2:19pm Gowran Park (5 Places) KEY COMMANDER - 9/1
The first of two selections for this race, Key Commander has steadily improved over his eight career runs, culminating in an 11 length victory in a novices handicap hurdle a month ago at Punchestown over the same 2m 4f distance. Rises 8lbs which doesn’t look too harsh and should go well in conditions he clearly loves.
2:19pm Gowran Park (5 Places) MISTER FOGPATCHES - 33/1
The other pick in this race is Mister Fogpatches, who finished second at Clonmel over 3m back in October and followed that with victory at Navan a month later (both on soft ground). Ran poorly in two subsequent outings, but a months break should see him refreshed and in the battle for places this afternoon.
3:00pm Ascot (4 Places) AIR HORSE ONE - 12/1
Won the race back in 2017, but was clearly beaten in last years renewal. Form has been solid in recent outings, winning a Class 3 at Ffos Las in November, before picking up a fourth and third in Class 2 trips, including Taunton last month. Clearly enjoys todays conditions and can put themselves into the mix based on recent form.
4:10pm Ascot (5 Places) VAZIANI - 16/1
Form has tended to fluctuate, but cheek-pieces in last two outings may be helping, thanks to a third at Hereford last month and victory at Plumpton last time out, both on heavy ground. Goes up 5lbs this afternoon, so will need to find more, but has every chance, if can continue the upturn in form.
6:30pm Newcastle (4 Places) AIRWAVES - 18/1
Won two novice races to open career in style, but has been poor in handicaps, including last week, on debut for Paul Midgley’s yard at this venue, when last of six and 7 lengths back. 5f trip may help, but needs massive improvement even with a slide down the weights.
