Five British turf meetings for us today with good ground at all of them.
We start this afternoon at Market Rasen with Detour Ahead in the 2.50. After a long absence she hinted at a return to form last time at Bangor having been pulled up on her two return outings. Steps up in grade today and has winning form on good ground.
I make her 4/1 on my private tissue.
Our next race is the opener from this evening’s card at Ascot. Nigel is a horse I noted early last year. He failed to deliver on the promise shown despite being a warm order in the market on a number of occasions.
Has recently moved from the John Gosden yard to Richard Hughes in Upper Lambourn. Steps up in distance to 2 miles and is worth a look.
Difficult race to price accurately. The bookmakers are going a cautious 9/2.
Back tomorrow morning when we have Ascot and Haydock as the highlights.
