Its not always the best thing to do taking a price about a horse the night before the race, even more so when the race is not until 5.50 the following day, but Vanguard Dream seems to be overpriced to me at the moment. This is a drop in class for the Richard Hannon horse and he should be more than capable of making a bold showing at Ascot tomorrow. The form of his three wins as a two year old and more recently his form behind Frankel and Dubawi Gold give him prospects of at least trading for us tomorrow. Backed at 8 needing an in running or pre race lay off price of around the 5.2 mark.
Not sure how often I'll be able to post but a horse that I'm hoping will trade for us today is Shostakovitch in the 6.30 at Flos Las, currently 4.6 here on Betfair. Better known for his exploits on the all weather at Southwell where he has been in good form and a winner there three times. Although still a maiden on the turf he has put in some good shows without winning and can do so again today, despite a good second at Brighton last time out after a three month lay off he can still run off a mark 7lb lower than his all weather mark. He is two wins, three seconds and a third for this jockey and we will need a lay off price in running of around the 3.00 mark.
