Nick Shiambouros was on the mark yesterday when his best bet Topofthegame won. Nick returns to Ascot with two strong fancies...

"I think this eight-year-old gelding has a lot more to offer, and is a star in the making"

Back Unowhatimeanharry in the 14:25 at Ascot

14:25 Ascot - Unowhatimeanharry


Unowhatimeanharry is my idea of the winner of this historic race.

This talented performer won his sixth race in a row when beating Ballyoptic at Newbury last month. He swept to the front two flights from home, and pulled clear to win in great style. I think this eight-year-old gelding has a lot more to offer, and is a star in the making. He is currently trading at 2.466/4 and I have backed him at that price.

French raider Alex De Larredya is an interesting runner. This gelding bolted up in a Grade 1 at Auteuil last month. He merits consideration, but I do not think he will trouble the selection.


15:00 Ascot - Minella Daddy


Minella Daddy should go close in this competitive event.

This gelding put in a much improved effort last time out when beating Tinker Time over this course last month. He had the race in safe keeping two from home, and won with plenty in hand. He has more to do in this race, but I think he is still ahead of the handicapper. I am expecting a big effort, and have backed him at his current price of 10.09/1 on the exchange.

Go Conquer heads this market at 6.611/2. This lightly-raced individual finished a close second to Present Man over this course last month. He delivered a strong challenge on the run-in and was only just denied. I think he is the main danger to the selection and will make his presence felt.

The Druids Nephew is worth a mention. He has the form in the book to go close if he puts his best foot forward.
