13:15 Ascot - Topofthegame


Topofthegame should get back to winning ways in this interesting race.

This point winner finished fourth to Wholestone in a Grade 2 event at Cheltenham last month. He had a big chance on the run to the final flight, but could only stay on at one pace in the closing stages. I thought this was a better effort than the bare result suggests, and this likeable individual should be kept on the right side. He is open to further improvement, and is attractively priced at 3.814/5 on the exchange.

Beyond Conceit is the favourite at 2.9215/8. This decent flat performer beat Shantou Rock effortlessly on his hurdles debut at Newbury last month. This is a lot tougher, but he is the big improver in the race and represents high profile connections.


15:50 Haydock - No Hassle Hoff


No Hassle Hoff sets a decent standard in this Grade 2 event.

This consistent performer finished a close second to Constantine Bay at Doncaster last month. He was headed on the run to the line, but kept on bravely and was only just denied. Stamina will not be an issue for the improving staying hurdler and a big run is expected. At present he is trading at 2.942/1 on the exchange and have backed him at that price.

Ballyarthur could give the selection most to do. He made all when beating Global Stage at Leicester last month and appears to be heading in the right direction. The extra yardage will suit and is reasonably priced at 9.89/1 on the exchange.
