Verdict

Saturday's Ascot action begins with the consolation for the Wokingham Stakes. A maximum field (of 24) has been declared and it's probably an advantage to be drawn mid-to-high which could count against the progressive Swindler (2) and the otherwise interesting Pass The Vino (6). The Ayr Silver Cup winner Golden Apollo (14), the dropped-in-trip Blue Mist (20), and the largely unexposed duo of Aplomb (13) and Nahaarr (21) figure on the radar. However, we'll elect to stick with proven C&D form and plump for the Clive Cox-trained 8yo LOUIE DE PALMA (12). He has favourable conditions, and acquitted himself admirably in various similar races in 2019.
  1. Louie de Palma
  2. Aplomb
  3. Golden Apollo
