Alan Thomson’s Tips: 9-4 shot is worth the Wait at Ascot

RoyalAscot4

WAITING PATIENTLY (3.35) faces his acid test when going to post for the Betfair Ascot Chase.

Ruth Jefferson saddled her first winner since taking over the licence from her late dad Malcolm when Cyrus Darius romped home in the Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso on Thursday and Waiting Patiently deserves a crack at Grade 1 company following six straight victories.

He has something to find on official figures with Top Notch, Cue Card, Coney Island and Frodon, but Waiiting Patiently remains a seven-year-old with untapped potential.

KILDISART (3.00) boasts a course and distance success and should be nice and fresh following a 53-day break.

His last run came at Kempton on Boxing Day when chasing home Golan Fortune over 2m 5f. He was attempting to concede 10lb to the winner and Golan Fortune came out and won again. Ben Pauling has his yard in cracking form following a mid-season lull and Kildisart should run a big race.

BLAKLION (3.15) can go one better than last year and land the Betfred Grand National Trial at muddy Haydock.

He ran into a bang-in-form Vieux Lion Rouge 12 months ago and races off a 9lb higher perch. However, Nigel Twiston-Davies’s gelding arrives in great nick having fairly sluiced through the Aintree mud to land the Becher Chase by a wide margin from The Last Samuri.

The Dutchman has been thumped by the handicapper following his course victory in last month’s Peter Marsh Chase, rocketing 13lb up the ratings.

Wild West Wind and Three Faces West both fell when bowling along in front on their last racecourse appearances but are usually sound jumpers.

Jefferson could enjoy a red letter day if BLACK IVORY (3.50) can continue his progression in the 2m 7f Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle.

The six-year-old beat a solid yardstick in Sykes over 3m 1f at Warwick and lowered the colours of Le Breuil at Aintree on heavy ground back in January. Black Ivory remains on a feasible mark and Jamie Hamilton takes off 3lb.

De Rasher Counter was in the process of running a stormer when coming down at the last flight in a hot novices’ hurdle at Cheltenham. Winner Santini and runner-up Black Ops are very useful but to run salt into his wounds, De Rasher Counter has been raised a whopping 16lb by the assessor.

Nicky Henderson is usually the man to follow on a Saturday and CHEF DES OBEAUX (4.25) will be very hard to beat in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle.

He strolled home from the Paul Nicholls-trained favourite Secret Investor at Kempton over three miles early last month and is one to follow.

    It’s looking a good year for antepost tips as prices continue to drop massively,
    The latest is next weeks Winter Derby and I really hope you got the early 16/1 as he is now as low as 3/1 “it’s good to see connections taking my advice to go to Lingfield”

    A new antepost bet is in Australia and comes from the yard Lulu Stanford is at “Gai Waterhouse”
    In the early hours of Saturday morning i witnessed one of the best 2yo performances I have ever seen and we just might have seen the 2018 Golden Slipper winner, the horse in question is SANTOS and he was so impressive, keen before the race and again keen during the race he stalked the leaders and then in the home straight he put the race to bed in a matter of strides with a blistering turn of foot, the run was even more impressive when you see that Santos beat the track record by a second
    I have had eyes on Santos well before saturdays race and connections have known for a long time that this was a serious Golden Slipper contender, 50/1 was available before the race but obviously that has gone now but the 14/1 is still decent “remember though you will lose your stake if he doesn’t run”
    Only bet365 have the March 24th race priced up

    Golden Slipper 24th March
    SANTOS 14/1 bet365
