15:05 Ascot (Qualifying Bet):
Bet £10 on SPACE BLUES to win

Classic form is represented here by 1000 Guineas fourth Angel’s Hideaway. She was no match for SPACE BLUES at Epsom next time who beat Urban Icon with a bit in hand. So Perfect also comes into the reckoning, a comfortable winner of a Group 3 over six furlongs in Ireland for Aidan O’Brien.

15:40 Ascot (Free Bet):
Bet £10 on DEFOE to win

All eyes will be on 2018 Epsom Derby Masar as he makes his long-awaited return to action. A 385-day absence will be difficult to overcome, especially on this ground. DEFOE showed an impressive turn of foot to cut down Kew Gardens who looked certain to win the Coronation Cup at Epsom. He holds several of his rivals on that evidence and can make his superior fitness tell.

16:20 Ascot (Free Bet):
Bet £10 on CITY LIGHT to win

The feature race of the day has been given a boost by the surprise declaration of Tuesday’s King’s Stand Stakes winner Blue Point. Charlie Appleby’s five-year-old beat Battaash in that five-furlong dash for the second year running and is equally effective over six furlongs. Invincible Army was impressive at York while Sands Of Mali has run well here in the past.

Bound For Nowhere ran well in fourth a year ago but faces a tough task from stall one. He could provide the early pace for last year’s runner-up CITY LIGHT, freshened up with a good run at Maisons-Laffitte at the end of April.

17:00 Ascot (Free Bet):
Bet £5 on SOUTHERN HORSE each way

The six-furlong cavalry charge is the last big handicap of the week with a maximum 28 runners spread across the track. Recon Mission sneaks in with his 5lbs penalty for winning at York last Saturday and will probably be the hare up the favoured stands’ side rail. 

The one who could be well in here is Jim Bolger’s SOUTHERN HORSE, runner-up in a Group 1 in Argentina in December. There are no form lines to compare but he has been given an entry in the July Cup and is drawn in the adjacent stall to Recon Mission.

Victoria Cup winner Cape Byron is respected on his first start at six furlongs and Baron Bolt could run better than his odds suggest. He has the cheek-pieces back on for the first time since dead-heating for the Ayr Gold Cup in September and could reward each-way support at long odds.
