A relatively quiet Friday sees Ascot leading the way with a competitive Listed contest and a 0-105 handicap.
The Sun Racing team have been studying the form and picked out their best bets and each-way picks for today’s cards.
4.10 What A Welcome – Improved very quickly under Patrick Chamings and is sure to be better than this grade in time. Manages to stay in Class 3 company and will benefit from the extra yardage so can win once more of a 4lb higher mark.
3.35 India – Has progressed with each start and was most impressive at Catterick last time out in handicap company. Needs to prove he can do it away from that quirky track but if he can perform to his best than he can make them all go from the front.
3.50 Cabaret Queen – The Skelton duo can add to their already impressive start to the season by taking the feature handicap of the day. Their mare has won her last two in grand style from the front and she’ll be tough to peg back in conditions that should suit very well.
4.25 Havisham – It could be worth chancing Jamie Snowden’s contender, who is having his second start after a wind operation. He will have needed his run last month and now back in handicap company off bottom weight he can take advantage of some out of form rivals.
3.25 Classical Milano – George Bewley’s challenger is two from three at the track and on his penultimate start he put up a nice performance to win from the front. Never at the races last time out but back at his favourite track will be tough to beat in a weak race.
5.10 What A Game – Now only 3lb higher than when winning under this jockey at Sedgefield back in May and he is surely going to be tough to beat if reproducing that. Disappointed last time out but was returning from a break and should strip fitter this time.
6.15 Two Seas – First-time blinkers made a big difference last time out when winning a similar race and under a 6lb penalty he can strike once more. Has landed a good draw and if handling Tapeta as well as Polytrack then he’ll be hard to beat.
7.45 Great Beyond – Landed a handicap over a mile and a half at the track with ease on his penultimate start and despite disappointing at Yarmouth last time it could just be that he’s better on synthetics. Likely to make a bold bid even off a 10lb higher mark.
