As suggested by Trotter I' going to put my selections for the day on here. I'm using two sources Racing Post as Trotter's suggestion and Horse Race Ratings as the other. If I decide to change sources I'll say but thought it would be best to be clear.
I'm just starting so please be gentle! 🙂

1.15 Ascot - 1pt e/w Sir Busker @ 12/1 Bet365
Progressive type who won last time out at Kempton - although he's done most of his racing over shorter trips, has seen the mile out strongly and the key to this horse is having a strong pace to chase. Ought to get that today and still seems to be improving so this race looks ideal for him.
1.50 Ascot - 1pt e/w Kenzai Warrior @ 11/1 Bet365
Again I'm happy to take form in the book over potential and I think this one has a decent chance today. Form of his maiden win over Max Vega reads well, won a 7f race despite being short of room and it being shorter than his ideal trip on his second start and then you can put a line through his run in the Guineas. Fly leapt and stumbled at the start but did make some headway into midfield - well beaten ultimately but he wouldn't have wanted to be that far back at all as he doesn't do anything that quickly so I think the step up in trip today can suit and potentially a more positive ride too with a better start.
2.25 Ascot - 2pts win Bright Melody @ 11/2 Bet365
Plenty of potential having had just 2 starts so far - was slowly away and green on debut but was strong at the finish and well on top to get off to a winning start. The 3rd that day is now rated 88 so I don't think 98 is restrictive for this one, especially up in trip from its pleasing reappearance run when a staying-on 3rd at Kempton over 1m2f, when Pyledriver was 2nd. More to come and conditions should be absolutely fine.
3.00 Ascot - 2pts win Japan 11/8 Bet365
Tough to beat on last year's evidence. Addeybb would pose more of a threat on softer ground I think so unless there's a monster improver here, can't see Japan getting beat really.
3.35 Ascot - 1pt e/w Indeed 22/1 Bet365
Obviously a bit of a minefield here but Indeed is an interesting runner who I think will relish conditions here - a true test over a mile will be spot on and I think he can hold a handy sit and keep rolling, so long as he's on the right part of the track. Trainer form is a bit of a concern with only 3 runners since the restart and all have been well beaten but this one looks off a competitive, if not easy mark and some good form in the book in group and listed races.
4.10 Ascot - 1pt win Mighty Gurkha 7/1 Bet365
Tricky race given the lack of evidence on show but despite it being a poor race he won at Lingfield, it's hard not to be taken by the performance of Mighty Gurkha. Showed an excellent turn of foot to quickly but 6 or 7 lengths between him and his field over 6f there, plenty of pace for 5f and getting further is no bad thing in a race like this. Exciting prospect and if he was with a more fashionable trainer would be considerably shorter.
4.40 Ascot - 3pts win Ranch Hand 4/1 Bet365
I think this one has a monster chance today. Flopped when sent off favourite for the Cesarewitch last season but was keen and sometimes just because you stay 1m6f, it doesn't mean you get 2m2f or he could have just had a bad day at the office. However, look at his form before hand and he looks to have a huge chance today with conditions to suit. His run in Group company makes this mark look fair and he won a handicap by 2l two starts back from a horse who has since gone up 18lbs in the handicap - Ranch Hand is just 5lbs higher today and I think is well in today.

Cross out anything more than 2 years older than youngest horse, cross out horses who haven't won over the trip, cross out any horse badly drawn, pick two from remaining based on draw, trainer form or CD winners
Anything in double figures is an EW

Hard to see how a fit pinatubo can lose this ...looks to hold all the cards .....arguably no value around 10/11 ....the ew bet looks to be kameko around 8/1 ....shoukd get conditions to suit and would be disappointing if he didn't place I think....of the rest royal dornach around 40/1 is vastly overpriced ....could sneak a place ....overall balding has said kameko is one of the best horses hes had for a while and looked fit in his workout last week ..a place would show aprofit so ...I'll go ew on that and take the monster fav on ....
Kameko 10pts ew 8/1
