Best From The West: Ascot – 20th February 2021

The Detonator Stakes is a middle distance race as the feature on the Ascot program.

It is not exactly filled with in form or quality conveyances and so we are happy to take a young mare on the rise second up.

Montelena was good for everyone last year when she put multiple wins back to back and while not winning first up was good late.

She was way back after giving away way too much ground and you can clearly see from the form and the style of racing that the added furlong has to help.

As long as Chris Parnham is on his bike before the corner, she will rattle home under the light weight.

A little earlier there is a competitive 7 f sprint and we are going for one who comes out of different form as Downforce can continue the winning ways.

He has put three very good runs back to back and now drops to 122lbs with Steven Parnham up.

From the lovely gate he can race a lot closer this time which could be critical.

Happy to back him each way as he continues to make improvement even into Saturday grade.
