A Maiden Stakes over 6f on Standard going.
Twelve runners aged from six-year-olds to three. Very few horse are priced to have any particular chance. In fact, just four horses are prices 10-1 and less at the time of writing.
For many punters, this race is all about one horse. Tom Marquand is booked to ride Richard Hannon's twice raced Ashwaq. This chestnut filly is a daughter of Sepoy in the ownership of Al Shaqab Racing. She was bought in a private sale at Arqana Deaville August Yearling Sales 2015 for 200,000E. We saw a promising run on debut at Newmarket when racing over 7f priced 8-1. Returning in November, this February foal finished second when losing by half a length at odds of 10/11f. She is likely to be odds-on today.
A big shout.
