Ascot 2.10

Ascot 2.10 14 Royal Birth @ 11/1 / 1 Danzeno @ 10/1 (odds to 4th/Sky to 6th) 1/2 point each way each horse 

The 2.10 at Ascot is a very competitive 5 furlong Sprint and this Class 2 race is as
you would imagine full of potential winners. One unusual aspect is the number who may be better at 6
furlongs who may therefore need luck in running. Of those I marginally favour DANZENO over Polybius;
both are drawn high, have good Course form and could get a nice tow off Lightscameraction who I think
will try to make all down the stands rail. Of the rest you have to consider Lexington Abbey but I just
wonder if it is quite as good as it was so I prefer ROYAL BIRTH who won this last year; gets what 
looks a plum draw and is favoured over old rival Robot Boy whose draw in stall 1 puts me off.
You always hope you get the draw right here as the likes of Yalta and Edward Lewis have only been
discarded on account of a low draw, so lets hope the research in to the high draw bias works out!
