Race Verdict

PALE ORCHID is a hopeful choice in a typical Chester sprint. The Evans inmate has been kept busy this year and now takes in her eighth race of 2012. She showed good pace on Polytrack and has been far from disgraced in Listed company on the last three occasions, including once on turf. She can maximise her good draw in stall two. Ballesteros, drawn next door, will handle any give in the ground and has to make the shortlist, while Vocational should strip fitter for her recent comeback at Hamilton.

Selection: Pale Orchid        Danger: Ballesteros        Alternative: Vocational
