It’s quite clear to any fan of racing that today’s card at Ascot looks absolutely box office. With some key clashes in the big races, alongside some competitive betting heats, means that it will be a fascinating prospect to sit back and enjoy. However, with how excited I would be at the prospect of watching the racing this afternoon, the appeal of betting on that Ascot card doesn’t rate highly in my ‘to-do’ list. There are so many different possibilities and with a lot of horses coming off hard races throughout the year – it may be prudent to stand clear and allow the traffic through. Instead, I am going to dip into the relatively unknown meetings of the day at Ffos Las and Leopardstown, and attempt to make some sense from them.

Starting off with Ffos Las, and the 4.00 race, which is a quality 4 runner Novice Handicap Chase. Despite the withdrawal of Cadzand from this contest, it still looks an attractive race on paper with a case to be made for all four runners. However, I am going to be siding with the proven class in this race and hope that another year on the back will work the oracle for Pic D’Orhy. Despite not being overly convincing in his brief spell chasing last year, he still ran some nice races in defeat – most notably when tipping up when cantering beside Chantry House at Ascot with 3 fences to go. He returns to a Novice Handicap on this occasion at the trip of 2m5f could well assist him getting into rhythm. If that’s the case, the general 9/4 available may well prove to be the answer. 

The 4.35 is the feature race on the card, with the 2m Welsh Champion Hurdle looking a fascinating renewal of the race. Ballyandy tops the weights, which adds plenty of flavour to the contest, and there certainly seems to be a few horses in here with nice profiles coming into this race. Perhaps the most notable for me is Cormier, who has the benefit of race fitness alongside some good hurdle form. He last was seen over hurdles finishing second behind Copperless in the Swinton at Haydock, and was in front of Camprond and Rowland Ward that day, who have back the form up nicely. He comes across as a horse who should be better than a mark of 133, and as a result I’ll be backing him. 888Sport are offering 5/1 on Cormier with 4 places available and although that is a poor each way price, I will be backing him each way.

I’m then heading to Leopardstown for the last race on the card, which is the 5.25 – 1m4f November Handicap and has attracted a strong field of 20 to the party. I will be looking to play two horses in this line-up, as it’s a tricky race and one that should be monitored very closely in the markets. Sentiment should play no part in betting, but I would find it hard to enter this race without backing Yafordadoe, who has been in rich form for connections since returning to the track in recent weeks. He came an excellent second at Listowel behind Rebellito, before winning last time out at Tipperary. That form has also been upgraded by the second and despite having to compete off seven pounds higher in this grade, he might not be done improving. At a price of 17/2 with SkyBet, who offer 6 places, he is an each way bet. 

I’m also keen to play another in this race, and I will be siding with The Names Jock for the evergreen John Kiely, who had the winner of the big handicap last week at the Curragh and will be looking for the same again here. This horse has a decent record in big field flat handicaps around this course and the trip of 1m4f should not inconvenience him. He has been in good recent form over hurdles also, so he arrives in good health and should be competitive off a mark of 86. With the race likely to be run to suit, I am hoping that The Names Jock will be able to stay on past horses and be involved in the business end of the race. At a price of 16/1 with SkyBet, he is also an each way bet.
