Dods sprinter can exploit tumbling mark in concluding Ascot handicap

Ascot: racing on Saturday
1 of 1

Newmarket: David Milnes

Cape Byron(3.35 Ascot, nap)

Roger Varian's classy sort has been knocking on the door of late including when running today's rival Ripp Orf to just a neck last time. The chestnut has since worked nicely on the Limekilns trial ground.

Others to follow
Ascot 1.50 Spring Loaded, 2.25 First Eleven, 3.00 Laugh A Minute, 4.10 Laugh Aloud, 4.45 Leo Minor.

North:Richard Young

Rose Tinted Spirit (5.40 Redcar, nap)

Progressive sort who won't mind any rain and showed a fine attitude to win over 1m1f on only third turf start at Musselburgh last time. 5lb higher but longer trip looks sure to suit and open to more improvement.

Others to follow
Ascot 1.50 Mr Lupton, 2.25 Communique, 3.00 Hey Jonesey, 3.35 Above The Rest, 4.10 Miss Bar Beach, 4.45 Holmeswood.

Lambourn: James Burn

Fille De Reve(2.05 Newmarket, nap)

Ed Walker has plenty of belief and confidence in this improving filly, who looks poised to launch a bold bid for the hat-trick, as long as the ground is quick and the rain stays away.

Others to follow
Ascot 1.50 A Momentofmadness, 2.25 Laraaib, 3.00 Limato, 3.35 Raising Sand, 4.10 Solar Gold, 4.45 Puds.

Wolverhampton 5.15 Max Guevara, 5.45 Kasayid, 6.15 Sunday Scholar, 6.45 Tashaaboh.

West Country: Andrew King

Majestic Touch(2.50 Fontwell, nap)

On a hat-trick of victories and shaped as if this step up in trip would suit with ground and course in his favour.

Others to follow
Fontwell 1.40 Mauna Kea 2.15 Diplomate Sivola 5.05 Earth Moor

Racing Post Ratings:Paul Curtis

Holmeswood(4.45 Ascot)

Has shaped better than the bare form in recent starts, including when best of those held up at Haydock last time, and can take advantage of a good mark over a track and trip that should suit.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

Wind Chimes(3.15 Newmarket)

Just denied at Longchamp a month ago, Andre Fabre's French raider can return to winning ways.

Longshot:Sam Hardy

Billesdon Brook (3.15 Newmarket)

Back at the scene of her finest hour when winning the 1000 Guineas and has been lightly-raced since. James Doyle is a positive jockey booking and she can outrun her double figure price.

Ireland: Tony O'Hehir

Felix Desjy (2.30 Gowran Park)

A dual bumper winner who performed creditably in Grade 1 bumpers at the Cheltenham and Punchestown festivals last season, the Gordon Elliott-trained five-year-old can make a successful start in today's 2m4f maiden hurdle.
