Verdict

By far the toughest race on the card for punters to solve, so you'd be wanting to have more than one selection in an attempt to find the winner. However, we'll stick to the 1m4f Ascot formline featuring Count Calabash in which Koeman (second) finished two places and one length in front of the Ian Williams-trained SPEEDO BOY. The selection was having his first start since November (hurdles) so can be expected to improve. Interestingly, he holds a Northumberland Plate entry (next weekend) and his trainer demonstrated his prowess with Flat stayers landing the consolation race the Northumberland Vase (2017) with a similar dual-purpose type; the sadly ill-fated London Prize.
  1. Speedo Boy
  2. Euchen Glen
  3. Northwest Frontier
