Friday 16th update

Going to quickly go through my notes for four races at Ascot this afternoon.

1.20: Back By Midnight impressed last time but needs to get more fluency into his jumping. Two potential dangers if he doesn’t cause his own problems are Mr Spingspong and Red Devil Star. Both of which in varying degress need to get back old form.

Mr Spingspong has his first start for Brian Ellison. Favourably handicapped if the switch reinvigorates the 9y.o. Has conditions to suit.

Red Devil Star finished third to Back By Midnight last time which was a slight disappointment on his promising second at Wincanton the run before.

1.55: A race worth noting as all six can improve. Captain Forez of most interest. His debut at Newbury suggested he could make up to be a decent performer.

2.30: Politologue 11/10 my tissue. Not as clear cut as the market currently suggests.



3.05: Ballyarthur is progressive. But too short at the current 7/4. 5/2 my tissue.


Back tomorrow just after 12.00.
