Daily Double July 24

SEAMOUR (2.55 Ascot), as regular readers may know by now, is something of a favourite of this blog. He ran a blinder from a horror draw in the Northumberland Plate and was beaten only two lengths. Today he goes in the Brown Jack Handicap at Ascot and I think he’ll gain compensation. The heavens are expected to open at Ascot this morning and could turn the ground soft. That will suit Seamour who won in wet ground over hurdles. The other tip is…

SATURN LACE (3.05 Thirsk), who has been consistent without getting his head in front. He looks leniently treated and ran very well behind Blossomtime at Doncaster last time. He gets 21lb from the promising Dark Defender and can make the concession pay.

Be lucky!

    Hi Jason,

    I suppose that I had better hold my hands up! Ok, I was stupid.

    On the other hand, I had suggested Madame Chiang at 33-1, and she started at 8-1. Also, there were three withdrawals from the race. If there had been another three Madame Chiang would have been a convincing winner. Also she readily accounted for that top flight horse Cookie Crumbles – I think that’s what it’s called – and also netted for her owners the not inconsiderable amount of £67000.00 booty.

    Have I won the argument about my inspired choice? Thought not!

    Better luck next week.


    PS i must remember that Salvo ran yesterday, and not next week.

    Hi Jason,

    Congrats on Seamour.

    Just a quick thought about the King George tomorrow. All things being equal we probably all hope to see the Derby winner, Golden Horn, triumph in style. Unless the going comes up like Ascot in October – and even then – the favourite will win.

    Before you fall off your chair laughing at my stupidity, allow me to suggest the following animal as an each way proposition.

    Madame Chiang, available this afternoon at 33-1. Last October this filly won the distaff race at the Chumpions meeting. She came with a late run to beat Silk sari and Chiquita by a comfortable two lengths after being last for most of the way. She obviously enjoys heavy going, and I believe she has a sporting win and place chance if the going remains as it is .

    This season Madame Chiang has had but a single outing, and I confess that I know not why, but that was a reasonable run behind Secret Gesture at York, when she was running on at the finish, over a trip a furlong and a half shorter than tomorrow’s race.
