Best From The West: Ascot – 22nd April 2023

We come back off the high of the grand Quokka meeting to a fairly small field program this time around.

The Listed Sheila Gwynne Classic is the main race but only six turn up so we'll leave that race alone.

Even though favourite, there appears a decent price around the form of Kings Sicario as he now gets to be third up over the mile – a time and tested formula.

Resuming he rattled home to win over 6 f and then second time out came from off midfield to place.

He should be able to get midfield again or better from a lovely draw and now being fitter too.

Punters might have varying opinions in this race come race day so we could get even better odds.

In the race before, we see the Daniel & Ben Pearce stable going very well this month and Fear The Wind is a good enough price in the staying race.

After several runs this campaign at the mile, he stepped up to this journey and got to the line well.

He has to be better for that run at a trip and given he is by Fiorente, he will be very happy to be toughing it out at 1 3⁄8 m again.

Hoping a few drop off after a defeat as favourite at Pinjarra.
