The first event of the day at Ascot is the Listed Rous Stakes over 5f and we are taking a bit of a swing at one with the Ed Walker trained Came From The Dark.
The six year old was an expensive 480,000gns purchase as a yearling but has provided some superb days for his connections over the years and this can be another one.
Seen four times last year he started his campaign off at Musselburgh of 5f and was a good third of 13 behind Jabbarockie and Zarzyni who he was giving weight away to that day.
Sent to Newbury next time out he got off the mark for the season, seeing off talented sprinters Garrus, King's Lynn and Tis Marvellous to land the spoils.
Looking to make it back to back wins he went down by a neck to Godolphin's Lazuli at Newmarket, with Appleby's horse franking the form in better races throughout last year.
Came From The Dark rounded off last season by winning the Group Three Coral Charge at Sandown in July from Arecibo and Happy Romance.
This season has not gone to plan running twice and finishing 10th on both occasions, firstly in the Group Three Palace House Stakes at Newmarket which he won last year and then last time out in the Group Two Temple Stakes.
He has not been seen since with May with something obviously amiss but having had wind surgery and giving his best performances around this time of year, he looks interesting at a double figure price.
