The promising SON SON should be hard to beat in Race 3 of the day at Ascot. The Adam Durrant-trained galloper has won three of six and resumed with a victory over the 1200m, going 2.8 lengths faster than standard benchmark before tackling the 1100m on a Heavy track on May 5 when he was just run down late by Divine Pair. The son of Rogano went more than seven lengths faster than standard that day and might be open to improvement at his third run back from a spell. He has had three runs over the 1400m for two wins and a runner-up effort at Ascot, while he will camp forward in a race that lacks huge amounts of pressure up front.

I don’t mind DIVINE PAIR at a bit of a price in Race 5 of the day. The last start winner from the Colin Webster stable is at the each-way quote in the early betting and scored on Heavy ground at the track and trip on May 5, defeating Son Son by more than a length. The three-year-old produced the fastest last 400m of the entire meeting that day and went nearly nine lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is better than what any horse in this race has ever produced. He faded over the 1400m prior to that but the shorter trips look to be his go and if the track is in or near the Soft range this will further boost his chances.

The feature of the day is the Roma Cup and we see the likes of Elite Street and Windstorm in action. But I am going with CUP NIGHT to take out the Group 3 affair. The five-year-old comes in with a slight fitness edge on some of the key players and resumed with a solid win at Group 3 level in the Northam Stakes on May 2. That was over the 1100m and he settled back before running on strongly in the closing stages. The Bernie Miller-trained galloper overcame a very slow tempo that day to run on. At his second run last time in he improved more than six lengths on benchmark figures to run a close up 4th in the Northerly Stakes (1400m), while his form at the track and trip reads as three wins from five starts. He should be suited by the pace in the race and with even luck in the early stages form the wide barrier he can run over the top of them late in the piece.
