Best From The West: Ascot – 9th May 2020

On what isn’t the easiest card at Ascot, we’ll play early in the day.

Race 3 is a competitive 3yo race but with the benefit of two runs back, Platinum Bullet can be winning again.

Remember back to the Summer carnival when she was taking on the likes of Jericho Missile and Kay Cee in listed races.

The way she finished off last week, she should graduate back into Saturday grade without a problem.

She will probably get back from the draw but in the small field that won't be as big a concern.

Later in the day, there is some value in Sir Snugalot coming from Albany to the city.

He stepped up in ground last time and sitting near the speed was able to draw away late.

A dry track is essential to his hopes but with his good fitness base and a lovely barrier, Chris Graham can have him in a prominent spot all the way.

In an open race, luck in running is always crucial and often makes the biggest difference.
