Bond to the rescue Shergar Cup Dash

It's Shergar Cup day at Ascot and some very good prize money up for grabs.

Personally, I am not a fan of the team colours replacing owner colours. Howevier, It is a jockeys team event after all and unique in the racing calendar.

Intrinsic Bond landed a valuable handicap over course and distance a fortnight ago. He ran to a career best on his first start for trainer Michael Wigham. There was no fluke about that win as he could be called the winner almost two furlongs out. The handicapper has hit him with an 8lb hike in the ratings to 99. He stays six furlongs having won the Great St Wilfrid handicap last season. That is a positive on this stiff five furlongs and more so on good to soft ground.

Ascot 1:35

0.5 point each way Intrinsic Bond 6/1 William Hill, Betfair SB & Betfred, all 4 places.

Best of Luck, Nicky
