SOCIETY LION (4.50) is interesting dropping to six furlongs in the finale at rain-soaked Ascot.
The track looks sure to ride very deep and Sir Michael Stoute’s colt fairly sluiced through the mud when scoring comfortably in a 7f novice stakes at Yarmouth last October. Society Lion notched a Goodwood victory in early August and his third to Documenting here almost four weeks ago was another solid effort.
King’s Lynn was fancied to land the Ayr Silver Cup but may have gone off too hard, leading down the centre for four furlongs before fading quickly out of the picture. His best runs have come on fast ground and Cold Front, a wide-margin winner on good to soft at Haydock in July, may emerge as a bigger threat,
GUVENOR'S CHOICE (5.20) has been in good form on the all-weather lately and his most recent Kempton third was made to look okay when runner-up Anna Of Lorraine won at Wolverhampton earlier this week. The grey has form over this longer 1m 2f trip and represents a decent each-way bet at nice odds. Hamilton winner My Ukelele may be vulnerable trying this distance for the first time.
