Ascot: TIS MARVELLOUS | 4:10pm Rotary Club Of Ascot Handicap | Dom’s Pick
King George weekend at Ascot begins with a cracking Friday afternoon card and we’ve identified our best bet of the day ahead of the Berkshire action.
With a fine effort over course-and-distance last time out, Tis Marvellous holds a great record at this track and can add another success here.
He’s only been raised 1lb for that pipe opener, his first run for three months, and is far closer in the weights now with hat-trick hunting Significantly, who won here at Royal Ascot and earlier this month.
Clive Cox’s local yard is in flying form at 20% and his charge is 5lb lower than on his last winning mark, despite being a year older.
His King’s Stand fourth last season looks the best form on offer and if he can replicate that effort here, he is sure to go close.
