Best From The West: Ascot – 30th April 2022

Not really a top drawer card in Perth as we close on the end of the Ascot season before heading to Belmont.

The main race is the Sheila Gwynne Classic and in this Listed race, we see the clash of a couple of girls from two weeks ago.

In that Marjorie Charleson Classic, Buzzoom got 2kg off the winner and was still at 1200m in that race when Amasenus went past her late.

This time, at a more preferable trip and now with 3.5kg the difference, things are working into the filly's favour.

It looks like a good race to be sitting a little closer now and maybe ask those above her to carry their imposts as she gets weight off all of them.

Earlier in the day, Hardly Ever goes second up in a 1200m 3yo handicap where she will be better for that initial outing.

Sitting back in a small field, she worked to the line nicely but this distance will suit more.

Ironically she was second to Buzzoom in a similar race back in October and appears well in here.

We won't want her giving away too much start but in this sized field, won't ever be a long way back.
