  • Chepstow Best Bets (): Louisiana Bay Set To Dominate, Chester Tonik Has Each Way Hopes

Chepstow best bets (2040): Louisiana Bay set to dominate, Chester Tonik has each-way hopes

Our friends in the Tipstrr office have been running their numbers to provide us with their most popular picks in the very last race of the evening meeting at Chepstow

20:40 Chepstow:  Cuffe And Taylor Company Monmouthshire Cup Handicap  (1½ miles)

After ending last season with three decent frame finishes, Cherryhawk looked none the worse for a five-month break when notching up another creditable runner-up spot on her reappearance at Bath 16 days ago.

Nikki Evans’ four-year-old filly appears to pose the biggest threat to our main pick, Louisiana Bay, who is looking to convert some impressive all-weather form on her season turf debut.

She arrives off the back of four consecutive top-two finishes since the beginning of March, including victories at Southwell and Lingfield, the latter of which saw her ease five lengths clear of the nearest of her 15 rivals.

If able to convert that form to turf, then she should give a good ride to Rossa Ryan, who is no stranger to success at the Welsh track, having guided 27 of his previous 133 rides here into the winner’s circle for an impressive 20 percent win rate (47% place rate)  

Suggested best bet: Louisiana Bay in the 20:40 at Chepstow


The open market suggests there is cause for optimism among the so-called outsiders, and while Starfighter looks useful for the Loughnane team, it is the Alexandra Dunn-trained Chester Tonik who has caught the attention of the Tipster each-way collective.

Prone to be a tad temperamental, he was pulled up in a hurdling effort at Wincanton three weeks ago, but when in the mood he can surprise, and usually at a good price.

The four-year-old's solitary success came at Salisbury over a shorter trip this time last year, and he also gave a good account of himself when coming runner-up over the same distance in heavy going at Beverley last August.

He encountered similar conditions on his last Flat outing at Bath in early April, when the conditions took their toll in the closing stages.

Joe Leavy was on board that day, and returns with his five-pound allowance here, and in the less testing conditions better things are expected of Chester Tonik as he is tried in cheekpieces for the first time.
