A nice Group three class race except for the fact that there's no known front runners which is strange from fourteen runners, I've got two horses a bit clear of the rest and they both ran in the same race at Windsor where the longer priced one finished two places in front of the lower priced one that was staying on that day and this is an easier course so I've got a feeling that LUCKY KRISTALE 10/1 will again finish in front of DIVINE 16/1 but if the bookies were right that time then it might have been a bit of a luck that decides the result between these two, so I'm going with backing both to show a profit.
4:00 York - A big field of eighteen runners and any draw bias in a big field is with the low numbers and the only front runner drawn in single figures is Polski Max who was running well in class four races but has struggled this season in grade three races, I've got Master Bond down as my fourth top rated and Silvanus as third top and both of them have been in reasonable to good form this season, second top is Adams Ale but this one hasn't come into form this season yet so I'm wary of its chances here but top spot goes to NOBLE STORM 20/1 who has been running a bit better than the bare figures show and this step down in class should help and if it gets to the front could be hard to catch in this grade but at the price has to be given as an each way bet.
4:10 Ascot - A fifteen runner class three race with Oh So Sassy and Brave Echo been known to lead and the latter has been running over further lately and from one time it recorded in 2013 it would have a very good chance here plus if it got to the front and dictated the pace it could steal the race from the front, I've got Dominimum my second top rated and Gabbiano my third top rated and both of these are hold up types so should be staying on at the finish but maybe a place is the best they can hope for, my top rated is TAMYUZ STAR 16/1 who can also be held up or track the early pace makers and can probably get the first shot at catching the leaders and then stay on the stronger and at the price has to be an each way bet.
7:00 Chepstow - A class five race with nine participants with three known front runners, Zebs lad is only a three year old but may prefer a softer surface, Swendab is being ridden by Luke Morris so will get plenty of assistance from the saddle and is my third top rated. Two Turtle Doves is my second top rated and this one is capable of springing back to form without warning but don't think its best will be quite good enough here, my top rated and by quite a few spots is the three year old PIXELEEN 7/2 who is also the third possible front runner and if this improving sort does get to the front it may be very hard for the rest to catch.
Lucky Kristale 10/1 2nd
Divine 16/1 6th
Noble Storm 20/1 7th
Tamayuz Star 16/1 5th
Pixeleen 7/2 2nd
