JUDICIAL (6.30) has a good record around Chester and should make a bold bid conceding weight all round in the six-furlong Listed contest.
Julie Camacho has been among the winners this summer and Judicial is a stable stalwart. The eight-year-old found Newbury's stiff six furlongs overstretching his stamina when fading into fourth behind Tabdeed but should get a lovely tow into the race from stall two around the sharp Roodee circuit.
The 1m 2f handicap has a very open look to it, with likely favourite Desert Icon sure to make a bold bid to follow up his eight lengths victory at Newmarket in June. His seventh to Sinjaari in the John Smith's Cup at York was a decent effort but DATA PROTECTION (7.00) looked right back to his best following a wind operation when inflicting a heavy defeat on his rivals at HQ 16 days ago. A 4lb rise is fair.
HEART OF SOUL (8.00) may be the answer to a tricky little 1m 4f handicap. He landed some good bets when well supported at Hamilton, only seven days after chasing home Mankayan at Doncaster.
