4.50 Ascot – Makram (e/w) – WON 7/1

Lightly raced and still very much full of as yet untapped potential, Makram is sure to benefit from this step up in trip and more conventional track having raced around tight bends on the all-weather thus far. He showed plenty of promise on his debut when a strong finishing 2nd and then again when finishing strongly won on his 2nd start. Disappointing last time, he’d previously beaten the 3rd placed horse, so that clearly wasn’t his form. Given a break, reverting to turf and stepping up in trip he’s a very interesting contender off a mark of 76 which could well prove to be a lenient one.
