Best From The West: Ascot – 8th May 2021

It is a case of sticking with winners as the philosophy this weekend in Perth.

We're happy to side again with Marocchino after the nice result in the Diggers Up as he now takes on the Eurythmic Stakes.

Back up to the 2150m, he had won at 2200m then the Albany Cup at 2100m before dropping to the 1800m and still be successful.

There he beat home Trap For Fools and Come Play With Me and while he meets them both on worse terms, he is winning while they haven't found their elite ways for some time.

If he can just slot in behind the leaders, he can keep attacking the line and taking the winning purse home.

Again those winners are the ones we fancy as Billy Ain't Silly chases four wins on the bounce.

This 3yo has raced right on the speed in his sprint races and toughed it out strongly from there.

While this is a stronger grade of race, he gets the commensurate reduction in weight and on top of that the 2kg claim is a bonus.

When it comes time to sprint, he could well be off and gone.
