Betting Tip: @ Mekong @ 3/1 with betfair

There’s Listed action at Ascot this afternoon with eight set to go to post for the Noel Murless Stakes over and extended 1m6f, with Sir Michael Stoute’s MEKONG getting the pick.

A decent juvenile over a mile last season, he has thrived since tackling middle distances and was winning his third race of this term (two at this trip) at Haydock last month. That was a handicap but he won it in the manner of a horse who would be able to hold his own at a higher level, pulling seven lengths clear of the second Natural History, who is a smart performer himself. Granted the heavy ground may accentuated the winning margin and the selection has now won twice in such conditions. However, he has looked just as happy on a faster surface, including when a close up fourth in the ultra competitive Melrose Handicap (won by the re-opposing Ghostwatch, who has to be the main danger), so today’s good ground is no concern. With Ryan Moore renewing the partnership, he’s going to take plenty of beating.
