It’s a case of small fields at Ascot. The star act is of course the return of Constitution Hill in the Grade 2 Coral Hurdle (2.40). The likes of L’Homme Presse and Edwardstone also make their seasonal returns on the card. The meeting seems likely to steal the headlines away from Haydock where it’s Betfair Chase Day. That would be a shame because we have Gold Cup winner A Plus Tard making his seasonal return in the Betfair Chase (3:00). Haydock’s seven race card is also superior to Ascot’s from a betting perspective.
