Chester Races Odds
Doing some research could prove pivotal for punters looking to take advantage of profitable Chester races odds. Horses that prefer racing on left-handed tracks could hold a significant advantage, alongside those who prefer to run close to the pace. This is because the track has a particularly short home straight, which does not allow a lot of time for the fast finishers to make their moves.
Although failing to have a Group One showpiece on its annual calendar, there are still some respected races on display at Chester. The two biggest in terms size are the Chester Vase and the Ormonde Stakes, which are both Group Three contests.
Back the favourites in the Ormonde Stakes and Chester Vase
Looking for horses weighted with 8st12lb would have been a good start for the Chester Vase in recent years as five of the last six winners and all of their last four have triumphed with this weight on their backs. Favourites have also been successful in three of the past nine years, while Aidan O’Brien is a trainer worth paying attention to as he has saddled Soldier Of Fortune, Golden Sword and Treasure Beach to recent victories.
When analysing the Chester races odds for the Ormonde Stakes, it is again perhaps best to side with those towards the head of the betting. In the past nine years, all of the winners have been in the top two in the odds. Age could additionally be critical because four and five-year-olds tend to fare best, although The Whistling Teal did upset this statistic when landing the honours aged ten in 2006.
