Chesham Stakes

Out In Yorkshire (0.5pt EW 66/1)

Comfortable win on debut when taking on ordinary company, stepped up on that performance when runner up in a deeper race last time out at Salisbury. Still has a fair bit to find on form with some of these but is absolutely crying out for this step up in trip and if able to cope with this testing ground could cause an upset this afternoon.

Jersey Stakes

Vadream (0.5pt EW 25/1 5 places)

A good 3rd in behind Alcohol Free (Coronation Stakes winner yesterday) on reappearance back in April and put in another huge run in Group 1 company last time out. Drops back in trip here which looks a smart move and has the potential to relish these testing conditions today. Very lightly raced and a potential improver. Decent draw too.

Hardwicke Stakes

Ilaraab (1pt win only 5/1)

Hugely progressive last term winning 5 on the bounce over some fairly decent sorts. Has returned this season looking to have come on again putting another decent looking field to the sword. These are deeper waters for sure but deserves his place in the line up and ought to be competitive too. Twice a winner on soft and improved for a step up to this trip last time out. A very likeable attitude.

Diamond Jubilee Stakes

Ventura Rebel (0.5pt EW 22/1 B365)

Possibly has a little to find on form with a couple of these but is still open to some improvement and on a going day is as good as the market leaders here. Has done most of his best work on ground with some give and gets that today, hopefully not too sticky. Ran well on reappearance in a race that has not only worked out well but also ties him in very closely with a few of these and will hopefully have come on for that run which came on the back of a 228 day break putting him just right for a big run. Didn’t get an ideal run that day either so that run can possibly be upgraded slightly. Has placed twice and won one from just 3 runs at the track which offers further encouragement. Lots to like and overpriced.

17:00 Ascot 19 Jun 2021 

Wokingham Stakes

Zargun (0.5pt EW 40/1 6 places Will Hill)

Was well held by today’s favorite Kings Lynn last time out but had previously put in a couple of decent handicap runs which have shown that he is on a very workable mark. That last run came over a very inadequate 5f and this slight step up here in testing conditions looks absolutely perfect. Todays 5lb claim from a decent stall gives this one an extra boost and the price is ridiculous based on those last 3 runs this term. Extremely well bred and has an opportunity to upset a few here.

Golden Gates Stakes

Without Revenge (0.5pt EW 22/1 5 places PP)

Showed marked improvement for the step up in trip last time out suggesting that this race could well be at or around his optimum today. Has enough in the breeding to suggest this softer ground will not impede him too much and is worth a try in this wide open affair. Still looks to be on a decent mark despite that comfortable victory last time out and may well do better again having been given the time to come on for that. Excellent EW chances.

18:10 Ascot 19 Jun 2021 

Queen Alexandra Stakes

Global Heat (0.5pt EW 28/1)

One from the tracker who has a few question marks hanging over him today at this marathon trip in testing conditions. Not and obvious sort to relish the testing ground or the trip but there is enough in the breeding to suggest that he could. Now if the Godolphin team have seen fit to enter him here and Oisin Murphy takes the ride then who am i to argue. Has some useful form in the book and yard are going well so we take the bait.
