16/1 Favorite!

Two races for us at Ascot this afternoon where the going is Good to Soft. The other two jump cards at Haydock and Ffos Las are more exposed to the bad weather and the ground at both could deteriorate considerably.

2.45 Ascot

Three runners return from a break including The Clock Leary, who is fairly handicapped. He comes from the Venetia Williams yard who have had two winners from five runners this week. A stable who seem to specialise in horses who like a bit of extra cut in the ground.

Fox Appeal has been below form on his last two starts, but will appreciate a return to a right-hand track.

Present Man form is slightly suspect and he hasn’t always found for pressure.

Difficult race to evaluate with total confidence but I would keep The Clock Leary onside. I make him the 3/1 fav.

3.55 Ascot

A lot of unknown quantities to this race, not least the market leader Cyrname  making his British debut after three races in France, the last of those being ten months ago.

Favorite Girl won on the flat recently and looks overpriced. The current 16/1 offers some value.

Poor quality and changing ground have been key contributors to the lack of decent betting opportunities so far this week. However we have had one bet, a strong one for a very impressive winner whose progress I will be following.
