14:40 Ascot – Ballotin (BEST ODDS 6/1 with William Hill)
Ballotin looks a great bet for this race and I’m really happy that this race has ended up with 8 runners in it because this horse might be worth an each-way bet at the price. He’s a distance winner who should find this good to soft going (and has won on it before) easier to run on than the very soft ground he experienced in France last time out. His trainer has been in good form and this horse has the fitness advantage over some of his rivals in this field. He should go well.
