I’m really looking forward to riding at Ascot tomorrow as I love the Shergar Cup. I’m captain of the Ladies team which includes myself, Nicola Currie and Mickaëlle Michel who is coming over from France – we’ll be doing all we can to win!
Saturday at Ascot
12:50 – Tone the Barone
I’ve won on Tone the Barone
13/2 before – he’s won over course and distance twice. He’s also won fresh which is in our favour as he hasn’t run for a while. He’s going to need a personal best though as he’s crept up in the weights over the years.
1:25 – Indigo Times
Another horse I’ve ridden and won on. I think Indigo Times
10/1 would probably have been favourite if it had been on the all-weather as his form is better on the all-weather which is the only concern for me.
2:00 – Master The Stars
Master The Stars
15/2 has won twice over 1m2f but has won well over 1m4f – I think if I can get him to switch off he could run a big race.
2:35 – Bear Force One
Bear Force One
14/1 ran well after a break last time out. He didn’t have his cheek pieces on last time which he has back on tomorrow and is only 2lbs higher than his last win. I think he has a great chance at a decent price.
3:10 – Barn Owl
7/2 is a very well bred horse – out of Thistle Bird by Frankel. I don’t want the ground to go too soft but he’s lightly raced, only had five runs and has run well off his current mark. He’s probably one of my best rides.
All the best,
