The Belgravia for the 3yos highlights the day at Ascot as the Summer Carnival is starting to get moving.
It is an interesting race with a few hopes but one pf the fillies is a fancy and that is Augment.
This Simon Miller trained daughter of Exceed And Excel began her career with a win then a close third in a good Gimcrack behind the Karrakatta quinella.
A third when resuming was followed by a nice victory over this course and distance so she seems right at home.
For Patrick Carbery she should get a lovely run in transit just behind the speed and prove tough to hold off.
To the last where there is some value in the form of Mack Mack. While he doesn't win with great regularity, once he's fit and at the right trip he's a hope.
Last time in it took him a couple of runs to be up and active but once there, he put a string of good performances together.
That included a win at the Ascot mile and two seconds for good measure. William Pike was aboard that day and Mack Mack had two apprentices ride this prep until now when the champion rides again.
Expecting he can roll onto the speed again and run a good race.
BEST FROM THE WEST
