We have five runners in the Ascot Stakes Handicap over 2m 4f. We think Whiskey Sour (Christophe Soumillion) will stay this trip but the fast ground is a bit of a worry. Chelkar (Ryan Moore) is having his first run for us and is bred to see out the trip. If Ryan can switch him off early he should be involved at the business end. Lagostovegas (Andrea Atzeni) is in great form and will love this ground. However, we are not sure that she will see out this trip. Stratum (Robert Winston) will go on the ground and will really like this trip. He should go close. Meri Devie (Mickael Barzalona) is a proven performer over this trip over hurdles and we think she will handle this ground too.
