Ray Flanagan with a Chester Cup selection
Another Batt was a winner yesterday. One selection for an interest in today’s Chester Cup.
Chester 3.35- Dubawi Fifty
Dubawi Fifty holds as good of chance as any in an open renewal of the Chester Cup. I would be more confident if it were a stiffer galloping track like Newbury or York, however the plusses appear to outweigh the negatives overall.
He ran a fine race to be fourth in the Cesarewitch last October having been poorly positioned out the back and on the wrong side in the final stretch.
Has since been in decent form on the polytrack over the winter and encouragingly the fact that he can win there suggests he has sufficient speed, which you need as well as stamina in a Chester Cup.
I think he will need every inch of the 2 Mile 2 around the roudee, it will not be pretty , but the big field should ensure a good pace and with De Sousa rowing away, he might be the one finishing strongest in the closing stages.
