The first maiden at Newmarket 1.30 is packed with nice fillies. Bouquet is the stand out on breeding being by Dark Angel out of Bound but there is no market interest. Wilderness Girl is well backed to continue Andrew Balding's near monopoly of 2yo races this week. I have backed both but sadly took 14 on Bouquet yesterday.
2.05. a quality fillies handicap in which Kingmania looks the pick.
3.15 Superlative stakes. Native Trail is short but nothing he beat has advertised the form. I will chance Masekela. Will Buick is back from suspension today with several good chances. 
4.25 July Stakes. Chil Chil is much improved and has a small e/w chance. Creative Force keeps improving.
5.00 Spirit Mixer is bottom weight but has a chance.

Ascot 1.50. Unspoken gave 7lb to Asymmetric last time out and was hampered in the run before finishing a close third. Asymmetric is rated 107 on his second in the July Stakes which makes Unspoken worth 110! Surely a good thing in this.
3.00 Summer mile. Several old favourites in here including Sir Busker and Top Rank but Happy Power is value at 13 each way.
4.10 Achelois another favourite for A Balding/D Probert and has Madame Tantzy to beat.
If Andrew Balding has a blank day I will have a bad one.
Good luck all.

Not forgetting the greyhound Derby final at Towcester @ 21.09 of course. Deerjet Sydney in trap 3 gunning to become only the 5th greyhound in history to win the event twice. Mick The Miller,Patricia's Hope, Rapid Ranger and Westmead Hawk being the dual winners. Personally I'm hoping Sydney gets the smash break and makes all.

If at first you don't succeed. I decided to follow Balding over a cliff today and a place on Shine So Bright and then e/w Johnny Drama has turned the day round after 5 consecutive losers. Come on Chil Chil, Spirit Mixer and Acelois.

that johnny drama was a very good winner, prolific winner with pattern form, tipped by tome segal and a crazy price, never bothered looking at the york meeting, did back 3 winners there la trinidad/hukum/atomic lady, last one being crucial to my day

balding yard in cracking form sage

nice to see some of the supporting cast getting a big day JB especially

yes nice to see balding yard hitting great form, about time uk youngish trainers did get more consistent, perhaps this allegations by bolger might make things more even Wink

C. Appleby is now leading the trainers champs but O'Brien second from just 8 winners! Johnston is now fourth but has 126 wins! The prize money is so skewed to a few Group 1 races that Aiden can keep winning it with very few runners. Appleby and Balding are consolidating the quality in their yards so are well ahead of Hannon and Fahey who have far more runners. I do know what you mean about quantity of races which is why I tend to look at trainer/jockey combinations, owner breeders and other ways to restrict my bets. Sandrine fits all of my criteria so I don't need to look at form. Agree about Bryan after his long injury break. Many people criticise King Power but they keep their horses in training and reap rewards like Johnny Drama who appeared to lose his way last year.

he wasn't injured sage, he deliberately avoided giving a routine sample back in 2018
served a 6 month ban for it in 2nd half of 2019 completely de-railed him & he hasn't recovered

I know he's done a lot of work with that york horse since he's been with baldings
its a a known biter, wears a hood at home etc tricky horse
gave him a good ride yesterday too fair play
