Excell-ent chance at Chester by George!

Excellerator can continue George Baker’s fine first season as a trainer by winning the EBF Combermere Fillies’ Conditions Stakes at Chester tomorrow.

The Moreton Morrell-based handler is almost into double figures in his rookie year, with Excellerator having played her part when making a successful debut at Southwell in June.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel has improved with each run for after finishing third to Rosabee at Doncaster, she went on to take third place in the Group Three Princess Margaret Stakes at Ascot a month ago.

Excellerator seems certain to run a big race on the Roodee, as long as she acts on the track.

Captain Imperial can follow his maiden success at Thirsk earlier this month with victory in the Surrenda-Link Nursery.

Tom Tate’s youngster was getting off the mark at the third attempt with a gutsy pillar-to-post win by a head from Bandanaman.

There looks more to come from the son of Captain Rio and judged by the way he acted round Thirsk, he should not be inconvenienced by Chester.

Admiral Dundas can complete a hat-trick in the Play Live Casino At betinternet.com Handicap at Sandown.

The three-year-old, trained by William Jarvis, notched victories at Newmarket and Pontefract in the style of a progressive type.

His latest success was gained under top weight at the latter track, for which he does not appear to have been harshly treated by the handicapper.

Even Bolder deserves to get his head in front in the Best Odds Guaranteed At betinternet.com Handicap.

Eric Wheeler’s sprinter was just touched off by Total Impact at Glorious Goodwood and then took third behind Lord Of The Reins at Newmarket last week.

Henry Cecil has given several lofty entries to On Our Way, who can take a step to earning a crack in top company with victory in the Weatherbys Bank Stonehenge Stakes at Salisbury.

A smooth winner of a mile maiden at Sandown three weeks ago, the Oasis Dream colt this time goes for a Listed contest over that trip and looks up to the task.

An easy victory could see connections look to races like the Royal Lodge Stakes or the Racing Post Trophy in the autumn.

Finsbury can lift the Sodexo Stop Hunger Charity Handicap at Hamilton Park for Jim Goldie.

The gelding won the Newmarket handicap restricted to greys on his latest start and is still at the right end of the weights and has to be the choice.
