Waady ran a cracker behind Take Cover at Newbury and a reproduction of that would be good enough in here. He’s ran at Ascot only once and that was in the Grade 1 Kings Stand where he ran 2L behind Profitable, which is also a very strong piece of form. I reckon he can get the ball rolling on our Saturday acca.
Waldgeist was second in the French Derby, behind Brametot. Also, in the Irish Derby, he was beaten 2L by non other than Capri!!
Dropping into Grade 3 level is an easy option, add to that he’s top rated, so he’s another at the top of the market who should oblige.
We need to find an each way punt in here as the top two in the market are on a recovery mission in a big way. Both Blue Point and Magical Memory should give a bold show yet both ran poorly last time.
For that reason Projection is the call, having ran a blinder in the Wokingham when winning the race on his side over course and distance, and he’s a nice price to boot.
Flaming Spear failed dismally at Haydock on bottomless ground, and provided it’s no worse than good to soft at Ascot he can bounce back.
He made a good field of handicappers look decidedly slow at York the time before, he won’t get many more tries in hdcp company before he has to stick in Group races, let’s take advantage.
Marie of Lyon is bidding for the three-timer after looking good when winning at both Brighton and Pontefract.
She managed to make all last time and on this easier 6f compared to Pontefract I think it could be a case of Point&Shoot!
We have Ryan Moore on top of a filly in form and he can let her slide on the front, what a beautiful combination.
As with lots of these in here, they seem to of taken it in turns to beat each other so a lot will depend on how the race unfolds as to who will come out on top.
The selection is flexible as regards tactics and that’s our trump card, Usherette has winning form on the track over a furlong further and at around 7/1 she looks the value.
