Shamson weighted to strike at Ascot

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Shamson makes plemty of appeal at 8/1 in the 4.45 at Ascot today.

Stuart Williams’ six-year-old won this race 12 months ago when coming with his customary late run to get up on the line and score by a short-head off a mark of 92.

He took advantage of a drop in the weighst to get back on the scoreseeht at Newmarket back in July when cosily beating Top Boy by 1/2 a length in a 14-runner affair off 87.

Shamson has failed to trouble the judge in four subsequent starts, but didn’t run too baldy on his penultimate outing when fourth at Sandown off 89.

He is now back on his last winning mark (87) and 5lb lower than when landing last year’s renewal.

It gives him a big shout from a handicapping perspective in a race which should be run to suit.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Shamson (8/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
