Today we’re warming up for Royal Ascot and hope to have a few winners!
13:20 Pontefract: Meraas
Mark Johnston has sent two runners to Ponte that are both are fancied in the market. Also stable jockey Fanning is there which we think is significant.
Meraas won last time out and Johnston has a good record with horses like this so we think this is worth a bet.
We will only back this horse if it is Favourite or 2nd Favourite which looks extremely likely.
15:15 Goodwood: Iron Heart
Trainer Andrew Balding is in great form along with jockey Oisin Murphy and they team up on Iron Heart here who has been campaigned on the All Weather. He’s only a 3 year old and should improve.
Sporting Life says:
‘Winner on latest start when getting on top late over a mile at Southwell in February, showing a good attitude; should stay this trip, and open to plenty more improvment, so has to be of interest.’
We want to see some money for this selection. Currently he is trading at 5.2 on Betfair. If he Favourite or 2nd Favourite near the off then we will back it. If he drifts to say over 6.0 then we’ll leave it.
15:25 Ponefract: My Girl Maggie
This is Johnston’s second runner that we like and he has a good record at Pontefract. This looks like a weak race and My Girl Maggie should go close.
We will only back her if she is Favourite or 2nd Favourite near the off which at the moment looks likely.
18:35 Kempton: Colonize
John Gosden is in great form and runs Colonize here after a substantial break. We know he acts on the surface and is stepped up in trip so should improve.
We will only back him if Favourite or 2nd Favourite which looks likely but watch the market!
