The interesting race is the 3:30 at Salisbury. This is a step up in class for Princess Zada and I think she’ll struggle to cope with it. If the forecast rain arrives then Bajan Pride may not win as his best form has come on faster surfaces and he has gone up 7lb for winning a slowly run race last time – I will lay this horse to be unplaced.
I don’t rate the form of the Ascot race where Leptis Magna finished runner up and the one I like is Blue Monkey who has progressed well this season and won’t mind any ease in the going. He’s trading at 4’s on BF which I think is fair value. Mark of Love could be a danger if the ground got really testing and I think Padlocked still looks fairly treated if handling the conditions.
I’ve not been in good form on the horses recently so I expect Princess Zada to win, Bajan Pride to be placed and Blue Monkey to finish last
