2 pts win HEY JONESY 8/1 (almost all firms)
1 pt win FROZEN ANGEL 40/1 (almost all firms)
Juddmonte Middle Park Stakes

Hey Jonesy beat  the stand side group comfortably when a close third in a valuable sales race at the York August meeting. The level of the form is a few lengths above what some of these have achieved here but needless to say there is plenty still to find out about him and he could be quite smart.Looks the value call here.

Connections of Frozen Angel reportedly knocked back a big offer for him early in the season. Overall, he has been a shade disappointing but on his only start with give in the ground he ran Unfortunately to half a length in France and is too tempting to resist at big odds.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win THUNDERING BLUE 7/1 ( at least this price with nine firms - 8/1 with 3 firms -)

This rapidly improving gelding is impossible for get away from. The amount he had in hand of his rivals last time is in excess of the 6 lb higher rating he runs off today. Admittedly, it is easy to get carried away with visually impressive performances and over rate them, but this one looked mighty interesting coming into the Sandown race and there is nothing to be negative about as he acts with ease in the ground.

Lost - 3 pts
