King Fontaine should be well suited to the conditions here today. He has been improving of late and this race has a weak enough look about it. Hopefully he can travel a bit better than his last run where he was under pressure a long way out but stayed on for 2nd. He will appreciate the good ground and trip here and in this field is probably value at 9/1

Fine Parchment, hasn’t had a run on decent ground in a long time, and in general has much better results on good ground. He’s had a few decent runs this year on the unsuitable ground but could well improve a lot here, and is well capable of winning of this mark. 15 on Betfair look generous and a few points too big. His last run on good ground was a very decent 4th in a better race than this in March last year of a 13lbs higher mark at Newbury.
1 Point win 15 Betfair
Extraterrestrial could well have a decent chance here at a nice price , given that the race has cut up a bit. He has got a very decent 5lbs claimer on today and is down to a decent mark judging by his second last run. He was poor last time but he is the inconsistent type anyway. 12/1 looks value in this race. If he can reproduce that 2nd last run here, that price will look value.

Rocket Rob, is a selection of mine from his last run in a better race than this at Ascot. He ran an eye-catching race there coming too late to be 7th in a big field. He looks to have a decent draw here and if he can build on that last run he looks a bit of value at 14.5 on Betfair. He is well capable of getting involved of this mark.
1 Point win 14.5 Betfair
