Selected York – good to firm on this flat and galloping track
12.25 Hard to pick between debut winner Seven Brothers, who carries a penalty and win came on soft ground , against Gumdrop, Unbutton and Andronicus Beau who have bring decent form to the table, but none have run on ground this quick .
2.10 There’s been money for the well treated course winner Firmament , but still not sufficiently convincing of late. Dancing Vega is very interesting as she sluiced in on debut for her good stable and after a break, was fav for a Group 3 , but was beaten out of sight. She stays with the same connections so could be well in at the weights, but risky . the veteran Sir Maximillan continues to tun well and is well worth his lofty rating of 91, which he won off last year at this trip at Chester . This is a rare run at this trip, but he is 1 from 2 at the distance and has both the ground and track in his favour and Andre Atzeni a most positive booking . Tintoretto landed a double on the all weather and was far from disgraced at Epsom off this mark last time and is another lively longshot .
½ pt ew Sir Maximilian @ 16/1 ¼ pt ew Tintoreto – ¼ pt rev fc
2.45 Jonah Jones was well punted last time and did little wrong when 3rd in a big field at Ascot The longer trip is a positive for this C&D winner and generously stays on the same mark and Dettori rides.
½ pt win Jonah Jones @ 5/2
3.20 Franconia was awesome winning her 2nd start and this Class 1 is at her mercy , but is 8/13.
3.55 PREMIUM RACE
4.30 An open finale but the form of Tangled’s recent win has been boosted and a nice ew play .
¼ pt ew Tangled @ 7/1
Selected Ascot – good to firm on this stiff and galloping track
12.45 The fav is Tenbury wells , a ready winner on polytrack last time and previously a good 4th on turf and that form puts him on a workable mark today but on drying ground I give the nod to Her Majesty’s Fruition , 3rd in a small field last time ,but the 2nd horse has won well since and he’s down in the weights .
¼ pt win Fruition @ 9/2
1.20 This has a winnable look as I was with See The lyte last time in a similar heat when getting the better of Rose Hip , but at the weights , slight preference for the reliable Chitra . she Can Boogie showed more last time and makes a quick reappearance .
¼ pt win Chitra @ 6/1
1.55 Magic G sluiced in last time in a winnable sprint and more to do under a hefty penalty . mountain Peak did nothing wrong when 2nd over C&d last time and Ryan Moore rides today .
¼ pt win Mountain Peak @ 4/1
2.30 This has a winnable look to it with Country penalised for a recent win on easy ground and Sam Cooke, who was entitled to do better on his comeback spin , also happier in the mud. Tempted by a longshot in Protected Guest who has some good form over C&D.
¼ pt ew Protected Guest @ 25/1
3.05 A Group 3 for fillies and the fav is the admirable Miss O’Connor , who was 4 from 4 last season, but all wins came on soft ground so can only watch on her first try on quick turf . Agincourt is a tough and consistent mare with good form here but I’m with a lively longshot in Iconic Choice, not out of this at the weights and this race could be run to suit her strong finish .
¼ pt ew Iconic choice @ 22/1
4.15 PREMIUM RACE
4.50 The lightly raced Ajax Tavern made a right fist of it last time in s hot looking handicap at Donny, when front rank all the way and kept on boldly to be beaten narrowly . She generously stays on the same mark and worth risking on a stiffer track . The fav Mars Rising did well last time but a bit to prove on quicker turf .
½ pt ew Ajax Tavern @ 8/1
Selected Cartmel – good to soft on this sharp track with a long galloping run in .
12.50 David Pipe has a great record here when making the 540 mile round trip and saddles I’lletyouknow , a decent 2nd recently on easy ground and this looks a cracking opportunity .
¾ pt win I’llletyouknow @ 11/8
1.25 Jmmy Moffat is the trainer to follow here and he saddles Aptly Put , who has good form over C&D on easy ground off around this mark , but just a small play returning from a break with usual aids missing .
¼ pt ew Aptly Put @ 6/1
2.00 this looks a match but the nod goes to the ex-Irish Tango echo Charlie, a good 2nd on his debut for his new stable recently .
½ pt win Tango echo Charlie @ 6/5
2.35 This has a most winnable look to it with the back to form lough salt a bit to do down in trip . Takingitallin was consistent last season and came to hand early and this point winner could be even better over fences.
½ pt win Takingitallin @ 7/1
4.20 PREMIUM RACE
4.55 Chocolate Noir runs this C&D really well and comes here in good form. He’s at his best though when dominating and quite a few here like to lead, but when last successful here did dispute a strong pace well .
½ pt win Chocolate Noir @ 11/4
Selected wolver- all weather – tapeta
1.10 It should be a case of how far for the decent Jojo Rabbit from the best of the draw and is a C&d winner, but is 1/4 today .
1.40 lucky Lodge is a terrifically reliable veteran who is on a workable mark and runs this track well and wont be far away again .
¼ pt ew Lucky Lodge @ 9/1
4.00 Kupa River had a winning opportunity last time but put in a poor one. He likes this track and is well drawn. Nice ew play in a winnable contest .
¼ p tew Kupa River @ 11/1
5.05 a weak contest and a clear opportunity for the consistent Gold standard who has good enough form over C&d to nail a deserved win .
½ pt win Gold standard @ 6/4
Selected The Curragh – good to soft on this undulating , galloping and stiff track
2.55 The very wonderful Magical is the 2nd best mare around, only behind wondermare Enable and this will be a doddle, but she is 2/7 but will appeal to big hitters
3.30 Winner Takes itall is the short priced fav but his recent win came after a lengthy break and could well bounce, especially with a hefty penalty . halimi is a reliable and consistent top notch handicapper and another good run likely .
¼ pt ew Halimi @ 7/1
4.05 Ducky Mallon comes into this in good form and runs this track well . On a fair mark and a nice ew play.
¼ pt ew Ducky Mallon @ 13/2
