I fancied doing a bonus blog today. With the weather being as beautiful as it is I thought why not have a flutter! Looking forward to Glorious Goodwood next week and hopefully finding a few big priced winners in the handicaps. I hope the weather stays this good for all my six week holiday! The normal blog will return tomorrow after a few weeks break, hopefully with a bit of profit from today.
WOODLAND ARIA 1555 ASCOT (nap) – ran a pretty decent race behind Integral after a lay off last time and this filly is going places. That race was Group 2 level and with a repeat of that performance she should certainly be in the shake up here. Euro Charlene has been running very well in defeat too but I think my selection will just get the better of her at the line.
GO NANI GO 1700 ASCOT (nb) – this fella loves the rattle of firm ground and with this heat drying everything up he should get the conditions he wants. He's on his highest mark ever but the ground is key for him and with the talented Oisin Murphy on board I'm hopeful of a big run.
ELIDOR 1525 ASCOT (treble) – he won the King George V Stskes at Royal Ascot last year and runs in a way that would encourage him to stay this 2 miles. He ran a cracker first time out on much softer ground but has form on this quicker ground too. Hughesie is a big plus and I think he'll stalk them until the final two and then kick on.
CHARLES CAMOIN 1625 ASCOT – this fella had been seriously out of form until he returned here and won last time. Course and distance is now 2 from 2 and he is still a pound lower than a previous winning mark. Must have another great chance.
