Ray Flanagan with Saturday Ascot and Leopardstown selections
1 pt ew-Bolshoi Ballet -3,50 Ascot-12-1 bet 365 W-O Mishriff and Adayer (One time Derby favourite could yet show that initial hopes were not tilting at rainbows. Needs to bounce back but could easily do so. At any rate 12-1 without the two market leaders looks fair.
1 pt ew-Matthew Flinders-4.30 Ascot-20-1 P Power-6 places (Looks the value option for this very competitive handicap. Chance on his third in Newbury’s spring mile and easier ground enhances his chances.
1 pt ew- Up Helly AA-3.45 Leopardstown-12-1 bet 365 (Decent squeak on pick of his efforts including third behind Broome and Thundering Nights at The Curragh)
1 pt ew- Camphor-5.25 Leopardstown-22-1 General (May appreciate lesser grade than contesting of late and nicely weighted factoring in jockey’s seven pound claim.)
