    I'd be wary of Limato after his last two runs-the owner seems worried enough that he will remember bad experiences.

    I will be laying Ribchester on Tuesday -there will be no way back for me if he wins.

    Cheeky swine. Anyways, even if he doesn't run I know I'll bag a good winner this week! Danzeno for one will be half the current price once declared on Thursday.

    I don't see what beats him to be honest. Not much strength in depth in the field.

    Lightning Spear looks the only danger, but he has to improve to beat Ribchester

    I'm not judging but can you really get pleasure out of that approach to betting?

    Sorry I quoted the wrong post!

    I meant this one of course

    Ribchester's unproven on fast ground, while Lightning Spear will positively relish it. EW the latter is surely the way to go.

    Only asking this for guidance, not contention but why should a Pivotal relish the fast ground? Thanks

    Ascot can be a very tough meeting-anyone chasing losses or betting beyond their means could easily find themselves in trouble.I really want to be against Ribchester tomorrow -if he wins he wins I will be happy to watch a recording of the racing every night without knowing the results.I will save a bullet for Winning Ways in the Jersey.

    I'm very proud of Lightning Spear and I was pleased with him, but he did get tired in the last half-furlong. I'd like to think he'll come on and we'd love to get him back on fast ground 14Jun16 Ascot
    Lightening Spear is a very nice horse to have inherited and that was a really nice run. We might put him in a Listed or Group 3 race, just he can enjoy a win, but after that I could see him doing a bit of travelling later in the year. I think on fast ground you'll see him in his true colours - David Simcock, trainer.

    Just my opinion, but Ribchester is a grinder, rather than a quickener, and fast ground wouldn't be in his favour.

    Fast ground will catch a lot of them out.
    Cougar Mountain ew could be a bet as he wants it runway fast.

    See. The debate was well-worth starting.

    No reason why better ground won't suit him, One to look out for.
    Are you still keen on Afaak in the Britannia, Fonz?

    My own fancy Naval Warfare now withdrawn.

    A horse that beat Naval Warfare last season, so therefore must be good imho, (Maths Prize), is due to run.

    Just to recap my logic...

    Naval Warfare beat the massive recent Tim Easterby improver, Golden Apollo, last season, so if Math's Prize has beaten Naval Warfare, she could be very well-handicapped.

    Hence I've got it between Afaak and Maths Prize.

    There'll be little surprise if Slim comes up trumps with Son Of The Stars though.

    Ah well, looked to me like it was its class that won it rather than the appreciation of the ground
