Ascot Day 3 ~

.Well its shattering stuff all the is reviewing, then updating , then posting , then trading , then 6pm my head is just spinning!! what better way to chill out than with some Desperado's ;) and im trying these new REDS and they have some kick i tell thee...but its a bit odd i feel as it doesnt know whether or not it wants to be a lager or a cider....but its lush regardless...

Summary from Day 2....well as expected it was a no show on the Placepot after a cracking first three races with 4 lines running and 2 winners from 3 races..i was bouyant however i was soon to be deflated as i had not even a sniff in the 4th even with 4 running for me...overall performance on the day was..sufficient , nothing special , no big wins although i did have a nice double with Duntle and Al Khazeem but that was only to offset my loss with laying Duntle and that kinda summed up the day for me, made a few quid, lost a few quid and come out slightly down on the day but again this was offset with better than expected profits from Hamilton which were blighted with losses from Uttoxeter...see the pattern here , Weds was a day of contrasts, won £500 then lost £501 ...etc not bothering with the evening meetings although i do have 1 remaining PPL race which i am keeping a beedy eye on as that has only made £28.00 Profit thus far even tho both races were winners one of the selections didnt get price matched which bit a little..

Performance of the day has to go to.....Jack Doyle for riding an Ascot Treble including the simply superb ride on Al Khazeem a horse that is going places unlike Camelot who imo should be retired with immediate effect as this is a horse shot to bits.

Well we slowly slip into Day 3 and it looks to get no easier how ever i do feel i can smash this PP today so will be going in hard ( ooo eerrr ) ;).




Norfolk Stakes (Group 2)

WIN - COACH HOUSE - ( EW NAP ) - 2nd @ 3.50
SUMMARY : Cracking top quality race to open day 3 a nice 5f sprint for the 2 yr olds and it looks set to be a cracker with some very well thought , highly regarded types about and a few with some very tasty form but none more so than COACH HOUSE who hosed up in the Listed ( class 1 ) Marble Hall stakes at the Curragh lto and that form alone is head and shoulders above anything else on offer and a repeat would probably suffice although its not without question that one of many could show further improvement and possibly cause a minor upset but i would rather be backing a horse that has done it rather than one that might do it...and even at a skinny looking 4.2 i think this is a fantastic bet.
Dangers?..yeah there are plenty , throw a blanket and see where it lands....
Notes : Coach House ran well but the speed from the USA horse was scintillating and then to stay on when passed was fantastic.

Ribblesdale Stakes (Fillies' Group 2)

SUMMARY : This is a solid Race for 3 yr olds over 1m4f that has been won in the past by some very good animals indeed however this year it looks rather weak with some horses i wouldnt have expected to see here today ( or any other ).
There are 3 in this race however which for me stand out and they are THE LARK who has run 3rd in both outings this term including lto in the Oaks and with a clearer run would have surely got nearer or even won and with a clear passage is gteed to be involved in the finish here, Closely tied in with The Lark is my second choice WINSILI and i doubt there will be much between these two today as Winsili had early finished ahead of The Lark but both have improved and this is the duel but between these two fractious beast we will also see WALIA coming into the reckoning on the back of a good Maiden victory but this will need to improve but this is almost gteed and this looks the improving sort that Stoute does so well with and Fallon could get a good ol tune out of this.
Notes : ** The Lark is now a NON RUNNER ** -  This like a couple of others today fell apart with the non runners , Riposte the other Dansili offspring ran on well to win.

Gold Cup (British Champions Series) (Group 1)

WIN - ESTIMATE - 1st @ 5.30
SUMMARY :Now its time for the creme de la creme for the stayers over this marathon 2m4f trip and " IF " ESTIMATE stays this trip fully its game over as she wont be beaten but you have to take any bet on trust but the way she has been winning over 2m here when winning the Queens Vase last year and the Sagaro Stakes this year leads me to believe she will stay and i will be having a good go on this.
 RITE OF PASSAGE also has to come into the reckoning as its been laid out for this and if fully wound up will make them all go a bit along with all the confirmed stayers from the NH game with the likes of Aim to Prosper , Simneon and Saddlers Rock all of whom will be trying to make this as big a test as possible in the hope of out staying there weaker flat rivals but the " Blot " here could well be HIGH JINX who has some bloody good form in races with trips ranging from 1m4f - 2m3f and will stay for sure and could sneak up and take this.
Notes : Bit of a non event for me now ;( - Great run and win for me ;)...

Britannia Stakes 

EW - WENTWORTH / SEA SHANTY - 4th @ 5.40
SUMMARY : 1m , 3 yr olds and a 30 runner field , yes we delve back into the realm of the ridic and i will be having five yes FIVE placepot selections here in a race that will play out like something from the charge of the light brigade!!.
Notes :

Tercentenary Stakes 

WIN - SHIRKAPOUR - 2nd @ 9.68
SUMMARY : Another race for the 3 yr olds but this time over a more specialized 1m2f and with a decent field of 12 that is full of form, improvers and well a few with some class this will be a good race, so where do i start?, well firstly i feel SHIRKAPOUR will take some beating today as its 5th in the French Derby was only its 2nd run and that form on its own puts it in the van and with some improvement this could prove a tough nut to crack but INDIAN CHIEF comes into this and the reckoning on the back of some solid efforts including a narrow defeat lto to Subsequent Derby 3rd Libertarian which is rock and is sure to make a good fist of it.
Finally i think we should have KITTEN ON THE RUN on our side as this will have benefited greatly from its debut run and could be absolutely anything and shouldnt be under estimated coming from the wily ol' fox that is Cumani.
Notes :

King George V Stakes

WIN - BOLD SNIPER - 3rd @ 5.56
SUMMARY : Finally we round off the day with a typically competitive race a 19 runner 1m4f Hcap where tactics, position and the ability to do one of two things will be of the utmost importance..1) be able to run, lead from the front and be able able to quicken off the pace you have followed or made and 2) be able to come off the pace and charge at the leaders mowing them down in the straight.

Notes :

Well this looks another tough day but a good bit easier than yesterday with solid betting options and the placepot looks ripe for the taking....My big Bet here will be ...


1. COACH HOUSE - 2nd
2. THE LARK - NR -
3. ESTIMATE - 1ST          = £170.75 Profit

Good Luck.
