Glorious Empire 8/1 @ Ascot

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Saturday; Glorious Empire in the Ascot 14:40. Compare odds and bet.

Ed Walker’s Glorious Empire (2:40) is the horse to be with at Ascot on Saturday, in the mile three-year-old handicap.

The Holy Roman Emperor gelding is proving most progressive (left on the wide outside in the Jersey Stakes on his penultimate start) and travelled up powerfully when scoring at Newmarket last time.

Up another 7lbs this afternoon, he clearly has more on his plate in what looks a deeper race, but is on an upward curve and looks worthy of each-way support having opened up 8-1 with Bet Victor on Friday.

Of the dangers the hat-trick seeking Moohaarib is the one to fear most; he also moved stylishly when winning last time and he, too, looks capable of a bold show.

Saturday’s selection:
2:40 Ascot: Glorious Empire; 8/1 Betvictor
