On Saturday we are back at Ascot for decent looking card ,featuring the group one King George V1 & Queen Elizabeth Stakes , though for the blogs best bet, we are going concentrate on one the supporting races at Ascot .
9 runners declared for 7 furlong Pat Eddery listed stakes for two year old colts & geldings at 2.10 .This looks decent two year old contest on ground described as good/firm .The three main contenders look to be Dubai Hero , Monticello & Mutawatheb .
DUBAI HERO :Made impressive debut ,winning fair looking 7F maiden at Newmarket earlier this month .Came from last to first, after getting hampered at start .Winning in good style at finish .Looks open to plenty improvement for top connections .
MONTICELLO : Unbeaten in two starts over 7 furlongs,winning maiden at Sandown & novice stakes at Musselburgh.Making all on both occasions .Winning by 5 lenghs at Musselburgh last time,that didn't look the strongest contest ,though interesting contender for trainer Mark Johnston .
MUTAWATHEB : Made promising debut in 6 furlong maiden at Goodwood last month ,finishing close 2ND behind the useful Boynton (winner of G2 Superlative stakes since )Made no mistake last time, winning 14 runner 6F maiden at Newbury in good style .Looks open to plenty improvement over this longer trip .
VERDICT : Dubai Hero will be popular for Godolphin ,having made eyecatching debut at Newmarket,though odds around 5-2 look short enough for maiden winner, in what looks strong looking two year old listed contest .
At the prices MUTAWATHEB looks the each-way value .His Goodwood 2ND could hardly worked out better, with the first six from that race, all winning races since ,including the winner Boynton winning in G2 company at Newmarket since .This longer trip should also suit. Odds around 9-2 look decent value .
