Ascot Friday Preview - 05/10/2018

ascot offer


Game Player 3/1

The first of six races from Ascot, Berkshire is the Veolia Handicap, a class four event over 7 furlongs, and GAME PLAYER can complete a quick-fire hat-trick.

Has progressive form in winning his last two at Newmarket and at Lingfield on the AW, and is surely a danger to all following a 6lb rise.

This gelding out of Dark Angel, will be sporting the colours of Defoe, who lines up in the Arc on Sunday for this trainer and jockey.


George 10/1 E/W

The second race on the card is Mar-Key Group Classified Stakes and GEORGE who has been prolific for Sylvester Kirk this year, is of interest now back at this trip.

He did too much too soon when last seen over 7 furlongs at Chelmsford. He was narrowly beaten at Sandown the run before over this trip, and should see him back to his best.

Has three career wins to his name, including two in 2018, and should be in the mix for Jason Watson, who takes off a precious 3lbs.


Green Power 16/1 E/W

One of our biggest priced selections of the day comes in the Original Harrogate Water Handicap, and GREEN POWER who failed to fire on heavy ground at Ayr last time, will look to rediscover his better form on a better surface.

He can be forgiven for his run in the Ayr Silver Cup as he was never involved, and if you look past that, he finished a very close fifth here at the start of September.

He has a Shergar Cup win to his name as well when he won the main sprint race back in August, and the venue at Berkshire seems to bring about his best. Joe Fanning aboard.


Sevenna Star 10/1 E/W

The feature race of the day is the Londonmetric Noel Murless Stakes, a listed contest over the 1 mile-and-6-furlongs, which sees the return of SEVENNA STAR. He made no impact in group company the last twice – including 10th in the Epsom Derby behind Masar.

This looks much more realistic, and comes up against some very interesting horses. Ghostwatch now upped in trip finish second here two weeks ago, Mekong who struck in terrible conditions at Haydock on Sprint Cup day, and Thimbleweed who was a BF on handicap debut last time out.

But, Sevenna Star, for messers Gosden and Dettori, can get back to his best having looked so promising at the start of the year.


What A Welcome 7/2

You simply cannot take your eyes away from WHAT A WELCOME in the Canaccord Genuity Gordon Carter Handicap, who has won seven of his last eight races, including here in eye-catching fashion at the start of September.

He is all the while been progressing and stamina seemingly won him that day over 1m4f. Up another 4lb, back up in trip, but will be hard to beat, especially if he sweeps late like usual.


Cliffs of Capri 15/8

The card closes with the Amateur Jockeys Association Handicap – a class 3 for Gentleman Amateurs over 7 furlongs, and CLIFFS OF CAPRI looks the one to side with.

Solid form since fitted with cheek pieces, including a course and distance success back in July.

Must contend with top weight, but in with a great shout. Mr Alex Ferguson rides for Jamie Osborne.
