2023 Lily Agnes Betting Odds at Chester racecourse

Wednesday, 10 May 2023

There’s some fantastic horse racing at Chester this week and that includes the Caa Stellar Lily Agnes Conditions Stakes. There are eleven runners set to battle it out over five furlongs, with Ziggy’s Phoenix laying down a marker after his last appearance and this horse heads the current betting, with Ziggy’s Dream also prominent in the market.

Parkside Boy could also be a popular each-way selection and Balon D’Or is another horse that tasted victory last time out, with She’s Smart and Tierney also worthy of consideration. It’s a short and sharp distance around a tight track at the Roodee, with the runners and riders needing to get off to a fast start to be in contention here.

Ziggy’s Phoenix will be ridden by Ryan Moore at the Roodee on Wednesday 10 May, with the two-year-old looking a worthy favourite to score in the Caa Stellar Lily Agnes Conditions Stakes. Off a mark of 8-13, the bookmakers are keeping the horse onside and there was plenty to like about a recent victory at Ripon on 20 April against a field of five other runners.

Sent off as the 11/4 joint-favourite over five furlongs on soft ground, the Richard Hannon-trained charge was able to fend off other joint-favourite Desert Master to get the job done. That came after a debut on the all-weather at Kempton where the horse finished midfield although it seems to be improving with every race.

Ziggy’s Dream could provide some food for thought and Alice Haynes could have her best chance of the meeting with a horse that has only ran once before, although this was a successful outing. At Doncaster, the runner beat four other competitors to oblige at odds of 9/4 over five furlongs, with Kieran O’Neill on board this promising runner.

Parkside Boy also comes into the race off the back of a victory and there was a victory in a field of four horses at Dundalk on 14 April, with Balon D’Or having beaten a larger number of runners when making a debut at Musselburgh. The Hugo Palmer-trained horse secured a victory on good to soft ground in Scotland when obliging by a neck.
