The feature event on the card at Ascot is the London Gold Cup over three miles and the horse that takes our eye at the weights is Tom Lacey's Johnbb.
The seven year old has a progressive profile and for is age is still. very unexposed, especially over staying trips.
Making his seasonal debut last season in November at Wetherby he was an easy winner of a 2m3f Handicap Chase by four lengths.
Back over the same course and distance in a tougher event he unfortunately fell and was given close to four months off the track.
Returning at Aintree in April he stepped up to 3m1f and put in an excellent performance to finish a narrow second to the highly talented Happygolucky for Kim Bailey.
Running off only 3lb higher for this event makes him a player, especially receiving weight from most of his rivals.
