Chester Cup Superboost

Day three of Chester's May meeting brings the feature race of the week in the Chester Cup.

Today we are boosting the favourite Aztec Empire to finish in the top 7.

You can back the Andrew Balding trained horse to finish in the top 7 in the 15:40 at Chester at the Superboost price of 1/12.00 from 2/71.29.

Ripon Nap - 18:05 - Back Princess Karine

Princess Karine proved fitter for her reappearance run and showed much improved form when bolting up in a five-furlong handicap at Pontefract last week, making all of the running and going clear in the final furlong.

She was well supported that day, so a big run was clearly expected, and she is hard to oppose here given that she escapes a penalty or rise in the weights for that success, while her jockey is also able to claim 3 lb now.

Ripon Next Best - 20:25 - Back On The Bubble

On The Bubbe left her previous form well behind fitted with a first-time hood when bolting up over a mile at Redcar last week, settling far better than on her handicap debut and her jockey was able to ease her near the finish, so there's a good chance she can defy a 6 lb penalty if the race doesn't come too soon.
