Ascot – Best Bet

Published by on November 18, 2016

At Ascot, we have a full Going Map to work with and that suggests that the ground is consistently good to soft right across the whole track.Resolution Bay runs in the third race at 2.10. We backed this horse when he won nicely at Exeter last time but he bumps into a very useful performer today. Thomas Campbell beat Khezerabad last time and, while we are against Khezerabad today, that is impressive form and Resolution Bay will need to improve again to beat this one. The Henderson yard are very bullish on this one’s talent, and the cut in the ground and even track will help this horse settle, jump and come with a big run towards the last that should be too much to stop. We will take the price now, as Khezerabad will either run well today or have the soft ground as an excuse (trainer has expressed concerns). Either way, I think Thomas Campbell will shorten in the betting.

2.10 Ascot, Thomas Campbell, 1.50 Point Win at 5/4 with Bet365 BOG +.
