Ascending – 2.00 Leicester (14/1 – Various)

Hailing from Clive Cox’s yard, Ascending could strike on his rules debut in a 6f maiden stakes at Leicester.

Bought for 75,000gns as a yearling, the two-year-old holds a lot of interest in terms of pedigree.

The colt is a half-brother to four winners, including prolific sprinter Midnight Malibu and handicapper Mr Pocket who claimed success as a 2yo.

His dam (Midnight Martini) claimed several successes and placed in Grouped company during an impressive two-year-old season under Tim Easterby.

If Ascending can follow the family traits, then 14/1 is a very appealing price in this level of competition.
