1.15 Ascot

North View is trained by Peter Chapple-Hyam and is set to run in the very valuable maiden that opens the card. The race is worth a whopping £50,000 and is sure to be hotly contested for that reason. Chapple-Hyam’s charge is hoping to make it third time lucky as he’s been withdrawn from two previous engagements and got loose beforehand on one of those.

The trainer himself has been in decent form in the last fortnight. He has had two winners from just six runners in the last two weeks which gives him a healthy strike-rate of 33 per cent. This is perhaps a factor behind the strength of North View’s market support.

A son of Expert Eye, his dam is an unraced half-sister to a Group 1 winner. It has to be noted that his three siblings have all failed to win as of yet but he’s out of a promising sire and could be the first to get his head in front.
