Angelic Miss to strike

The feature race on the Ascot card is the 1200m Marjorie Charleson Classic for fillies and mares. This sprint contest has attracted a field of six with How's The Serenity, the winner on two of her three starts this time around, expected to start as favourite.

The daughter of Magnus performed well when delivering a one-and-a-half-length victory in the 1100m Miss Andretti at this venue in January.

However, just two weeks after that victory, the five-year-old finished last of eight in the Scenic Blast and she has not raced since.

Angelic Miss was the winner of the aforementioned Scenic Blast and she is preferred here despite carrying top weight.

Trained by Simon Miller, the selection followed that effort up with a good fourth when beaten by just over two lengths in a track and trip contest in February.

Freshened up since that latest fourth, Patrick Carbery is a positive jockey booking here, while barrier six shouldn't inconvenience in a small field. 

Six of the picks seven previous victories have come at this venue and she looks up to adding to that in this event.

Warrior to upset Warby

The Group 3-placed Warby looks likely to start favourite for the fourth race at Canberra. The race concerned is a 1400m Class 2 handicap contest with a good 4 track expected.

Warby's Group 3 placing came on debut over 1200m at this venue back in March last year. However, it took another five starts for the gelding to break his maiden, with that success coming when delivering a one-and-a-half-length victory over 1300m at Hawkesbury.

Freshened since that triumph, he makes a return to this venue, with Galactic Warrior taken to upset the favourite.

The five-year-old is lightly-raced for one his age, having made just the five starts since winning on debut in a 1200m maiden here on 20th December. The son of Cluster went close to doubling his career tally when runner-up in a Class 1 event over 1300m at this venue on his penultimate start.

Trained by Wayne Hudd, the gelding looks ready to return to the winners' enclosure with Danny Beasley up for the first time.

Fire to score at Launceston

The seventh race at Launceston is an interesting Benchmark 66 contest. A good 4 track is expected for the 1400m contest with Alpine Affair likely to prove popular following a win at Hobart.

The gelding was putting a below-par effort in a 1420m Benchmark 68 contest here behind him when scoring under his jockey here Lizzie Annells.

However, preference on this occasion is for Summer Fire, with all four of her previous victories having come at this venue. 

The selection has placed third in small field contests on each of her last two starts, including when beaten just over two lengths in a Benchmark 76 contest over this course and distance. 

That latest effort came on a soft 6 track, with the return to a sound surface a positive, as she finished two lengths third in a similar event on her penultimate start.

Trained by Adam Trinder, the filly gets a drop in grade for this contest and looks capable of delivering a victory under promising claimer Erica Byrne Burke.
