2:30 Ascot- Mustashry 5/1 (1pt ew)
Mustashry was progressive last season winning a listed race and two Group 2 races but took his form to the next level in Lockinge Stakes at Newbury. He won impressively by 2 ½ lengths at the finish and his rivals in behind will struggle to turn the tables in this race.
Mustashry looks the most solid option in this race and with up to five places available he looks sure to be involved in the finish.
3:40 Ascot- Signora Cabello 66/1 (0.25pt ew)
Many are billing this race as a three horse race between Battaash, Blue Point and Mabs Cross but I think it could be worth backing Signora Cabello to hit the frame at a huge price especially with one firm offering four places.
Signora Cabello won the Queen Mary last year over this C&D but has struggled so far this season over 6f. She drops down to 5f here and back at Ascot she could run well at a huge price.
4:20 Ascot- Shaman 11/1 (0.5pt ew)
Shaman won a conditions race on his final start as a 2 year old but has improved this season with victories in a listed race before winning the Group 3 Prix la Force at Longchamp.
Shaman ran well on heavy ground in the French 2000 Guineas when finishing only a length behind the top class Persian King and he could upset the top of the market here.
5:35 Ascot- Magic Wand 5/1 (2pt ew)
Magic Wand has an ultra impressive winner of the Ribblesdale Stakes here last year when she beat three times Group 1 winner Wild Illusion by four lengths. She has been campaigned strictly in Group 1s since and despite not winning, has run well in France and in the USA.
As the only filly in field, Magic Wand receives weight from all of her rivals and will appreciate the strong pace in this race. The only concern I have for this race is the forecast race this afternoon as she has shown her best form on good ground or faster but I would be very disappointed to see her out of the first four.
