3.00 Ascot – Crystal King @ 7/4
Caught the eye last time at Ayr when given an easy time in the closing stages having not got a clear run. He has already beaten Sleeping Lion this season and this race today looks a lot less competitive than his previous two so he is taken to win for jockey Ryan Moore and trainer Sir Michael Stoute.
6.20 Wexford – First One Dana @ 7/1
The 3m1f trip at Roscommon last time looked to have stretched this 4yo but dropping back to 2m4f here looks a lot more likely to suit. With young jockey Sean O’Keefe taking 7lbs off his back he has a very light weight which is another positive. Taking all this into account he should go close in what doesn’t look the strongest of races.
7.50 Wexford – Shawshank @ 5/2
Shawshank makes his handicap chase debut for local trainer Paul Nolan. He is rated quite a bit higher over hurdles and given that he has had only 3 starts over the larger obstacles he looks sure
to show improved form from what we seen of him over fences to date.
