Sunday 20th October Listed Stakes Bet !!!

Not great day yesterday for blog at Ascot, with both selections under performing.In particular Mareek in British Champions Sprint,running very poorly after playing up in stalls and then completely missing the break, that more or less put paid to his chance in the race.

The second bet on Talent in British Champions fillies & mares had every chance ,though had to settle for third behind impressive winner Seal of Approval .Overall disappointing day with £256 loss .

Moving quickly on to Sunday we have decent looking 1 mile listed race at Naas for fillies and mares on ground described as yielding/soft .

3.15 NAAS 1 MILE FILLIES & MARES GARNET LISTED STAKES :
13 runners declared for 1 mile fillies & mares listed race .This looks competitive race with plenty possible chances, the three main contenders  Pearl Of Africa ,Rasmeyaa & Spinacre

PEARL OF AFRICA : Improving filly landing hatrick in July .Creditable efforts on her last two starts in group company ,finishing good third behind Say in group three at Curragh in September .Also finished good fourth last time behind the useful Belle De Crecy in group two Blandford stakes.Should go well with this drop in class.

RASMEYAA : Lightly raced filly ,Impressive winner of maiden at Leopardstown last October .Well supported for 1000 guineas at Newmarket in May ,though finished disappointing 14th .Returned to form last time finishing good third behind Fiesolana in group three contest over 7 furlongs .Looks open to improvement over this longer trip .

SPINACRE :Decent two year old for Kevin Prendergast last season winning two races,including listed race at Curragh .Hasn't shown much this season though has been highly tried in group company .Has first start for Roger Varian today and takes drop in class ,though will need bounce back after some disappointing efforts recently .

VERDICT : Rasmeyaa looks open to plenty improvement after just four starts, and has to be respected after finishing good third  in group company last time .However odds around 5-2 look very short in competitive race .

PEARL OF AFRICA  reunited with Johnny Murtagh, looks solid here after putting two creditable efforts in group company .Will be suited by this drop in class and returning to 1 mile. Odds around 9-2 look fair value .

PEARL OF AFRICA 3.15 NASS 
0.50 PTS EACH-WAY @ 9-2 BETVICTOR* .CORALS*
