Ascot Saturday Night Previews

 Jul 28 2017

Princess Margaret Juddmonte Stakes

Dance Diva is unbeaten in three having beaten her stablemate and subsequent Super Sprint third Maggies Angel in a Listed race at Newmarket. She appreciates a bit of cut and her latest win was a big step up in performance having been green in her first two victories.

Nyaleti boasts strong juvenile form having been runner-up behind a couple of smart O’Brien fillies in the Chesham at Royal Ascot and the Duchess Of Cambridge at Newmarket.

Spring Cosmos made a winning debut when she found plenty at Newmarket and should be a big danger with natural improvement.

Mistress Of Venice was fourth in the Albany and fourth behind Nyaleti at Newmarket. She edged left there on the quicker ground and this surface could see her kick on again.

Selections: 1 Dance Diva, 5 Nyaleti, 7 Spring Cosmos, 2 Mistress Of Venice

Gigaset International Stakes

Makzeem had to race under a penalty after winning at Newmarket when second in the Silver Bunbury Cup. He’s clearly thrived with the drop back to this trip and now gets to race off a three pound lower mark.

Viscount Barfield has hit peak form following up a York win with a career-best effort when winning a Listed race at Chester. He’s clearly taken a giant step forward and his latest win puts him extremely well in back in handicap company.

Fawaareq made a promising return before a near three month break and a really good third in the Silver Bunbury Cup. He acts on any surface and looks to be improving.

Above The Rest met trouble behind Viscount Barfield at York but put in a career best effort when winning the Bunbury Cup and is clearly on a good mark.

Selections: 20 Makzeem, 13 Viscount Barfield, 17 Fawaareq, 5 Above The Rest

King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes

Ulysses had always promised to progress as a four-year-old and he duly followed a third in the Prince Of Wales’s with a Group 1 win in the Eclipse in a brilliant finish with Barney Roy. Sir Michael Stoute feels he’ll stay the extra trip fine. He was fourth over it behind Highland Reel in the Breeders’ Cup Turf but he’s a different horse now having learnt to settle.

Highland Reel is a six time Group 1 winner and the globetrotting superstar is looking to follow his win in this race last year and couldn’t head here in better form having won the Coronation Cup and the Prince Of Wales’s Stakes.

Enable has been superb winning four from five and followed her brilliant Oaks win with an equally dominant performance in the Irish equivalent. She's well clear of her own sex as a three-year-old and now steps up against the colts and her elders.

Desert Encounter ran a remarkable third in the Eclipse behind Ulysses. The extra trip is in his favour, he handles any ground and is clearly an improving horse at five.

Selections: 7 Ulysses, 2 Highland Reel, 10 Enable, 1 Desert Encounter
