The opening race at the Chester May Festival is the historic Lily Agnes.
A conditions event over 5f, previous renewals show a low draw is key, which is good news for David O’Meara’s Star Of Lady M who has bagged herself stall 2.
This promising young filly got the better of the Brocklesby second on debut which is an excellent showing first time up and that rival further enhanced the form by winning from a wide draw at Beverley the next time.
She then confirmed that promise with a cosy victory at Ripon earning herself a justified step up in grade representing the yard that took this race back in 2019.
The daughter of Havana Grey is proven on soft ground so if the forecast is correct she has an advantage over most and Danny Tudhope, who is in excellent form, boasts an impressive 20.69% strike rate at the track.
