Which is one is Chester again, I always get it mixed up with Carlisle. Chester the one with the stiff uphill finish, right?

Chester can't be that bad a track, top trainers have
sent top class horses there.

While some horses that are drawn wide develop mysterious illnesses overnight and are withdrawn, an outside draw is by no means fatal -and indeed a slow trapper in a low draw can find itself stuck behind a wall of horses having to switch round them or waiting for the cutaway if there is one. Stweart Simpson used to reckon that it was a good course for a topweight with a turn of foot for races between 7f and 12f if the ground was good or better . A lot better viewing than the straight mile at Donny.

Been to every UK racecourse. This would be at the bottom of my list in terms of value and racecourse experience.

Chester was on my bucket list of courses to visit but after reading the reviews from my peers on here over the last few years it's now never going to happen. It sounds absolutely dreadful to put it mildly.

it is, but should not be. it has many advantages and attractions but all gets submerged by the numbers. and as for chesterbet...

last time i was there as a notfair guest and their box is bang on the line. i assumed it would be full of charming civilised people like me. not a bit of it. some prize erbert had his laptop out on the balcony and was hoovering as they went past. surprised nobody stopped him. the sherbet though, was excellent. i doubt it is nowadays.

but once you venture out of there its a scrum, and no fun at all. spent day 2 in the champagen tent and barely saw a horse despite the fact you could hear them rumbling past 10 yards away.

I went once with my mates at an evening meeting and the place was full of drunks with their plastic beer mugs thrown all over the course. Even though I got all my money back in the last race I vowed never to return and that was about 30 years ago.

The best course to visit if you are an owner. You are well looked after and they put other racecourses to shame.

Not in my top 50, can't get nothing right there. Think Top Cees was last time I had a proper winner.
Town too small for a good night out too,always had better fun in Shrewsbury.

Well it’s all about opinions I enjoy this fixture and have missed not been allowed to go these last two years ,41 years ago I saw Shergar win the vase a few years later old vic,unfuwain,belmez and toulon,all won the vase in the years that have passed the winners may not have been as good although ruler of the world did go on to win the derby,I accept the Saturday fixtures are for avoiding but these three days a very enjoyable.

Had one of my worst days racing there at the 1975 May meeting. I had been doing a mini-tour of racing tracks and had done really well but Chester that day was a nightmare. I backed every race and don't think I got one in the frame, I remember a Walwyn 3-y-o was a strong fancy and Swell Fellow in one of the handicaps.
It was of three disaster days in my memory bank. The other two courses were Cheltenham and Epsom but I have had good days at those courses so don't hold grudges for them but never been back to Chester racecourse.

I would not go there but it is a fun track to watch. You are not obliged to back any of them.

Lucky enough to receive two  Chester tickets courtesy of Betfair a good few years back the tickets were £28 each , went to book two rail tickets only to find they cost £154 , sent the tickets back and watched the races on here , that was the closet i ever got to Chester on a race day LaughLaughLaugh

Probably cheaper in a taxi for two. How anyone can justify railways I can't imagine. Very expensive and heavily subsidised by tax payers as well!

About 10 years ago I was offered a place in private box by purpleDaq.  But I didn't accept because I had no idea who these other people would be.  Perhaps they would be young executives from London or Dublin who worked for Daq and I would just be filling in a spare place and would have a miserable afternoon.  I think they just selected me because I was the only regular player in that area.  And I was also my Dad's full time carer at the time and that was another reason not to waste an afternoon.
