WORDSWORTH opened the season with a victory at Gowran and is expected to launch a big effort at Ascot in midweek.

Wordsworth didn’t really have to find top gear to get that one, just toughing it out more than anything.

He was runner up at Ascot at the Queen’s Vase last year and should be there.

ENEMY is another that brings winning form to the table after scoring a valuable handicap a couple of weeks ago at Musselburgh.

That firmly puts hm on the map for this one because he dominated the run.

More will be asked of him as he comes up in great, but Enemy looks competitive.

QUICKTHORN is not to be written off as he had a decent reappearance run at Nottingham recently where he found only Trueshan too good.

Quickthorn took a victory at Royal Ascot last year in the Duke Of Edinburgh and was so close to picking up the Ebor as well.

A solid return at Nottingham three weeks ago should put him in this.

TASKHKHAN is not to be taken lightly either although he is coming in fresh at Ascot on Wednesday.

There was a score ahead of Trushan in the course and distance Long Distance Cup in November and can compete if at the same kind of level.


Ones to watch: Wordsworth 3/1, Enemy 9/2

VALIANT PRINCE looks like being a strong contender as he is moved up in grade for Trials Day.

He has been in cracking form so far this season, winning back to back handicaps at Meydan on this same 1m trip. Valiant Prince is on the up.

SIR BUSKER put in a credible run after a slow start at Meydan a month ago. He took fourth.

This action on Wednesday is an ease in grade for him, so Sir Busker should find the going a little more to his liking.

INTELLOGENT was only just touched off at Newmarket two weeks ago on what was his first run in the UK.

It was also the first run for a new year and showed that the ability is still there.

It will be interesting to see what he puts together in midweek.


Ones to watch: Sir Busker 5/2, Intellogent 12/1

GO BEARS GO looks to be the one to beat in this one as he was such a good juvenile who could easily have had Group 1 wins under his belt already.

He went close in both the Phoenix and the Middle Park and rattled the crossbar in the Norfolk here at Ascot too.

WINGS OF WAR ended last season with a victory under his belt, getting the score in the Mill Reef at Newbury.

Wings of War showed some brilliant attitude to fight that out.

There’s no reason why he shouldn’t be in this one at all, although he concedes weight to Go Bears Go.

HIERARCHY is another that warrants respect in this contest too after putting in some solid Group efforts at the end of the previous campaign.

That was a couple of novice successes for him last August and there’s plenty for Hierarchy to build on.

Tip: GO BEARS GO 11/8

Ones to watch: Hierarchy 5/1, Wings Of War 7/2

MULZIM claimed a victory on his latest effort, which was his season opener at Southwell.

That took his seventh victory at the venue.

There hasn’t been a success for Mulzim on the turf as of yet, but a positive run at York last season puts him on the shortlist.

DEVIL’S ANGEL gets on the shortlist after taking a credible fifth-place finish at Beverley a couple of weeks ago.

He stays at the same mark and there was some notable improvement in handicapping for him last summer.

So Devil’s Angel could be warming up towards something positive.

FULL AUTHORITY is down in both grade and trip for Wednesday’s run so there are possibilities there.

He was well-tried up at Class 2 last season and things didn’t work out for Full Authority.

But there have been positive signs in defeat for him this season with a new yard.


Ones to watch: Mulzim 11/2, Full Authority 5/1

15:50 Pontefract Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 1m

EILEAN DUBH claimed a win on his latest run, which was a small-field handicap at Newcastle.

That was at the 1m trip and he looked very strong in it.

Eilean Dubh comes up with only 2lb for that effort and should be primed for a follow-up.

TANGLED is well worth a look as he makes his return to action after a break of six months.

He is only 1lb above his last winning mark.

Tangled also appears for a new yard for the first time and can be competitive if he’s primed to go.

VALORANT has a yard debut on Wednesday but will need to defy a break of 12 months to get in the frame.

Valorant is a lightly raced winner and she will need a big revival from a poor effort at the end of the previous campaign but piques interest nonetheless in a fairly thin field.

Tip: TANGLED 11/2

Ones to watch: Eilean Dubh 7/4, Valorant 10/1

Race Preview

SKITTLEBOMBZ is one of a handful with reasonable claims in this handicap fixture on Wednesday.

He returns to action after six months off.

Skittlebombz did win his final run of last season, taking a nursery score at Southwell.

He’s up 5lb for a new yard debut and there are clear claims there.

LEAP ABROAD has taken back to back runner-up finishes on his runs this season.

So he has really picked up where he left off the last term, in really good conscience form.

If he brings it on the turf, then Leap Abroad is a threat.

HOOKED ON YOU could have more in the tank after she opened the season on a good positive note.

There was a victory for her over course and distance two weeks ago.

This will be the handicap debut for her and Hooked On You warrants respect.


Ones to watch: Leap Abroad 4/1, Hooked On You 11/4
