After tipping up impressive Weatherbys Super Sprint winner Gubbass last week, Steve Chambers is back for another edition of The Weekend Wager, and he targets Ascot and York for his best bets on a sparkling day spearheaded by the King George...

13:15 Ascot - Pat Eddery Stakes

It's a sparkling start to King George day at Ascot with the Listed Pat Eddery Stakes attracting some smart juveniles at 13:15 and the George Boughey-trained Cachet is currently heading the betting and looks an exciting youngster. Fifth in the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot the daughter of Aclaim then finished third in Listed company at Newmarket, so is looking to continue on an upward curve here.

However, she could face a lively adversary in the shape of Ralph Beckett's ANGEL BLEU, who failed to fire at Royal Ascot on his last outing, but had previously won two races impressively. Wins at Salisbury and Pontefract in April and May meant he was given the tough task of lining in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes on the opening day of the Royal meeting. Prominent through the early part of the race, the Dark Angel colt failed to pick up and was unable to get any closer than 13th.

The step up to seven furlongs this weekend could bring on significant improvement, as he was going away in that Pontefract win over six furlongs, so he should have no issues with the extra furlong, and seven furlongs could be the making of him and he is the selection.

14:25 Ascot - Porsche Handicap

John & Thady Gosden trained Tsar to victory in the Porsche Handicap last season, and the star trainer will attempt to retain the crown on Saturday afternoon and saddles the classy GURU in the 14:25 contest. An impressive winner on debut at Newbury last season, where he beat Maximal, the son of Kingman has failed to get his head in front again,  but shaped like he was recapturing his form when second at Ascot two weeks ago.

Just touched off by a neck in that event, he has been upped a meagre 2lbs by the handicapper for that run, so off a mark of 90 he looks to have a great chance of going one better and notching up a second career victory. However, he will have some notable rivals to face in a cracking little contest at the Berkshire venue.

Roger Varian's Fantastic Fox failed to land a blow at Royal Ascot, but had previously won eye-catchingly at Hamilton, so he must be respected, while Isla Kai, who beat Guru in that aforementioned Ascot clash, will be looking to frank the form, but with Gosden's charge better off at the weights then Guru should be able to get on top this time around.

14:40 York - Sky Bet Dash Handicap

A bumper field line up for the Sky Bet Dash Handicap at York at 14:40 with the likes of Mondammej, Golden Apollo and Music Society all looking major players, but there could be a former winner that strikes again on the Knavesmire on Saturday afternoon. 

David O'Meara's MUSCIKA edged out the aforementioned Golden Apollo in this race 12 months ago, and while O'Meara's charge has struggled to emulate that fine display in recent times a return to York could see him recapture his best form, and at double-figured odds looks a cracking bet. The seven-year-old failed to land a blow on his last start when down the field on the all-weather at Lingfield, but a return to turf should bring him back to form.

His last two victories came at York, so it's a real positive to see him lining up here, and only 1lb higher than last year's winning mark, he has to be given the utmost respect, and with some double-figured odds available, at the time of writing, he looks the bet of a competitive race.

15:00 Ascot - Moet & Chandon International Stakes

Richard Hannon's Mothakayyel was last seen bounding to victory in the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket, and he will look to emulate that success when he looks to defy top weight in the Moet & Chandon International Stakes at Ascot at 15:00. However, with a penalty to carry, he will find it very tough to land another big handicap success, and he could be worth taking on.

In such a competitive betting heat, there's a host of contenders that could land a significant blow, but a runner at huge odds that could outrun his odds is the Ralph Beckett-trained TOMFRE. Hugely progressive at the back end of last season, the son of Cable Bay racked up a trio of wins in soft going, and with rain expected to hit Ascot in the lead up to the race then Beckett's charge could play a notable role.

Available at 33/1, at the time of writing, Tomfre ran a decent race at York in May off a mark of 105 before he put up a creditable effort on quicker ground in the Buckingham Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot. Lining up off the same mark of 105 on Saturday afternoon, Tomfre will need significant rain to play a role here, but if the wet stuff does hit the track then he could come into calculations, and is worth a speculative each-way bet for a cracking renewal.
