Timeform take you through the card at Chester on Sunday.

14:10 - Devil's Bridge sets a clear standard in this two-year-old maiden and should prove difficult to pass from stall 2. Navarone is the obvious threat.

14:40 - It's easy enough to envisage Tailor's Row making full use of stall 1, and, as a result, he looks set to reverse York form with In First Place. The Mark Johnston yard are obviously going well, too.

15:15 - A strong listed race. Eastern Impact and Danzeno were both placed at Group 1 level last season, but the former is preferred here given he's landed a much lower draw in stall 2.

15:50 - Ice Slice is in the form of his life, completing a four-timer at Haydock in May before losing little in defeat when third there last time, when going like the best horse at the weights for most of the way. He remains of interest from this sort of mark and gets the vote ahead from stall 2 of Gabrial The Tiger who is bidding to a land a four-timer of his own.

16:25 - Lonely The Brave was very strong at the finish when landing the odds over five furlongs at Chelmsford 3 weeks ago, and given there's plenty about him physically, can be expected to go on improving. He should be very hard to beat, though Super Julius emerged with credit in the Super Sprint.

16:55 - Mighty Lady might have only cost 800 guineas as a yearling but she made a winning debut at Chelmsford (at 50/1) in January and shaped well against some progressive three-year-old fillies on handicap debut at Chelmsford last month and she has to be high on the shortlist in this line-up. Viewpoint has largely held his form well since winning at Wolverhampton and he should be in the mix again, while last-time-out winner Lopito de Vega is sure to have his supporters again.

17:25 - Against The Odds looked better than ever following a seven-week break when taking a Windsor handicap earlier this month and is still low-mileage. He gets the nod in an open-looking finale, just ahead of Energia Fox and Justice Grace.
