Ascot 5.35

Ascot 5.35 5 Outer Space @ 20/1 / 8 My Dad Syd @ 6/1 (odds to 4th) 1/2 point each way each horse

A 7 furlongs Class 4 sprint is not one of the better races today but one where I think some profit
can be made. The historic draw bias here is high; it seemed to favour those drawn high on the straight Course
yesterday, and unlike at the Royal meeting they are not under huge pressure to water to remove a bias, so
I have looked middle to high draw wise. MY DAD SYD looks the solid form benchmark and with De Souza
in the saddle is sure to be out to win. I do think that Madrinho is finally coming down to a mark it can win from,
but the one that really caught my eye was OUTER SPACE. It could be very well handicapped off a mark of 82;
has good Course form, won off 87 last year; this is possibly its best chance since and looks over-priced at
20/1 with Odds to 4th place and Trainer Jamie Osborne, has a good record here at Ascot.
