Nick Shiambouros returns to the tipping chair with a selection from Newcastle and one from Ascot...


"He is clearly held in high regard, and his conditioner appears to have found the perfect opportunity for him to get off the mark"

Back Topofthegame in the 12:45 at Ascot

12:25 Newcastle - Mums The Word


Mums The Word should open her account in this maiden.

This filly put in a much improved effort when finishing sixth to Red Onion in a Listed race at Chantilly last month. She kept on really well in the closing stages, and was not beaten all that far. I think she has more to offer and should prove difficult to beat.

At present she is trading at 2.466/4 on the exchange and I have backed her at that price.

Bizzarria appears to be the main danger. This well related filly finished down the field behind Golden Nectar at Kempton on debut. She is entitled to show improvement and represents high profile connections.


12:45 Ascot - Topofthegame


Topofthegame is taken to make a winning start under Rules.

This gelding was sold for a pretty penny after winning an Irish point in great style last season. He made all the running and pulled clear to win easily. He is clearly held in high regard, and his conditioner appears to have found the perfect opportunity for him to get off the mark. His current price of 3.39/4 on the exchange is more than fair.

Criq Rock is the favourite at 2.89/5. He finished a decent second to the progressive Thomas Campbell over this course last month. He should benefit from the extra yardage and could give the selection a race.

Tales Of The Tweed is worth a mention. He has shown promise in a couple of bumpers. and trainer Nicky Henderson loves to win this race.
