The 2K to 10k Betting challenge continues on Wednesday afternoon from Chester ,with the days feature race the £100,000 Chester Vase .

The betting bankroll now stands at £2626 after the last selection Stormy Antarctic finished staying on second in Bet365 mile at Sandown. No match for impressive winner Addeybb ,though ran solid enough race for £10.00 profit .The stakes increase slightly to £105.00 .

Moving on to Wednesday we have open looking Derby trial.10 runners declared for the Chester Vase over 1M 4F on ground described as good/soft.The three main contenders look to be Hunting Horn , Ispolini & Young Rascal .

HUNTING HORN : 3-Y-0 Bay Colt ,winning 1 out 4.Shown improved form since stepping up in trip, winning 10f maiden at Naas last month.Also finished creditable third in group three Sandown Classic trial 12 days ago,coming home strongly in closing stages. Look sure improve over this longer trip.Solid claims 

ISPOLINI : 3-Y-0 Bay Colt,winning 1 out 3.Won 10f maiden at Kempton on poly track in November.Showed big improvement last time ,finishing close second in group three Sandown Classic trial .Not certain to improve over this 2f longer trip,though still interesting contender .

YOUNG RASCAL 3-Y-0 Bay Colt,winning 1 out 2 .Won 20 runner 11f maiden at Newbury last month in impressive style,beating Corgy by 5 lenghs .Takes big step up in class ,though looks open to further improvement over this longer trip .Interesting contender .
VERDICT : HUNTING HORN looked big eyecatcher at Sandown in the classic trial ,finishing strongly from well off the pace .The son of Derby Winner Camelot should relish the step up in trip .Trainer Aiden O'Brien also has excellent record with his three-year-olds at the track (20 out 46) 43% .Odds around 4-1 looks solid each-way value .

Young Rascal could be the main danger after winning 11f maiden at Newbury in good style ,looks open to plenty more improvement after just two starts .
