the latest at New-market earlier this month.
Silkie Smooth was second over the course and distance at the last Chester meeting and may go one closer today for course specialist Barry Hills in the Surrenda-Link Nursery.
Both Changing Wind, trained by Saeed Bin Suroor, and Strawberry Lolly, from the Sir Michael Stoute, yard have recent winning form on all -weather surfaces and hold entries in the Littlewoods Betdirect Handicap. The Stoute filly is given preference to make her experience tell.
Tomorrow the whole card is sponsored by Corbett Bookmakers and the feature race is the betterbetcorbett Chester Handicap (Listed Race).
Lost Tin Soldier put up a good performance when finishing third over what appears to be an inadequate trip at York last time out and should appreciate the extended one mile five furlongs here.
The biggest danger looks to be Kiswahili who successfully justified favouritism at Munich in a listed race last month and should follow up here.
Not For Me won over five furlongs here in July and should handle the extra furlong in the betterbetcorbett EBF Conditions Stakes for trainer Tim Pitt. The In Running Handicap presents Velvet Heights with an opportunity to use his proven stamina over two miles and go one closer than when just touched off at Kempton last time out.
