5.00 Ascot – Big Baz (e/w) 3rd 9/1 – Saver Leader Writer WON 10/1

Is starting to look very well handicapped after what had looked to be a slightly disappointing season thus far, until last time where he showed real promise and what suggested an imminent return to form. A Listed winner twice in 2015 and rated a stone higher, he was highly tried last season over in Dubai at Group level. He’s run okay this season, with a fair effort behind Banksea at Newbury, where he’s now massively better off at the weights and from a bad draw ran really well at York last time. Held up off the pace, he came home with a rare rattle on the outside, finishing as well as anything. The ground will suit here, any further rain would be an added bonus and he holds very strong claims. We would suggest a saver on Leader Writer at around 10/1 who has only has a couple of runs in the UK, is open to a good deal of improvement and caught the eye last time behind Raising Sand.
