What is the Chester Vaase? 

The Chester Vase is a Group 3 race run over 1m 4f and 63 yards and takes place during Chester's May meeting. Attracting some of the premier three-year-old colts and geldings in training, this Group 3 contest at the Roodee is one of the early season trials for the Epsom Derby, with those horses with Classic aspirations looking for a confidence-building victory before trying to claim Classic glory at Epsom Downs later in the season.

First run in 1907, the first running of the race ending in a dead-heat, but since then it's grown in stature and the most memorable winner of the race came in 1981 when the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Shergar bounded to glory before going on to become a runaway winner of the Derby. More recently, Aidan O'Brien has been a dominant figure saddling a host of winners in the race, and in 2017 Wings Of Eagles landed success in the race before emulating the mighty Shergar and claiming Derby glory at Epsom Downs.

What happened in the 2019 Chester Vase?

Unleashing a blistering turn of pace in the closing stages of the 2019 Chester Vase, Sir Dragonet threw his hat into the Derby reckoning with an emphatic eight-length success to hand Aidan O'Brien more success in the Group 3 race. Pulling clear of stablemate Norway, Sir Dragonet showed a fine turn of foot in rain-softened ground with Dashing Willoughby staying on best of the rest to grab third position.
