The second qualifying race sets off at 15:17 on Saturday at Ascot and we’ve quizzed some of the greatest minds in racing to get their fancies.
Not sure what we’re on about? You’re going to want to know. It’s your chance to turn £5 into £1m. Get the low down on everything you need to know here.
So, without further ado, here’s out top pundit’s tips for the 15:17 at Ascot on Saturday 21st of November 2020.
Ruby Walsh: MARRACUDJA was third behind Defi Du Seuil in the Grade 1 at Ascot – the Matchbook Clarence House – and he beat Hawk High at Wetherby on the second day of the Christmas meeting there so the form can be there.
Frank Hickey: FIRST FLOW ran really well at Sandown in February when he was second by half a length behind Dolos. This is his first time out off a break on soft ground right-handed, everything is in place for him to run a big race.
Mick Fitzgerald: CAPELAND won this contest last year and Paul Nicholls has put some cheekpieces on to sharpen his jumping up and that can have the desired effect.
Matt Chapman: This won’t be easy for the Bass/Bailey runner FIRST FLOW on debut, but he’s hugely exciting and loves the mud. A natural front-runner, First Flow was always a decent hurdler and promises to be even better over fences. He just has to show that dominating small fields is not all he is good at.
Timeform: Kim Bailey’s FIRST FLOW quickly made up into a smart chaser last term, mopping up a hat-trick of weak races in quick succession. He’s taken to make a winning reappearance and enhance his fine record in this sphere further. Capeland is feared having won this contest last year, along with Irish-raider Abbey Magic, who could have plenty more to offer.
