1.50 Ascot – Glenlaurel (1pt win – 6/1 generally)

Lezoo will rightly prove popular here, but I want to take a chance on the raw ability of GLENLAUREL, who shaped with significant promise on debut at Thirsk and put her race to bed in the style of a useful horse. The form of that race and the speed figure has a way to go to lay up with the favourite, but she won as she liked and from the rear of the field off a sedate gallop.

She looks more than useful, and she is impeccably bred, and with her debut performance under her belt, she should have learned a good deal. She is bred to stay further than this, and a strong pace will undoubtedly suit her.


13.50 Princess Margaret Keeneland Stakes (Group 3) (Fillies)
Result
6th 5/1


2.12 Newcastle – Double Dealing (1pt win – 9/1 generally)

There’s a chance that DOUBLE DEALING may need this outing after being off for 338 days, but he is so well-handicapped that it’s too good an opportunity to miss. His latest run when third at Windsor may have come too soon after an excellent second to Bilhilly at Lingfield.

That rival now rated 16lbs higher in the handicap, while the fourth from that race now rated 11lbs higher (third yet to run). Prior to that, he was no match for The Attorney at Leicester but ran on very strongly from off the pace to finish third, and the winner is now rated 14lbs higher and the second 10lbs higher. All the while, he remains on the same handicap rating of 82, which means he is eligible today to drop in grade into a Class 4 race for this return.

He made his debut here at Newcastle when an eye-catching third over six furlongs, but providing he is fit and well, he is one of if not the best-handicapped horses in the contest.


14.12 Gainford Group Beeswing Ladies Day Handicap


2.40 York – Silver Samurai (0.5pt win – 5/1 generally)

2.40 York – Venturous (0.5pt win – 10/1 Betfred, Boylesports, bet365, Betway)

This race should suit SILVER SAMURAI better than the one at Ascot when drawn out of it, and with the strong pace on offer, he can get back to winning ways with optimum conditions. The manner of his victory at Haydock suggests there is more to come from him at this distance.

VENTUROUS won this race last year at lofty odds, and he gave the impression he was about to strike with a fast finishing effort at Ascot behind Mountain Peak. He was given too much to do there but is likely to get a much stronger pace to aim at today, and all of his six-furlong wins have come when stepping up from five furlongs on his latest outing. He is well handicapped under today’s conditions.


14.40 Sky Bet Dash Handicap
Result
7th 5/1

3.00 Ascot – Accidental Agent (0.5pt win – 25/1 Bet365, Paddy Power, Betfair, BetVictor)

3.00 Ascot – Documenting (0.5pt win – 33/1 generally)

Loads to like in here, but ACCIDENTAL AGENT is too big of a price, especially with the draw in stall 19 likely to be in his favour should he get a good pace to aim at. He was on the wrong side of the track in the Bunbury Cup but ran a scorcher to be touched off by just three lengths. He returns to Ascot, where his last performance resulted in Group 1 defeat but a previous second in the Victoria Cup. He carries a big weight, but it doesn’t seem to matter to him, and there is one last big pot in this monster.

DOCUMENTING also gets a shout after getting a poor ride from an inexperienced rider at York, and although back up in grade, he does at least have the services of Jason Hart. He was a good ninth in the Buckingham Palace Stakes, and despite the handicapper relenting, he has been knocking on the door. He is remarkably consistent, so he gets a small vote.


15.00 Moet & Chandon International Stakes (Heritage Handicap)

15.00 Moet & Chandon International Stakes (Heritage Handicap)
Result
5th 33/1


3.07 Newmarket – King Of Jungle (2pts win – 6/1 bet365, 5/1 generally)

KING OF JUNGLE ran a career-best when narrowly touched off by our selection Lequinto at Windsor, and given that race ran a good time figure, and it was just his first attempt on a fast surface, there should be more to come.

He is progressing at a rate of knots, and he has only had two suitable attempts on turf. We have not seen the best of him yet.


15.07 Glenn Roeder Race Day Handicap
Result
7th 5/1


3.15 York – Dubai Honour (3pts win – 7/4 generally)

DUBAI HONOUR makes plenty of appeals down in grade for the first time since scoring at Longchamp last term, and he was better than the bare result in a slowly run Sheema Classic in March. He ran a blinder in Hong Kong back in December, and his Champion Stakes narrow defeat is easily the best form on offer.

He is the strongest stayer in this field, and with pace likely to come from Claymore and Dark Moon Rising, he should have the contest set up. Claymore dictated a slowly run affair at Royal Ascot – 10 lengths slower than Dubai Future – and will surely drift in the betting.

Dubai Future rates the biggest danger, but the selection should outstay him on this long home straight. Dubai Honour is the class act in the field, and he should take some stopping on route to the Juddmonte.


15.15 Sky Bet York Stakes (Group 2)

3.35 Ascot – Torquator Tasso (1pt win – 12/1 Will Hills, Coral, Boylesports, Ladbrokes)

I am baffled as to why the 2021 Arc winner is a double-figure price. He tends to need his first run of the season each year, having been beaten three times on the back of a break but has form figures of 111212121 outside of the reappearance effort.

He was a big eye-catcher last term on good ground when narrowly denied by Aplinista (rated 118) in Germany when denied a clear passage but stayed on strongly, and there will be fewer horses finishing this contest as strong as him. He was a big-priced winner of the Arc (72/1), which might explain the market writing him off here, but there will be very few opportunities to back such a winner at this price in the future. Mishrif hasn’t shaped to my eye that this 1m4f distance is his ideal trip while Plyledriver and Broome are not the strongest stayers at the distance either.

Emily Upjohn looked useful in the Oaks, but this is easily her strongest test against the boys, and Westover lacks pace, in my opinion. Westover is in mind for the St Leger, but his recent Irish Derby win has been blown out of proportion and this rates a tougher test.
