Best From The West: Ascot – 7th January 2023

After the sadness of Perth Cup Day, things try to regroup again at Ascot this Saturday with some value runners.

Main race is the Easingwold Stakes and in the first sign of some form in a while, Samizdat might be on the way back and could be a play.

The now 7yo was back last when dropping in grade and having to come very wide turning.

He won't need to be so far off them in this sized field and from the gate could even land midfield on the fence.

Having raced in black type for a while, that ease in company did help albeit there were some very decent horses in that event.

Can't be confident after such a long run of outs but he can run a race at odds.

Happy to think that Fiorucci Mama yet again will take a world of beating in Race 3 despite being into Saturday metro grade.

The filly likes to sit on the speed and it has taken her a long way recently.

She scored at Belmont and then ran again quickly at Northam, leading all the way.

Do like that she has been putting margins on them and the scale here, plus the 7lbs claim, makes her very dangerous once again.


EACH WAY PLAY (1): Race 3 #1 Fiorucci Mama @ $5.00

EACH WAY PLAY (2): Race 8 #2 Samizdat @ $21.00
