Tomorrow at Towcester

I had intended to give you all a 10/1 winner at Ascot this Saturday but the weather intervened... Still, I have a place in a car going to Towcester tomorrow so, as a replacement for a 10/1 winner at Ascot, here's a few short priced disappointments for this meeting instead.

The 2.10 looks a poor race full of inconsistent sorts with only Milton Des Bieffes making any appeal and he's the selection. The Weekender touts top weight Yvanovitch as having an each way chance; if eight go to post he is of interest at 10/1 or more.

I saw Trading Up win impressively over course and distance in a similar race on similar ground in November; as the opposition is modest, he's taken to repeat the trick in the 2.40. The likely SP of 3/1 could be value.

I'll be looking to get Evelith Forrest beaten in the 3.10. Tom George's What A Scientist has the best chance of doing so but Coorbawn Vic may also be worth a small interest at a big price after showing improved form in his last race at Haydock.

The 3.40 looks a match between Quirino and Esprit Saint; I prefer the latter.

Milton Des Bieffes won at 13/8. Yvanovitch looked all over the winner two out before unseating rider at 14/1 (although I bet this horse at 28/1 on course).

Trading Up was sent off 3/1 favourite but ran a lifeless race and was pulled up after one circuit.

What A Scientist won at 9/2 beating 1/4 favourite Evelith Forrest. Coorbawn Vic was third at 14/1.

Quirino (2/1) and Esprit Saint (8/13) fought out a ding dong battle up the hill with the former prevailing by a head.
