3 pts win BLUE FOR YOU SP

3.00 York

This New Approach gelding deserves one of these prizes. Fully proved himself in this big field scenario when runner up to a stable companionin the big mile handicap at Goodwood after blatantly failing to get the rub of the green. Can reverse that form and go very close if the cards fall right this time.

3 pts win ALPINISTA SP

3.35 York

A reliable Frankel mare who won three G1's in Germany last season and took the scalp of the subsequent Arc winner. Looked better than ever when winning the Grand Prix De Saint Cloud on her reappearance, is able to produce her optimum on quick ground, and can confirm her Arc credentials here.

3 pts win MIMIKYU SP

4.10 York

Always an enjoyable race to get stuck into and this homebred Dubawi filly from a female line long developed by her owner appeals as one who has been targeted at this, last seen when a wide margin winner of a small field Newmarket handicap in the last week in June. Very much one to be interested in.

3 pts win ONE NATION SP

4.45 York

An overall progressive son of Dubawi who although is not one of the yard's potential showcase players could still develop into a Group class animal and there is no reason why he should not give an excellent account of himself here.

3 pts win MOBADRA SP 

5.20 York

An Oasis Dream filly lightly raced for one of her age. Looked as one who could be going on an upward curve when successful at Chelmsford in July, and must be shortlisted here off a 4 lb higher rating on her return to turf,

2.25 York

A typically fascinating renewal of this event. This Dubawi colt is from a female line, highly successful at producing smart performers from generation to generation and this one can consolidate that fact. The form of his Newmarket race has yet to be tested, the time was nothing special, but he created a highly pleasing impression and it's more than likely he's going to be a class act.

3.00 York

This thriving son of Dubawi is not short of pace so it won't be a worry if they fail to go a decent kick. Having said that his stamina is fully proven, his overall profile is hard to fault and his weight  and measures form in handicaps is up to this sort of Group level. Impossible to impose.

Lost - 3 pts 


4.10 York

This Frankel mare does not have many miles on the clock for one of her age. She runs well here and shaped extremely well at the Dante meeting. Looks to have been targeted at this and while ideally suited by some give, she has won on good ground and even if the heavens don't  open there is likely to be a good cushion underneath here. Plenty to like about her chances.

Lost - 3 pts 


4.45 York

A progressive daughter of Shamardal who drops back to the minimum trip for the first time but is unlikely to be found wanting pace wise - best trusting connections judgment on that one. The Brighton race she won was pretty hot for that venue and she'll go close to defying her 3 lb rise in the ratings

3 pts win COROEBUS  15/8 ( at least four firms inc Hills, Coral and Ladbrokes)

2.55 Deauville 

This top class son of Dubawi looked an above average 2,000 Guineas winner on the day and although he failed to confirm that impression when scrambling home at Ascot despite having things go more his way than most, this straight mile here should enable him to produce his optimum which should be enough to get the better of Inspiral.

3 pts win WEN MOON SP

1.40 Ripon

A Mehmas colt who won here last time without having the smoothest of journeys.. The runner up has run too bad to be true since for the form to be marked down and this one appeals as an animal who will improve on the bare form of the performance to be a big force in this better contest.

Lost - 3 pts 


2.10 Newmarket 

This filly is a steadily progressing daughter of Australia who is a reliable model and can handle tactical affairs. Looks to have more to offer and can defy her reassessed rating.

Lost - 3 pts 

3 pts win CHINDIT SP

3.35 Newbury

A likeable son of Wootton Bassett who finds G1 company beyond the limit of his talents. This looks a winnable event for him and it will be disappointing and surprising if he fails to get involved in a big way.

Lost - 3 pts 

3 pts win RAISE YOU SP

4.40 Curragh

Search For A Song might be slightly short condition wise and this looks readymade for Raise You who would still prove hard to beat if they all ran to their optimum. A son of Lope De Vega, he has improved for the step up to middle distances and appeals as one who will improve even more at his first attempt at today's trip. Although now a six year old he's looked better than ever this season.

Won 5/4  + 3.75 pts

3 pts win TEMPUS SP

4.15 Salisbury 

Although this Kingman gelding was beaten decisively by Modern News in a similar small field event earlier in the season, they arrive renew rivalry here on the back of an ordinary performance by the Appleby horse- while Tempus has since run two consecutive crackers at Ascot. He is effective in the small field scenario and is the value call of the two.

Won 11/4 + 8.25 pts 


7.20 Leopardstown 

This son of Teofilo has been tried over a varying range of trips, some at the highest level, but looked better than ever when winning the Meld here last time. The drop back by a furlong will be no problem and he holds an outstanding chance.

Won 11/8 + 4.12  pts

3 pts win NOVAKAI SP

3.40 Newmarket 

Judging by the way the third home has run since, this Lope De Vega filly may have beaten trees at Doncaster but it may pay to rely on the visual impression given - she was undoubtedly a few tiers above her opponents and could well be up to this big step up in class, with confidence increased by the fact that the yard won the Chesham with a newcomer.

Lost - 3 pts 


4.15 Curragh

This extremely likeable son of Mehmas was not ideally placed during the running of the Coventry, and without trying to take anything away from the winner who got first run, you are left with the impression that there is not as much between them as the bare form suggests. Added to this is that Persian Force has looked better than ever at Newmarket since and it would be no surprise if the Ascot tables were turned here.
