Fergie’s Saturday double

Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Saturday; Frankuus in the Ascot 14:30 and Great Order 16:00 Newmarket. Compare odds and bet.

The final day of Royal Ascot gets underway with the Chesham Stakes, for which Aidan O’Brien’s maiden Churchill heads the market, having been well supported since the declarations were announced on Thursday morning.

The Galileo colt shaped with plenty of promise on debut, but he has more on his plate here facing the pair of winning Frankel colts.  Firstly Cunco got off the mark at Newbury, when quickening up to beat Isomer who had moved to the front stylishly.

That pair warrant respect (Isomer looks potentially over-priced here), but there was a lot to like about the winning debut of Frankuus (2:30) at Haydock just nine days ago and he looked the type to improve considerably for that initial experience.

Mark Johnston’s grey was fairly green beforehand and during the race, yet was well on top at the line, winning over today’s 7f trip.  The ground will be softer this afternoon, but being out of a Linamix mare it shouldn’t pose any problems.  Backing up quickly isn’t often an issue when it comes to this stable and, at the prices (13/2 at the time of writing), he is worth supporting each-way.

Over at Newmarket Great Order (4:00) is fancied to win division two of the EBF stallions’ maiden, for Saeed Bin Suroor and Godolphin.

An eye-catcher on his sole start at two, the Distorted Humor colt came from a long way back to take fourth in a maiden on the Rowley Mile and that piece of form sets the standard here.  He looks to have filly Wilamina to beat, with Martyn Meade’s filly shaping well on debut at Goodwood recently, running on strongly to finish second.

Saturday’s selections:
2:30 Royal Ascot               Frankuus 8/1 PaddyPower
4:00 Newmarket                 Great Order 1/1 StanJames
