Nick Shiambouros heads to Epsom where he has two selections from the seven race card...

"He is best judged on his defeat of Mandalayan last October which reads well in the context of this race"

Back Ace Ventura in the 15:05 at Epsom

Ace holds the advantage

15:05 Epsom - Ace Ventura

Ace Ventura is an interesting runner in this three-year-old handicap.

This gelding finished down the field behind Drill in a novice stakes at Chelmsford in June . He held every chance a furlong from home, but was quickly brushed aside and finished well beaten. He is best judged on his defeat of Mandalayan last October which reads well in the context of this race. I think he is reasonably treated on his first start in handicap company and is fairly priced at 5.69/2 on the exchange.

Ganayem heads the market at 2.9215/8. She was well beaten behind Agrotera in the Sandringham at Royal Ascot but should find this company more to her liking. She is the obvious danger to the selection.

Central the first choice

16:45 Epsom - Central City

Central City should win again for new trainer Ian Williams.

I gave this gelding a favourable mention in this column a few weeks ago, but frustratingly did not tip him. Needless to say he bounced back to form, and won a Doncaster Classified Stakes in good style from Detachment. Now that he has regained the winning thread, there should be more to come from this likeable individual. At present he is trading at 3.953/1 on the exchange which is about right.

Allegiant is well worth mentioning. He has run creditably in two starts for Stuart Williams and looks fairly treated on handicap debut. At present he is trading at 6.05/1 on the exchange.
