Guard Of Honour

Betting Tip: @ 10/1 with bet365

The 2m2f handicap on the card has an open look to it and a chance is taken on GUARD OF HONOUR at a tasty price. He was a disappointing favourite when last seen out on the all-weather at Dundalk in January and fared little better on his previous start at Newcastle in December, but he seems best in big-field turf handicaps and ran a huge race to finish fourth in the Irish Cesarewitch last October, a race he had finished runner-up in 12 months earlier.

His trainer George Baker described him as an ‘exciting stayer’ in a recent Stable Tour and earmarked the Ascot Stakes as his big target. That race should suit him, but he could do with going up a few pounds to be sure of getting in and a win today would be just the job.
