1:50 Chester - Speculative Bet (30th May)

An EBF Maiden Stakes over 6f 18y on good going. A decent field on juveniles with the likes of Beaverbrook proving to be a talent. A wide draw isn't ideal although horses can win when coming off the pace and this contest is likely to be run at a pace. General Alexander was unlucky in the Brocklesby and didn't have much luck from a wide draw at Beverley when bumping into a decent debut winner. This extra furlong will be in his favour and Brian Ellison's two-year-old may be able to pick up the pieces if the leaders push a stride too far. At odds of 14/1+ he has each-way claims. 

General Alexander 14/1 4th
