Racecourse: Ascot
Time: 13:50
Date: 08/08/2020
Horse: Equitation
Current Odds: 15/2 Betfred, Betway & Boylesports, use BOG bookies
Advised Stake & Bet Type: 0.5 Point Each Way
Selection Reasoning

Equitation arrives here in much better recent form than Dazzling  Dan and is our number one choice. He finished runner up last time out here over five furlongs to stablemate Tone The Barone and looks sure to improve for going out in trip to six furlongs. Last September he won here over this trip on good to firm ground when rated 3lbs lower under today’s good claimer jockey Marco Ghiani. Six furlongs is the best trip for Equitation as is decent underfoot conditions.

Racecourse: Ascot
Time: 14:25
Date: 08/08/2020
Horse: Via Serpendipity
Current Odds: 8/1 Bet365 & William Hill
Advised Stake & Bet Type: 0.5 Point Each Way
Selection Reasoning

Via Serendipity is very well handicapped if able to produce anything like his best form. He has dropped from a turf mark of 98 all the way down to 83 and is due to carry 8-4 tomorrow with Hayley Turner back on riding duties. Via Serendipity has won over a mile here on the round course and loves fast ground. His all weather form held up well last winter where he is rated impressively on 105. A switch of trainer to Charlie Fellowes might help re-awaken his competitive spirits on a course where all weather form stands up very well.

Racecourse: Cork
Time: 15:05
Date: 08/08/2020
Horse: My Laureate
Current Odds: 11/1 generally, look for bookies paying 4 places & BOG
Advised Stake & Bet Type: 0.5 Point Each Way
Selection Reasoning

A premier sprint handicap and I am siding with the Ger Lyons trained My Laureate who ran well at Listed level when fading over the final furlong in a very strong race won by Make A Challenge. Cork is a fast and easy course which will suit this filly much better than Naas which has a stiff hill finish. Gary Carroll rides with a claimer booked for the other stable runner Ardhoomey. My Laureate won over this trip at Navan last season and might be just returning to near her best form. She ran a nice race here over the same trip when run down late at the back end of last season. This is her second run back as a four year old and a nice pot to try and win.

Racecourse: Cork
Time: 15:40
Date: 08/08/2020
Horse: Soul Search
Current Odds: 11/2 Bet365 & Betfred, both paying 4 places & BOG.
Advised Stake & Bet Type: 0.5 Point Each Way
Selection Reasoning

Soul Search ran well when finishing third to Valeria Messalina at Group 3 level here almost a month ago. We had her backed that day following an unlucky run at Fairyhouse previously when meeting traffic in running. I am glad connection have decided to put on the blinkers as she didn’t seem to want it badly enough in her recent run. However, he winner Valeria Messalina ran a cracker at Goodwood last week when just beaten by the talented and Group 1 winner One Master. Soul Search enjoys a healthy weight for age and sex allowance here and must have every chance if putting it all together. She travels well and just needs to come late and fast over the top of the leaders.
