3 pts win  CAIUS MARCIUS 9/1 ( at least four firms inc PPower and Victor)
Bet With Ascot Handicap Hurdle

The Nicky Richards horses are in good fettle at the moment. It is a yard that does not overface it's runners so it is quite significant that this one makes the journey down south today. He's up almost a stone in the ratings for his Market Rasen success but the hike is justified, as it was a lifetime best from one that's been transformed by the cheekpieces and he merits serious consideration today.

Lost - 3 pts

3 pts win GUSTAV KLIMT 7/1 (Ladbrokes, Coral, Boylesports)
Breeders Cup Mile

This one's day may have come at last. He's a frustrating sort who has run some crackers in the top company and steps back up in trip here after two excellent runs in the Haydock Sprint Cup and Prix de la Foret. He's versatile regarding the ground and given the race pans out without compromising his chance, he should give an excellent account of himself.
