REECE’S LONGSHOT | Chester May Festival: Wednesday’s Each-Way Bet of the Day

An intriguing three-year-old makes the cut for the each-way selection at Chester on Wednesday



888 Promotion
Sir Benedict – 3.45 Chester (18/1 – Ladbrokes)

A 6f handicap holds the each-way bet at Chester on Wednesday, with a gelding from Ian Williams’ yard catching interest.

Sir Benedict struggled on his last outing at Newmarket three weeks ago, but he should appreciate the step back down in class here.

He produced a bold effort over C&D back in September, dictating the pace early on but he was reeled in the final strides by Harmony Lil.

Can Sir Benedict return to form for Ian Williams at Chester?

The three-year-old will benefit if the weather continues to decline, with his last success at this distance coming on soft ground at Doncaster in November.

With a price tag of 18/1, Sir Benedict could well sneak into the places in this contest.
