Not one of the six races scheduled for Chester on Friday evening offers a prize fund below £10,000. That speaks volumes about the calibre of horses expected to compete. Ahead of the action, the going is currently good to firm (good in places). The following horse racing nap of the day comes from the ever-reliable Sky Sports.
Coming third in the evening is the 19:35 Fillies Handicap, which is open to horses three years or older and features the largest prize fund with £15,000. Current favourite from the seven runners is 9/4 prospect Shasag, winner of one from three in its career.
A slightly more appealing option is the 3/1 Serene Beauty, having won and finished twice in two races. Serene Beauty has been reared by a more familiar trainer in the form of Charlie Appleby. That understandably adds to the appeal of the three-year-old.
