Punters can get their teeth into a couple of competitive Group 3 contests at Ascot this afternoon, starting with the Group 3 Sagaro Stakes over 2m.

The race sees the return to action of Brian Meehan’s Raheen House and he’s quite rightly vying for favouritism considering he finished last season in good form, winning a Listed contest over 1m6f here in October before signing off with a second in the Group 3 Horris Hill over 1m4f. But he’s now stepping up to 2m for the first time and while his trainer thinks he will improve for it, we’re having to take his stamina on trust and he may well need his first run back besides.

With a stamina doubt also hanging over Mark Johnston’s Time For Study and Doncaster Cup winner Desert Skyline having to shoulder a penalty, the one to be on is proven stayer TORCEDOR. Jessica Harrington’s charge never stopped improving last season, winning twice and then twice finishing second behind Order Of St George, getting as close as half a length in the Long Distance Cup run over track and trip in October. He failed to give his true running in last month’s Dubai World Cup at Meydan, finishing stone last, but we can put a line through that as he didn’t travel well according to his trainer, who also reports him in “back sparking now” ahead of his return to the scene of his career-best effort.
