Quick look at the 2.30 from Ascot this afternoon. A pretty competitive race in which a case can be made for the major players.
Le Mercurey won well at Plumpton on his seasonal reappearance as did Thomas Brown four days later. The latter’s performance that day over today’s course caught the eye.
He is not a horse I would oppose lightly but the negative for me is the skinny price currently on offer.
Presently a general 11/8 and as low as 5/4 with Hills. I have him in at 9/4 on my tissue.
Back tomorrow with a look at Saturday’s action.
