Best From The West: Ascot – 2nd May 2020

It is another big card at Ascot with the Northam features forced to be run here.

Going for Chris Graham to have a good day riding some horses at odds starting with Baby Blues in race 4.

Jumping from the inside alley, she can position up right with the lead division. She has done well following that pattern in recent times.

Getting too far back last outing, her fitness and early speed can see her much better positioned this time around.

It will help her very much over the mile should there have been any sort of concern at the distance. Happy to play her both totes.

In Race 5, now that she has found the winner's spot, Dark Choice can go on with it.

That win wasn't expected going off the betting but now up to the 2200m and with that 3kg claim, she can win again.

It was only twelve months back that she won the WA Oaks and was not all far off Regal Power in the Derby.

At this journey she might roll to be midfield or even closer and be the one to beat again at odds.
