3:15 Ascot

Difficult looking race where i sort of don’t fancy anything, but that said Hoof It looks a bit of value here at 10/1. He has some form on softer ground and has looked good on his last few runs this year. He wouldn’t need to be near his best to take this race, and anything near his 3rd in the Sprint Cup would suffice here.

2 Points win 10/1 Paddy / 365

2:08 Longchamp

Yellow Rosebud will love the soft ground here and looks overpriced at 30 on Betfair. She will need to improve to take a hand in this but Dermot Weld wouldn’t be sending her over without some kind of chance. Her last run on soft ground was her best yet and shes worth a min bet

½ Point win 30 betfair

Ascot 3:50

Pastoral Player has a very decent Ascot Handicap Record particularly on softer ground and despite this being his first handicap run in a while I think he has a very decent chance here of this park. He will need a bit of luck in running as hell be played late but that could well work today in these conditions.

1 Point win 17 Betfair

Redcar 2:50

Dandy Boy, has a bit in hand on this on his best form and I liked the look of his last run which might just signal a return to form shortly. He will like the conditions and in this weaker race 9/1 looks Value, I make him more a 5.1 shot here.

2 Point win 9/1 Ladbrokes / Victor
