15:35 Ascot – Un De Sceaux (BEST ODDS 8/15 with Ladbrokes)
There has been a big gamble on the second favourite in this race, Brain Power, who has been backed in from 5/1 to almost half that price in places. I can’t look beyond the classy Un De Sceaux though. Some people will use his age against him and while he is the oldest horse in the field, he’s also the classiest horse in the field. If Un De Sceaux is anywhere near his best form then I think he’ll blow Brain Power out of the water. He loves soft ground, he’s a dual course and distance winner and he won without getting out of second gear last time out. I’ll be shocked if he doesn’t win.
A £20 total stake returns £30.60 with Ladbrokes
