The second of the three-day May Festival takes place on Thursday afternoon and our team are back with our best bet of the day at Chester.

Chester Racecourse General
Chester’s Thursday action kickstarts at 1:45pm, with a total of 7 contests on the card

Having won this race two years ago, Andrew Balding’s Morando rates as the one to beat in this field given his previous course form.

He ran a cracker in the Long Distance behind Thursday rival Trueshan in October, but the drop back in trip and quicker conditions are sure to play more into the selection’s favour.

Japan endured a torrid four-year-old campaign, beating home only nine of 28 rivals he faced from his five outings and he looks well worth taking on at the prices.
