Royal Ascot and Down Royal

The curtain is beginning to close on our time in Royal Ascot as we have runners on the penultimate day but we will be an all girl team today across the two cards as we have three fillies going to post.

PART CENTRAL only got going in the end of her race the last day and perhaps more could be made of her staying ability. This is a short trip for her and a quick turn around as she ran three days ago. She has had an easy time whilst in Ascot so hopefully her previous race didn’t take too much out of her. Declan McDonogh takes the ride today.

ZAYNAB has been a real revelation this year and has climbed the ranks nicely at the Curragh so the straight mile should suit her well. Unfortunately there has been no rain which is disappointing as it seems to have been vital to her previous successes. She has a fair weight and rating and will be ridden by Declan McDonogh.

Finally in Down Royal we have PERFECT CURVES in the 47-65 handicap. This mare is off a workable mark now and we are going to claim off her with Wayne Hassett who will take a further 5 off her back. It looks a competitive race where she can hopefully get her head near the front.
