Plus here's some finer detail on Planet Sport's three main tips at Chester.

14.40 Chester - Above The Curve

By Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah, Above The Curve can give the rest a pyramid to climb in the Weatherbys Bloodstock Pro Cheshire Oaks.

Joseph Patrick O'Brien's filly was an impressive winner of a Leopardstown fillies' maiden last time out and has an entry for the Epsom Oaks on June 03.

O'Brien's charge beat his father's Thoughts Of June in that race and couldn't have been more eye-catching. Expect this one to remain Above The Curve.

15.10 Chester - New London

Fresh from a 2000 Guineas one-two, Charlie Appleby can take the Group 3 Boodles Chester Vase Stakes with New London.

Sired by Dubawi, New London is general 5/1 second favourite for the Epsom Derby after back to back victories at Newmarket.

The step up to one mile, four and a half furlongs makes this an ideal Derby prep run and Williams Buick is a more than capable partner.

16.15 Chester - Secret State

A good competitive Edinburgh Gin Maiden Stakes can see another one chalked up for the boys in blue with Secret State.

A typically well-bred colt by Dubawi, Secret State was a solid second on debut at Newmarket on debut last month.

That racecourse experience will be crucial and with a patient ride from Will Buick, Secret State can be an open winner here.
