All pricing correct as of 9:00am, 8th August, shorted priced runner, first.
(1) (3:35pm Ascot) CARADOC was 7/1, now 10/3
Won three times last year, including a Class 2 at Newbury last September (1m 2f, good to firm). After an extended break, he returned with a sixth at Epsom last month, before a disappointing ninth at York a fortnight later, when looking one paced. Usually needs a run or two to get back to full sharpness, so should improve here, but minor concerns from that last run, yet market confidence is high.
(2) (4:55pm Haydock) OUTRAGE was 6/1, now 7/2
Without a turf win in four years, although last victory on the all-weather was in January 2019. Has been lightly raced in general, over the last eighteen months, but has looked decent in last two runs, finishing sixth in a Class 3 at Sandown, before a fourth in a Class 4 at Newmarket a fortnight ago, when just 1.5 lengths off the victor. Has a great chance to finally pick up a turf win this afternoon.
(3) (1:40pm Newmarket) STATEMENT was 11/1, now 4/1
Cost 100,000 Euros as a yearling and first foal to Fact Of Folklore who won three times and placed in listed company. Martyn Meade has a decent strike rate with 2yo debutants and this looks another potential winner here, with plenty of market interest.
(4) (4:15pm Cork) PEARLS GALORE was 14/1, now 9/2
Decent performances in maidens at Chantilly for Freddy Head, before moving to Paddy Twomey’s yard. Picked up the victory at Limerick on debut appearance for new stable, taking the spoils impressively by 3 lengths. Looks sharp and no reason why she cannot go close again. Market interest speaks volumes.
(5) (12:40pm Ascot) SPIRIT MIXER was 10/1, now 5/1
Backed in this morning, this Andrew Balding newcomer, is by Frankel, out of Arabian Queen, who won the Juddmonte Stakes back in 2015. No issue with pedigree and with Oisin Murphy onboard should have solid hopes, in a very competitive race.
