Terry Leighton

Race 1 — Without Reason

Expecting to see this big (grey) bloke roll forward and either breeze or find the top. Was a big winner three starts ago, before having minimal luck at his last two. Is by far and away the stayer with the most scope in this, and he’ll appreciate the return to Ascot. I’ve marked him far shorter than the current $4 or so on offer and he’s clearly my best.

BACK (WIN) — Without Reason

Race 9 – Moschard + Position Of Power

No prizes for dutching this pair, but if we can double our money for one of the two winning, I’m happy to get pretty heavily involved. Position Of Power was not at his best after a little freshen up last time out, though I have a lot of trust in the stable to turn that around in a very ordinary race. The appointment of the Pontiff on a soft looking map is key.

Moschard is arguably in career-best form after a fast-finishing fourth in the Hannan’s Handicap (racing out of his grade). Should land three back the fence here, and with any luck in the straight, I’m expecting a Mitchy Pateman salute as he crosses the line. He’d be my slight lean.

BACK (WIN) — Moschard to win

BACK (WIN) — Position Of Power to win


Daniel Cripps

Race 8 – Great Shot

I thought the old boy was ready for retirement, but his last run and most recent trial makes me want to believe he’s still got a good performance or two left in him yet. Somehow gets in on the minimum despite being near the top of the ratings and maps to find the front. If he can recapture anything near his best, he will give them something to catch at big odds.

BACK (WIN) — Great Shot to Place
