15:55 Ascot

Imperial Guest was in my view very unlucky yesterday and although it seems silly to think he can run well again just a day later, the race didn’t look to take much out of him. I don’t think he’ll run if he not about to put up a decent show, and I just think he is a horse on his way back to good form. The better ground this time compared to what he has faced in his other big 7f runs a Ascot earlier this year should really help and he worth a small bet at 33/1 EW with 5 places.

Damika has been getting back to form lately, and this has the look of a weak enough race she he may be able to dominate. This tough 5 furlongs might just be about right. The win at Nottingham and close 6th at Doncaster next run are both decent and give him a definite chance here. 14/1 looks about 4 points too big.

Pravda Street is one of my old favourites and on the form of his 7th in the Victoria Cup of 6lbs higher would be easily enough to take a hand in this weaker race. He was poor last time which is probably the reason for the big price, but he is back 1 furlong in trip from that run and looks better in general on softer ground. 22 on Betfair certainly looks quite a few points too big and worth a bet.

Qulinton won this last year of a higher mark, and I’m just going to ignore his runs since then as id be pretty sure that today is the day yet again. He showed a bit of a return to some kind of form last time out when he stayed on for 4th in a Hurdle, and the fact that he has been hurdling in his last few runs makes me think they have found his right mark over fences after a long series of poor runs. The trainer is well capable of getting one ready to be spot on for a particular day and the way he walked away with this race last year must surly give him a great chance of a repeat.
