Thursday 17th June:

#NAP – ONE RULER (3.05 Ascot) – Showed some really smart form in his two-year-old campaign which included a Group 3 win at Newmarket where he beat a subsequent Group 1 winner and on his next start he was beaten just under a length in the Group 1 Vertem Futurity at Doncaster behind the well-regarded Mac Swiney, again a future Group 1 winner. This colt has been highly tried in his first two starts of this season, finishing sixth on both occasions, firstly in the 2000 Guineas (form was boosted when the winner Poetic Flare bolted up in the St James’ Palace Stakes on Tuesday) and then when midfield in The Derby where perhaps the longer trip didn’t suit. He’s dropped back a couple of furlongs and if finding the form shown last year then he looks a serious contender here with any rainfall a plus having shown best form on a slower surface. (9/2) – Bet365 – 1ptLost (-1)

#IWAC – ACT OF WISDOM (5.35 Ascot) – After an underwhelming debut he won his next three starts in his two-year-old season, all over 1m2f on varying surfaces (good/soft/heavy) and he probably ran to a better level on his reappearance when fifth at HQ behind Mohaafeth who has bolted up in a listed event next time and is a short price in a Group 3 earlier on the card. He’s since undergone a gelding operation and now takes the step up to 1m4f for the first time which should bring out further improvement being a son of Galileo. He’s a very big price here if he’s able to step up and hopefully can run his race and grab some prize money with six places on offer for each-way terms. (28/1) – William Hill – 0.5pt ew (6 places)Lost (-1)
