Leg 1 - Trueshan

Although there hasn’t been any serious rain in the last few days, Ascot in October usually means there is a good chance that there will be a mention of ‘soft’ in the going description somewhere, and although that may suit a few contenders, there’s an argument to suggest that Trueshan may be the pick of the bunch.

Trained by Alan King, the five-year-old was an excellent winner of the Cadran on very soft ground at Longchamp last time out, beating the likes of Stradivarius and Princess Zoe, who will reoppose again, and King told Tote.co.uk that he is happy to “roll the dice” on what will be Trueshan’s last run of the year. 

That win in Paris was his second of the season after also winning the Goodwood Cup on soft ground, confirming that he really does need conditions to suit. In fact, his record on going that is described as soft or heavier currently reads 1162811, and that also includes victory in this race last year.

Leg 2 - Rohaan

They’ll be plenty of names who could rise to mount a challenge in the Sprint Stakes, but the best of them could come from Rohaan who already has two course and distance wins to his name from earlier this season, including when winning the Wokingham Stakes at the Royal meeting.

That came on similar conditions to what he is likely to face again at Ascot, and considering he had the better of Dragon Symbol when also winning at Haydock in May, he’d have to be a big player despite the competitive looking nature of this field.

Leg 3 - Snowfall

Alpinista is four from four this season but connections decided to head back to Germany for another Group One assignment, rather than running here, otherwise she may have been the pick of this field.

Her absence means that Aidan O'Brien's Snowfall is officially rated the best horse in the field by some way at 120, and carries 6lb less thanks to the weight for age allowance, than her next best rated rival in Albaflora on 110.

Snowfall hasn't quite been at her very best on her last two starts, but if she can just replicate the form that saw her finish sixth in the Arc, then you'd have to think that would be enough to win this race, especially with no other real stand out candidate in the race.

Leg 4 - Palace Pier

Palace Pier suffered what has been the only defeat in his career so far when finishing third in this race last year, but after going unbeaten in four starts this season, he’ll be hoping to improve on last year’s showing.

There were excuses for him that day because after an awkward start, it was later reported by the Vet that Palace Pier had lost his left fore shoe, so perhaps on the face of it, he did well to finish just over three lengths back in first.

If you are happy to forgive him for that, then he is clearly the one to beat here, especially after winning back at Ascot when taking the Queen Anne Stakes at the Royal meeting.

Leg 5 - Addeybb

Run over 1m2f, this is a race that has been won by many of the modern greats, including names such as Frankel. This year’s renewal looks as equally competitive on paper, with last year’s winner Addeybb, who was also 2nd in 2019, aiming to follow in the hoofprints of the likes of Cracksman, Twice Over and Alborada in winning back-to-back renewals.

He’ll arrive in good form as he attempts to defend his crown from 12 months ago, as he was a winner of the Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick in April, before following up with a runner-up effort behind St Mark’s Basilica in the Eclipse at Sandown.

He was lightly raced in his prep last season, but did run twice on UK soil before Champions Day, so the fact he hasn’t been seen on a racecourse since the start of July would be a slight concern. However, his record when fresh is enough for punters to remain confident, especially when the well-fancied Mishriff wouldn’t be a great fan of the softer ground.

Leg 6 - Aldaary

The Balmoral Handicap is never an easy race to tackle for punters, with three of the last five winners returning with double figure win dividends at the Tote.

There are plenty that could get themselves in the mix, but one who looks set to be suited by conditions is the William Haggas-trained Aldaary. He’s already been a winner twice at Ascot this season, including last time out on heavy ground in the Challenge Cup.

That gives him the big field handicap experience that will be necessary here, although he may need to improve over the straight mile, a distance he was last seen finishing midfield at York. The best of his form has been over 7f, but with Ascot clearly being a track that he likes, you’d be happy to give him the benefit of the doubt.
