Best From The West: Ascot – 12th March 2022

The pattern toward the WA Classics is another step closer with the running of the JC Roberts for the boys and the Natasha for the girls.

Betting would suggest the former is a one way street although as you head up in distance you can see things develop quickly.

As for the fillies happy to back one here now out to the 1 3⁄8 m in the form of Fine Romance.

The daughter of So You Think is now crying out for the trip and from the draw should be able to sit much closer than she did in the 1000 Guineas.

There isn't that much between all of them so giving away track position is never a smart thing.

That and the added 2 f can bring her and the winner much closer together so we'll take the bigger price.

Earlier in the day, a Ratings78+ over the short course sees those closest to the top weight claiming away which won't make its job any easier.

We fancy Chantorque can run well fresh this time around now getting 12lbs off Panzdown.

The mare has won six times with five of them coming here and three over this 5 f course.

Last time in she ran in a Jungle Mist and Jungle Dawn and was very creditable in both when not beaten far.

The small field will help here as she can get back but rarely do they run these races slowly so her final furlong will see her charging.
