Ascot has won six races. He started off last season very well after a wind op, winning impressively from Oscar Ceremony. He is a Newcastle specialist and this was his fourth win on the course. He bumped into a horse on better terms next time coming second to maintain his good track record and then uncharacteristically sadly fell on his next outing. Now an 11-year-old, if he follows on like our other stalwarts Aristo du Plessis, Sleep in First, Civil Unrest, Lord Wishes etc. there should be some more fun to be had this season with his optimum conditions and sensible handicapping.
Kapgarde has proven to be a top class NH sire and his leading lights include King George winner Clan des Obeaux and Grade 1 winner A Plus Tard, Dolos etc.
His Dam Quid De Neuville was placed Flat/Hurdles and Chase and is half-sister to Lili Rochelaise out of a 2m 4f winner.
