York 4:00

I’m going to go with a couple of horse that have been coming down the weights but have showed lately that a return might not be far off. Ballesteros is now on a winnable mark well below his last winning mark but is just beginning to show that he may be able to win soon judging by his last run or 2. Free Zone is very similar and has showed improvement lately. I’m going to back both with minimum stakes for and interest in this good 5 furlong sprint. With these sprinters it’s a matter of timing to get the first good run at the time of a decent price.

½ Point win Ballesteros 20/1 Ladbrokes

½ Point win Free Zone 16/1 Lads/Betfair/VC

Newmarket 3:45

Burnt Sugar could easily outrun his huge odds here. He hasn’t had much luck in running a few times this year but the form of his 5th at Ascot earlier this year could not have worked out any better. He can perform of this mark and with a good 5lbs claimer on today 40/1 seems far to big .

Ascot 4:10

Tamayuz star looks too big a price here. He has performed well in decent races off a much higher mark and started this year running well of this mark . He was poor enough last time out but didn’t get the run of the race . Decent 3 lbs claimer on today and in this race from a trainer who can train a winner here 20/1 looks too big.

1 point win 20/1 generally ..

Blue Huzzar might just have found s workable mark here . I watched his last run at Ascot after putting him up at a huge price and looking back on it he was never put in the race and stayed on nicely in a very tough race. He has a good 3 lbs claimer on today and is due to a very nice mark on his old form . He is worth a risk.
