Soie D’leau an Ascot ace

Soie D’leau has posted some solid efforts this season and looks worth a wager at 9/1 in the 4.25 at Ascot today.

Kristin Stubbs trained gelding scored three times last season with his last success coming at Doncaster off a rating of 96 when winning a 21-runner handicap by a short-head.

Soie D’leau got put up to 99 for that victory and ran well of it on seasonal reappearance when fourth at Newbury.

The five-year-old has since run well to finish a 2 1/2 length fifth of 18 in a competitive congtest at York and there was lots to like about his latest effort when fading late on to finish a 1 1/4 length fourth of 14 to Shamson at Newmarket.

He now meets the winner on 3lb better terms and his current mark of 92 is 4lb lower than when last victorious.

It makes him weighted to run a big race on the pick of his form.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 2pts each-way Soie D’leau (9/1 generally available – use BOG firms)
