RACE 7 TABTOUCH-REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP:THE ROAD TO ASCOT 4:30 PM (1216M)
This is an interesting heat of the Regional Championships, with the top-four automatically qualifying for the $100,000 Final at Ascot next Saturday. We’re quite keen on the chances of TUDOR BOLT, who we believe has the best peak form of any horse in the race. Has rated as high as 73 in the past, however, it has slipped down to 67, which is super-low for a horse of his ability. Didn’t get a lot of galloping room when resuming here last month and while the 39 days between runs is a concern, we still feel he has the class to pull through in this event. TUDOR BOLT each way, DUTCH SPY is being set a tough task stepping into this company after his impressive last start maiden win. Gate hurts, but we still expect him to be charging home late. DUSHA ZACHISTKI is a horse with more than his share of talent and he posted some pretty decent results when last in work. Had excuses when resuming at Ascot recently and we’re on the lookout for sharp improvement, while ANISAU is a four-year-old with plenty of upside. Races first up here without a trial, but did salute when kicking off his previous preparation.
Suggested Bet: (4) TUDOR BOLT each way.
