What a cracking day of competitive racing we have on Saturday. I’m sticking to the Ascot meeting in which I have three selections.

Ascot 1:25 – Stradivarius 7/2

With the ground being forecasted as good to soft it definitely increases the chances of Stradivarius given his last match-up against Trushan at Longchamp was on pretty heavy ground.

As Rizzle already mentioned, I think Trushan is a bit over rated. I don’t doubt the ability of Trushan on soft/heavy ground he’ll beat most on it but most horses don’t enjoy that ground anyway. Bit of a one trick pony as they say… Connections will still fancy their chances even on good to soft nonetheless.

The match up at Longchamp was only a couple of weeks ago but Frankie eased Strad down that day when he was clearly beaten whereas Trushan looked to be all out basically to the line. Whether that run has had an effect on them only time will tell.

Strad is one of my all time favourites. I’ll back him every time and you know exactly what you’ll get with him. There’s no doubt Frankie will have to adopt different tactics in this race if he’s to come out on top against Trushan. I think the drop back to 2m plays in Strad's favour and there’s a strong possibility he’ll have too much pace for the rest of the field.

Ascot 2:00 Dragon Symbol 11/2

I’m not normally a fan of tipping horses who are extremely frustrating to follow, however I’m doing exactly that with Dragon Symbol.. mainly due to the the consistency of the horse and the price of 11/2.

If there’s a horse in this race that deserves a Group 1 sprint victory then it’s Dragon Symbol. There’s simply no arguing that statement.

I think the ground conditions are absolutely perfect for him on Saturday. If he turns up, which he usually does, he’ll go close but let’s hope for our sake is not another case of close but no cigar with him. 11/2 I thought was a pretty nice price as well.

Ascot 3:20 Baaed 5/2

I’m one for taking on the favourite, maybe I'm wrong in doing so given what Palace Pier has achieved but if there’s a horse that’s out there at present to give Frankie's mount a run for their money it’s Baaed.

At 5/2 he’s surely worth a punt? Five wins on the trot on different types of ground, he took being upped in class like it was a walk in the park… literally a walk….

For most of his wins Crowley has barely pushed a button on him. He had to work harder last time out at Longchamp but I blame the ground for that. He’s back on easier ground this tomorrow and he just ticks all the boxes for me.

Good luck for Saturday it’s sure to be a brilliant days racing!

PS There were some comments last week complaining about there being two different racing threads on Saturdays. Both Rizzel and Cairnzy are worthy of their own thread, in the same way we have multiple football tipsters who sometimes cover the same matches and we did this regularly when Thommo and Voice of Value both posted Saturday tips.
