1.5pts win  HALLING'S COMET 12/1 ( Betfair and Betdaq) Betfred Bonus King Stakes
1.5pts win BLUE SURF 14/1( 4 firms and Exchanges) Betfred Bonus King Stakes

A cracking race to get stuck into. Halling's Comet was betaen at Newmarket by a horse that should have won here the other day. He is the type that his yard excel with and stepped up in trip is open to considerable improvement.

Blue Surf is an interesting runner for his local trainer who has won this in the past. He looked an improving type when winning at Windsor on his seasonal debut and should give a very good account of himself.

Lost - 3pts

3pts win SIMENON 4/1 (Generally available) Artemis Goodwood Cup

This likeable gelding was in terrific heart when winning twice at the Royal meeting and with no stars in this division at the moment and those that ran in the Ascot Gold Cup looking beatable, he has an excellent chance of taking this event. Any easing in the ground would be ideal but he has run well on fastish ground at this venue when Andrew Balding had him.
