Best From The West: Ascot – 9th October 2021

Racing has made the big return to Ascot for the summer racing period.

The Perth 3yo Classic is the highlight of the day and it includes a raft of young horses with wins in nice races.

One of them is the close relation to Arcadia Queen as Arcadia Grace heads to the races for the second time.

She only won a 5 f Northam maiden jumping from the inside but drove through and held a decent position.

From there she only got a run from the 1 f mark but once through she sprinted like Usain Bolt with her ears pricked.

In this company, with many more good horses running, they will go faster and that should mean it's easier for her to get the necessary gaps.

Pike naturally sticks with her and sitting down on the limit, she might just explode away again.

There is another good 5 f race earlier where some fast horses are engaged.

Even though she is now a 5yo mare, Miss Conteki has some very strong factors in her favour.

While her overall record is excellent, it is even better at Ascot with seven starts producing six wins.

Five of her career wins are at this distance and she is unbeaten in three goes resuming.

As long as the track is not affected by rain nor overly leaderish, you can expect her to be rattling home here.
