LAVENDER'S BLUE IS SOLID ON SPEED AND FORM

 

LAVENDER'S BLUE (nap) rates top on the clock for this 11-runner Group 2 contest, courtesy of her running on fourth to Billesdon Brook over a mile at Newmarket last October.

Encountering trouble in running on that occasion, she could arguably have gone even faster, but it did at least show that she is still on an upward curve.

A Group 3 winner at Sandown on her previous outing, and successful on debut at Newmarket earlier in the season, this tough and consistent filly has what it takes to land today's one grade higher affair, following an absence from the track of just over eight months.

A 6-1 shot with Ladbrokes and Coral at the time of writing, those odds or bigger should be taken.

BILLESDON BROOK was just denied by Nazeef in a one mile Listed race at Kempton on her return a fortnight ago, and can be a tough and consistent sort when firing on all cylinders. Very much at home over a galloping mile on rain softened ground, as she proved when scoring at Newmarket last season, all looks set for the mare to run another big race this afternoon, even more so as the race is likely to be run to suit. As big as 20-1 with Coral and Bet Victor at the time of writing, I'll definitely be a player and not a watcher at those kind of odds.

 

Royal Ascot 2-25 Group 2 (Class 1) 12f

LTO Speed: Trefoil 109 Miss Yoda 96 Golden Lips 94

TREFOIL (nb) proved she had trained on when finishing third to Run Wild in a ten furlong Listed event at Newmarket nine days ago, a performance that also saw her register a list-dominant speed rating of 109. Likely to be straighter for the run today, and to appreciate this step up to a mile and a half, she will do fro me at her generally available odds of 5-1. Race favourite Frankly Darling trotted up in a ten furlong maiden at Newcastle a fortnight ago, but she didn't beat much on that occasion, and the time of the race was nothing to write home about.

 

Chelmsford 7-15 Handicap (Class 6) 10f

 Apache Blaze  58  50  57  38  33  58  (--)

LTO Speed: Pioneering 71 Lady Of York 61 Luxford 54

PIONEERING wasn't for catching over this track and trip last week, with his ready victory in a Class 6 handicap translating into a list-topping speed rating of 71. Taking on similar class rivals this evening, the selection should take plenty of pegging back again, especially as a predicted even pace will suit his style of racing.

 

Thirsk 2-40 Handicap (Class 6) 8f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Destroyer  85  (27)  (47)  (49)  (29)  85  74
 The Big House  74  (58)  67  74  61  51  62
 Lagenda  69  (54)  (59)  (49)  36  39  65
 Dreamseller  67  (69)  (56)  67  (18)  60  (48)

LTO Speed: Dreamseller 69 Roaring Forties 63 Scorched Breath 63

DESTROYER failed to shine on the all-weather at Newcastle towards the back end of last year, but did post a couple of speed ratings of note on his previous two starts on turf, most notably when finishing a close up third to Hammer Gun at Pontefract in September. Granted, the selection is at his best on faster ground than he is likely to encounter this afternoon, which is why I'm going to suggest that this forecast 14-1 shot is backed each-way. But win, lose or draw here, this potentially well handicapped 7yo son of Royal Applause is worth sticking in your notebook.

 

Windsor 6-30 Handicap (Class 5) 6f

 Horse  Best  Lto  2nd  3rd  4th  5th  6th
 Gold At Midnight  84  51  (59)  (63)  (53)  (64)  81
 Porto Ferro  84  (41)  (42)  (60)  (56)  (49)  (56)
 Seprani  83  80  (59)  (62)  (69)  42  83
 King Crimson  80  17  32  65  80  --  --

LTO Speed: Seprani 80 Momtathil 72 True Belief 68

SEPRANI ran out of petrol at the business end of a seven furlong handicap at Yarmouth a fortnight ago, yet still managed to post a speed rating big enough to put her in premier position on the LTO speed list. An 83 horse on the master speed list, the mare obviously has what it takes to win a race of this nature, while this sharper track and shorter trip of six furlongs can do nothing but boost her chances of success tonight.
