3.05 Ascot – Scope – WON 13/8 (Adv 5/2)

Any rain won’t be an issue, as Scope beat the St Leger runner up Mojo Star on soft ground as a juvenile last season and his form this season is a step above that of his opponents. Third in the Lingfield Derby Trial, he then ran a very good race in the Great Voltigeur behind Yibir, where he only faded from the action at the front of the field late on. Whilst his run when 6th in the St Leger was also a really strong effort, in the context of the standard of this race. He drops down significantly in grade, whilst his opponents are stepping up from handicap company.
