Ascot Place 6 preview | 9th September

14.00 – RoR Horses For Courses British EBF Novice Stakes – 7f

GHOSTWRITER knew his job when scoring on debut at Newmarket and despite carrying a penalty this time, he must have leading claims with more to offer. SPUN TO GOLD should improve from his promising debut third when tentatively handled and is feared most.

Tips: Ghostwriter, Spun To Gold 

14.35 – bet365 Handicap – 7f

HICKORY turned in a career-best effort when second over C&D in the International Stakes last time and a two pound rise shouldn’t prevent another bold bid to potentially go one better. I respect the claims of STAR OF ORION who is consistent and should be thereabouts once more.

Tips: Hickory, Star Of Orion 

15.10 – Lavazza Stakes – 1m3f

TRUE LEGEND will appreciate the drop in trip after being ridden too aggressively at York last time and remains well-treated on his previous second at Goodwood. PERFECT PLAY has only been out of the frame once since this time last year and is feared under Hayley Turner.

Tips: True Legend, Perfect Play 

15.45 – Victoria Racing Club ‘Confined’ Handicap – 1m1f

BOTANICAL comfortably went one better at Hamilton after finishing second on debut and ran well behind a warm favourite last time. He should be in the mix, while ELEGANCIA opened her account at Bath last-time-out and could be competitive in this deeper race.

Tips: Botanical, Elegancia

16.20 – Royal Ascot Racing Club 25th Anniversary British EBF Premier Fillies’ Handicap – 1m

LADY ALARA has been highly tried so far in her career and while she hasn’t figured since finishing third in a Listed event last July, she will find this drop in grade easier and is well handicapped. MAGGIE’S WAY is another dropping in grade and cannot be dismissed.

Tips: Lady Alara, Maggie’s Way 

16.55 – Fever-Tree Handicap – 6f

CAPOTE’S DREAM has been in good form of late and must be considered. REMINDER has won two of her four starts and made a winning handicap debut last time. She could take some beating, while DUSKY LORD is only two pounds higher than when winning the Ayr Silver Cup last year.

Tips: Capote’s Dream, Reminder, Dusky Lord
