The Punt Daily: Tom Collins with two to follow on Friday
Chief Ironside(8.30 Newmarket)
William Jarvis rates this three-year-old very highly and he rewarded connections when hacking up by three lengths in a Chester maiden on his penultimate start. That form stacks up well with the second, Infrastructure, winning a Salisbury handicap off a mark in the low 80s since. Chief Ironside was last seen running in one of the toughest three-year-old handicaps of the season, the London Gold Cup, and performed extremely well to finish third behind Communique. That race always chucks out a few winners and this handicap rates a much easier opportunity.
Richard Fahey and Marwan Koukash runners are always worth looking out for at Chester and Penwortham, who has won twice at this track from eight starts, is beginning to look well treated and can provide his powerful connections with another winner. After a disappointing reappearance run here at the start of May, he finished a creditable six over the same course and distance at a huge price on his penultimate start, when sent wide off the final bend, before running over an inadequate trip last time out. Back at seven furlongs off a falling mark, he can capitalise.
