DAKOTA GOLD (2.00) has been a money-spinner in handicap sprints this summer and he can prove hard to catch in the Rous Stakes at Ascot.

Michael Dods sent him to Newbury to contest a Group 3 contest last month and Dakota Gold didn’t appear entirely at home on the good to firm ground, finishing a close second to Maid In India. Back on a slower surface here Dakota Gold can resume winning ways, despite having to concede 3lb and more to his rivals. Danzeno chased him home in a Listed sprint at York earlier in the season and may have to play second fiddle again.

MORANDO (2.35) left some hefty bets behind when just outbattled by Technician in the Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury but he had 12 lengths in hand of subsequent winner Sextant back in fourth. Sextant re-opposes but Andrew Balding’s Morando can stamp his class over bigger threats Faylaq and Vivid Diamond, with Silvestre De Sousa back on the big Saturday stage following injury.

SUMMER SANDS (2.45) stands out in the Two Year Old Trophy at Redcar. Richard Fahey’s colt produced a career-best third to Earthlight and Golden Horde in the Group 1 Middle Park Stakes last Saturday and is a good thing to scoop the £100,000 first prize if handling the forecast heavy ground.

CANTON QUEEN (5.10) carries top weight in the fillies’ handicap which brings down the curtain on an excellent Newmarket card. Trainer Richard Hughes has been firing in a few winners following a rare quiet spell and Canton Queen, a daughter of Shamardal, put up a good fight when chasing home John Gosden’s She’s Got You at Ascot in early September. That winner came out to run the older Agincourt to a neck in a Listed contest here last week.

The HQ opener is an attractive fillies’ handicap and northern raider EVA MARIA (1.40) can carry the famous Bill Gredley silks with distinction. The daughter of Sea The Stars was dropped out from a very wide draw at Ayr last time but made up her ground stylishly to reel in Ladies First. There is scope for more improvement and Eva Maria can edge out local big guns Scentasia and Nearooz.
