Moving on to Friday ,we have interesting staying contest at Chester on ground described as soft .

14 runners declared for Chester Plate handicap over 2M 2F for horses eliminated from the Chester Cup .The three main contenders look to be Master Archer , Coeur De Lion & Drakensburg . 

MASTER ARCHER : 5-Y-0 Grey Gelding , winning 2 out 12 on Turf .Showed progressive form last season winning twice over 2 miles here at Chester.Unproven on soft ground ,though is 2 out 2 at Chester .Makes seasonal reapperance .

COEUR DE LION : 6-Y-0 Bay Gelding ,winning 1 out 15 on turf ,also finished second five times .Consistent stayer on flat & Jumps,including finishing close second in this race last year .Made promising reappearance finishing good second in 2M 2F handicap at Newbury on soft ground .Should go well off the same mark ,with ground conditions to suit .

DRAKENSBURG : 5-Y-0 Irish Chestnut Gelding ,winning 2 out 10 on turf.Also been in good form on All Weather winning last two starts at Dundalk over 12f in good style .Up 12lb in weights for last victory ,though looks open to further improvement .

VERDICT :  Irish challenger Drakensburg looks interesing off low weight ,though still has plenty to prove over this marathon trip .Odds around 3-1 look short enough for horse with question marks about ground and trip .

COEUR DE LION looks solid after finishing promising second at Newbury last time over this trip on soft ground.Also finished close second in this race last year off the same mark 88 .Will  be suited  by testing conditions .Odds around 4-1 look fair value .
