Sunday's Chester best bets and racing tips: Rogue Spirit the one to beat

Planet Sport tipsters are at Chester racecourse on Sunday, July 31 with a fistful of cracking selections to help you bash the bookies.

A busy day of sport ahead of us on the final Sunday of the month, but while everyone is getting ready for the big football match, Sunderland vs Coventry...erm I mean England vs Germany, there's still a bit of time to stuff your pockets full of cash before the Lionesses kick-off.

You can get all the latest racecards and results from Chester by using the Planet Sport live centre, but first here's a quick list of our tips.

13:50 (Chester) In The Storm

14:20 (Chester) Endeared

14:55 (Chester) Wings of War (non-runner)

15:30 (Chester) Biggles

16:00 (Chester) Rogue Spirit

16:30 (Chester) Enthused

17:00 (Chester) Golden Melody

14:20 (Chester) Endeared

Endeared is expected to make it third time lucky for James Fanshawe in the British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes.

The youngster will have gone into many notebooks after his Doncaster debut as despite missing the break, running green and taking a keen hold, he was beaten just over a length into third place.

He backed up that effort with another sound performance when beaten a head by a smart looking newcomer in Mill Stream on his return to Town Moor a few weeks later.

He just looked to lack the pace of the winner dropping back to six furlongs on that occasion and this return to seven should do the trick, especially from stall one.

14:55 (Chester) Wings of War

Clive Cox appears to have found Wings Of War a good opportunity to open his account for the season in the Freddie Wilson Queensferry Stakes at Chester.

Having rounded off his juvenile campaign with a Group Two victory in the Mill Reef at Newbury, it is hardly surprising the son of Dark Angel has been highly tried so far this term.

He was not disgraced in either the Commonwealth Cup Trial at Ascot or the Sandy Lane Stakes at Haydock, but the Commonwealth Cup itself at Royal Ascot last month ultimately proved a bridge too far.

Cox decided to lower Wings Of War's sights on his latest appearance, sending him to France for a Group Three at Deauville three weeks ago.

Fitted with blinkers for the first time, the three-year-old finished an honourable third behind talented older sprinter Garrus, suggesting his winning turn is not far away.

With Tom Marquand clearly a positive jockey booking, Wings Of War should go close provided he gets the breaks from stall four on this notoriously tricky track.

16:00 (Chester) Rogue Spirit

A step up in trip may also help Rogue Spirit in the British Stallion Studs EBF Conditions Stakes.

Tom Clover's gelding has won two of his four starts to date, his only defeats coming in the Two Year Old Trophy at Beverley and when third in Newbury's Super Sprint.

He was beaten just a neck by the talented Chateau in the former contest, while he was third at Newbury behind Eddie's Boy, who ran a good race in the Molecomb at Goodwood earlier in the week.

Having done all his racing over the minimum trip, Rogue Spirit looks ready to test the water over six furlongs and should prove hard to beat.
