Lucky 15 Tip 1: Gold Present in the 2:25 at Ascot
The fact that Nicky Henderson’s Gold Present has been mentioned as a Gold Cup possible, is indicative of the talent he possesses. It may be that the Grand National proves to be the ultimate target, but first he tackles this Listed Handicap. One of the best jumpers of a fence in training, he gave Frodon weight and a beating last time out, and with that rival now going in the day’s big Grade 1, we fancy Gold Present will be up to taking this.
Lucky 15 Tip 2: Call Me Lord in the 2:45 at Wincanton
Ch’Tibello sets a useful standard here having been second to The New One last time out. He was receiving 6lbs from that rival that day though, over a trip which may be short of The New Ones best these days. Connections reach for the tongue tie in an effort to squeeze out more. Take him on with another runner from the yard of Nicky Henderson, Call Me Lord.
Two from three for Henderson to date, his only disappointment came when seemingly badly in need of the run on his first outing this season. Bouncing right back to form when winning easily at Sandown last time, he seemed to relish the heavy ground that day, and under similar conditions here, he may well prove tough to beat.
Lucky 15 Tip 3: Fixe Le Kap in the 3:00 at Ascot
Take Nicky Henderson to hit the scoreboard yet again here with Fixe Le Kap. This one boasts a number of excellent efforts to his name, with runners up finishes behind the likes of Frodon and London Prize in particular catching the eye. The bare form of those runs would give him every chance, and with improvement possible on what will be his first run since a wind op, he looks well worth a punt.
Lucky 15 Tip 2: Waiting Patiently in the 3:35 at Ascot
Like the majority of racing fans, we would love to see one last hurrah for Cue Card before he heads into retirement. Whilst we do see him going well here, he may be biting off more than he can chew, with the talented trio of Top Notch, Coney Island and Waiting Patiently in opposition. Best of that trio for us is the rising talent that is Waiting Patiently.
Brought to a peak by the sadly departed Malcolm Jefferson, his daughter Ruth has now taken over the training of this son of Flemensfirth. To win a Listed contest by eight lengths last time out was a fine effort, but it was the effortless manner in which he achieved such a result which really marked him out as horse to follow. He looks like getting his favoured ground here and we suspect he will prove tough to beat.
