How’s the going?

There has been a lot of rain around and there is more forecast. The going is good to soft and there are ten non-runners.

The Big Trend

JIM CROWLEY has had a wonderful season so far and some of his finest performances have come at this racecourse. He is 10 from 41, a strike rate of 24% and with a further two rides today, he could be a man to watch out for.

Leg 3 - 3:05pm - RAAEQ Leg 6 - 4:50pm - BUHTURI

Looking at the trainers, Roger Varian is having a wonderful season at Ascot. 11 winners from 43 runners is no bad feat, and he also has a further two entries today who will be worth a closer look.

Leg 3 - 3:05pm - JUMAIRA BAY Leg 6 - 4:50pm - MUSICALITY

Placepot Banker

The second leg of the Tote Placepot is the four-runner race with just the one place up for grabs. It is a surprise to see so little entries with £22,650 up for grabs, however, the St Leger second is the pick here.

BERKSHIRE ROCCO (2:30, Leg 2) was chasing Galileo Chrome right to the line and he looked like he had a really good chance with a furlong to go. He has performed brilliantly all season and his only drawback is that he hasn’t won. This is a great opportunity as it should be a bit of a formality.

Outsider to Consider

We haven't seen much of PIRANESI (1:55, Leg 1) this season. The William Haggas three-year-old has had just the three starts and has improved with every attempt. A respectable third on the July course at Newmarket followed by a win at Yarmouth was a great way to kick off his campaign.

However, connections would be disappointed with an underwhelming second at Newbury last time out. He finished two lengths behind Without A Fight when a very short price. But the market got it wrong that day. Without A Fight is a very smart individual who backed up that victory with another at Haydock. He was convincing that day and is now rated 100. Piranesi is 12 lbs better off and taking on opposition that are very inconsistent.

Torpedo Leg

Leg three of the Placepot is a tricky one to dissect, even with six non-runners. Raaeq and Ebury have solid prospects an are the pair we will do for us..
