Chester 05.05.2011 A misty start to the day left a heavy dew at the track but clerk of the course Andrew Morris was pleased to find that any overnight rain had been avoided.

Speaking just after 7.30am on Wednesday morning, he said: “The going remains soft, good to soft in places. It’s been a misty morning but we should get some sun over the next few hours.

“There is the risk of light rain during racing but I’m pleased with the latest reports for Thursday and Friday, which indicate it should be dry.

“The GoingStick reading taken on Wednesday morning was 5.7 (was 5.9 on Tuesday) but there’s nothing in that change and the going is as the official description says.”

Chester’s popular meeting kicks off with the Manor House Stables Lily Agnes Stakes at 1.35pm, where the Tom Dascombe-trained Pippy makes his debut for Wayne Rooney.

The day’s feature race, the Chester Cup, is due off at 2.35pm.
