Plus here's a bit more detail on Planet Sports trio of tasty tips from Chester.

14.05 Chester - Koy Koy

There's nothing fishy about this Andrew Balding pick in the Deepbridge Handicap.

The three-year-old Acclamation colt won over seven furlongs at Newbury in fine style last time out, putting seven lengths between himself and Amanda Perrett's Borntobealeader.

David Probert takes the reins with Koy Koy looking to swim circles round the opposition.

14.40 Chester - Star Of India

Named after one of the world's largest gemstones, Star Of India can put in a polished performance for AP O'Brien in the Homeserve Dee Stakes.

The Irish trainer is enjoying a great time at Chester, turning over New London on Wednesday and he can add to his haul with this promising colt who holds an Epsom Derby entry.

Star Of India can build on a fifth last time out in the Group 3 Craven Stakes, with the extended trip liable to bring out some improvement under top jockey Ryan Moore.

16.50 Chester - Temple Of Artemis

Aidan O'Brien really is pulling out his Derby talent and another Epsom entry can take the Roofing Consultants Group Handicap.

The Galileo colt was a promising third in a mile and two furlongs maiden at Leopardstown and the extra two miles and a bit at Chester makes a proper Derby test.

With impeccable breeding and a string of Grade 1 entries, Temple Of Artemis could become a thing of worship after this.
