Hugo Palmer offers his thoughts on Mazyoun's chances of overcoming a bad draw in the opening race at Chester...
"Hopefully Franny can produce some magic, but it looks like he will need to."
Mazyoun will need some Norton magic
The draw has not been kind to us at Chester this week, and Mazyoun has been handed the highest stall of all in this 16-runner handicap.
With runners for the stable at Lingfield, Ascot and Nottingham, I've also had to shuffle jockeys around, so it was a very pleasant surprise to be able to get Franny Norton for the ride on Mazyoun, and nobody rides the course better.
Hopefully Franny can produce some magic, but it looks like he will need to.
