3.00 Ascot

The race of the day at Ascot is without doubt the juvenile handicap hurdle, where several Fred Winter underachievers come back to do battle too. However, it’s the Dermot Weld runner Grappa Nonino who sticks out like a sore thumb. The son of Teofilo was quite average on the Flat but he stayed on well in the closing stages to win a maiden hurdle at Navan on his third start over obstacles in March.

The second that day, Media Naranja, has since bolted up at Limerick to give the form a nice boost and an opening mark of 115 could serious underestimate Grappa Nonino’s ability. It is not too often that an Irish raider gets allotted what looks like a very lenient rating in handicap company in Britain but he has got a good chance here. Weld has only had one national hunt runner in Britain in the last five years and he always commands respect wherever he goes. Sean Bowen is a top jockey booking to boot and it would be no surprise to see this boy win with a bit to spare, that’s for sure.
