Our focus is on the Qipco Champion Stakes, where the grand old servant Cirrus Des Aigles is leading the market to win yet another Group One race. He has been laid out for this race and the heavy ground is in his favour, however, at 5/4 he is short enough and simply has to be taken on in the market with some fancy each-way prices knocking about.
Noble Mission can also be opposed at short prices to place. Frankel’s brother has been a revelation this season in small fields where is able to dictate matters from the front but this is a deep race and he’ll get found out in the business end of the action.
I was flabbergasted to see the 20/1 prices about SHEIKHZAYEDROAD and he has to be backed with each-way stakes. David Simcock’s gutsy middle distance performer has been a real money spinner for the yard, picking up over £300,000 of prize money since making the progression through the handicaps. He has been in sensational form this season, showing a real love for a slog by winning at Newmarket and York in terrific gutsy fashion. Martin Lane manages to get a real tune out of this fella and nothing will be staying on stronger up Ascot’s lung bursting hill than the selection. At 20/1 he’s a corking bet.
Cheltenham’s October meeting, the first of the new season at HQ, was renamed The Showcase in 2007 and moved to its present Friday/Saturday slot. The popular two-day meeting is a natural starting point for horses returning from their summer breaks and is often used in preparation for The Open (Friday, November 14 – Sunday, November 16 inclusive) at the course. The Showcase Trophy at 3:45 is the feature of the weekend and Le Bec should be backed if the ground stays testing. We have yet to see the very best of this beast of a horse as he was travelling well when falling four our in the RSA Chase. He has top-class three mile chaser stamped all over him and he should be winning off a mark of 149 sooner or later. Get on.
