Lady Bullet 1pt win only 16/1 + She’s Hot 0.5pt EW 50/1 4 places B365 – Lady Bullet is one with a decent sprint pedigree who proved that she can go over this distance last time out winning a decent looking race in good style, and won going away from the field. Fast ground should be no issue and will be bang there with the pace from the off. Looks a tough filly. She’s Hot is bred to appreciate this slightly longer trip and should be able to get competitive from a big price. Yard have done very well with their 2yo’s in recent years and are no strancer to a winner at this meeting.

Flotus 0.5pt EW 50/1 5 places B365 + Gis A Sub 0.5pt EW 80/1 6 places Skybet – We like both of these judged on their 2yo form and despite neither of them putting their best feet forward yet this term that can all change now the conditions are set. Both will really enjoy the quicker ground and that in particular will see Gis A Sub in a much better light and Flotus looked to be on her way back with a much improved performance last time out giving something to build on. She was second in the Juddmonte last year and that form alone put her bang in this race should she turn up in the right mood.

Duke Of Edinburgh Stakes
Contact 1pt win only 9/1 – Very progressive 4yo who fits the bill perfectly for this race. Strong travelling, acts on any ground and was only narrowly denied on reappearance by Get Shirty who won here on Tuesday, quickly followed that up with two very good looking wins since and is open to yet more progress having looked to still have a little in hand at Haydock back in May.
16:20 Ascot 17 Jun 2022
Sandrine 1pt win only 12/1 – A very strong race in which over half the field hold excellent chances but we opt for one from the winning yard from last term who won this with one who had a very similar prep. 5th in the 1000 Guineas behind Cachet but should come on for that run and will be open to plenty of progress here. Was just getting going having run a little keen early doors and will have learned a lot from that first run over the mile.

Love Interest 0.5pt EW 20/1 8 Places SkyBet – Progressive sort who was unfortunate to run into a very good sort on reappearance in Nashwa who was 3rd in this years Oaks, followed that up with another good run in a listed race and is well worth a try dipping into handicap company for the first time. Ground should be no issue, looks the sort to be suited by the track and comes from a yard who know how to win these big handicaps around here. Based on what we have seen this week is drawn on the right side too.

Palace Of Holyroodhouse Stakes
Khunan 0.5pt EW 33/1 7 places B365 – Placed in a Group 2 last term and has been running in much better company that he finds himself in here. Has the speed for a 5f sprint but stays 6 which should bode well for this first try in Handicap Company for top connections.
