Ascot 1 55 : PYTHAGOREAN has been desperately unlucky in his last four starts for one reason or another and I just hope he is not drawn on the ”wrong” side here again in stall 2. Surely it cannot happen again. He has a mighty chance and can swoop late to win. The stronger the pace the better for him and off a low weight he looks to have a terrific chance. 1 pt win at 8/1 with Boylesports.
Ascot 3 30. This is one of many wide open handicaps on a great day’s racing all over Britain and Ireland and this race might be the best of them all. I am going to go with the top weight PETHER’S MOON to prevail. He will have to give away chunks to them all ,including the two light weighted favourites towards the foot of the handicap. 1 pt win at 9/1 with Stan James. He is 11/1 with Ladbrokes but I refuse to acknowledge them as they will not take more than a tenner.
Back with late news…..
