MASAMAH opened his account for the season on his first run for Kevin Ryan having been bought out of Ed Dunlop's yard at the end of last season. He was always at the head of affairs having bagged the rail from his number 3 draw and he was never really in any danger in a decent field. The time was a good one compared to other sprints that have taken place at Chester in the past and I can see this horse progressing further. Rated 90 pre race he will go up 7lbs or more for the win, however we could see him racing in Listed company before too long.
Of the others behind Fol Hollow put in his usual solid race, Sohraab last years winner got going all too late as his draw had pushed him out wide on the bend, Look Busy ran well considering it was her first run back and she was runing off 105 and missed the break and Hamish McGonagall has started the season in fine form and should be able to pick up something soon.
