Fresh tough to beat at happiest hunting ground

The Wokingham is as wide open as ever but course form is crucial on the straight track at Ascot and the stars could be aligning for Fresh, who has form figures of 4321 in fields of 16 or more on the straight course.

Fresh is arguably better over six furlongs and confirmed that impression in the Victoria Cup over seven furlongs in May when just fading out of things.

The fact he ran so well in fourth from stall 13 in a race where there was a clear draw bias (the first, second and third were drawn 27, 26 and 28) means the performance deserves marking up.

He returns off the same mark back at a trip he prefers and Danny Tudhope, who is back aboard, has been riding out of his skin this week and can enjoy another winner on the meeting’s final day for owners Clipper Logistics. 

Huxley can prove Group-class in Golden Gates

This is only the third running of the Golden Gates Stakes and the race unearthed two future Group horses in previous winners Foxes Tales and Highland Chief.

There is every chance history will repeat itself and Aldous Huxley could be destined for better things after this. Aldous Huxley brings Derby trial form to the table having almost nailed Irish Derby hope Lionel in the Cocket Hat Stakes last time and looks value to upset hot favourite Missed The Cut, who he finished ahead of in a strong Newmarket novice two starts back.

It is not worth reading too much into the fact Frankie Dettori is aboard stablemate Honiton as it makes more sense to book a claimer to ride Aldous Huxley, who is the topweight. There are few apprentices who are better value for their 5lb allowance than Benoit de la Sayette and the pair can strike on the big stage. 

Falcon can soar clear in finale

The weather gods are not smiling on Trueshan and he surely won't run in the Queen Alexandra Stakes. Assuming he doesn’t take his chance, there definitely shouldn't be as much as there is in the early betting between Wordsworth and Falcon Eight.

Falcon Eight attempted to scoop a historic double on the Roodee last month but the weight told and he could only manage fifth. He was attempting to concede in excess of 12lb to the likes of Cleveland, Coltrane and Arcadian Sunrise, who have all advertised the form at the royal meeting this week.

The 2021 Chester Cup winner has his conditions and guaranteed stamina. It was only two days ago his brother Kyprios landed the Gold Cup at this meeting and you can draw a line through his disappointing effort here last campaign as the ground went against him.
