Bonneval (1.55 Ascot)

Mr Tickle (3.55 Fontwell)

Top Secret (4.50 Ascot)

Ascot 1.55 - Bonneval

Some very strong races at Ascot and Luke favours the James Fanshawe trained Bonneval in the 1.55.

Bonneval has more than a thin chance for the "skeleton man" Fanshawe, having won twice on the spin on the all-weather at Newcastle and finishing second three starts back at Friday's track Ascot.

Tom Marquand gets the leg up on the four year-old by Siyouni.

Here's a snippet of why Luke is saying bonjour to Bonneval.

"We're going to side with Bonneval, who also was in pretty good form in the Racing League, winning on two separate occasions, before that was a good second in an apprentice handicap here at Ascot.

I think that is pretty solid form, the winner finishing second and winning subsequently as well. So everything is working out for Bonneval, I expect him to be one of the more fancied runners in the field."

Fontwell 3.55 - Mr Tickle

Luke is hoping that Mr Tickle will raise a smile from punters in the 3.55 over fences at Fontwell.

Gary Moore's seven year-old is on a hat-trick, having won over course and distance last time out.

Niall Houlihan gets the ride, claiming three pounds.

Here's why Luke has gone all Mr Men with Mr Tickle.

"I do think there is more to come from Mr Tickle, if he can jump the first two or three fences with the same sort of rhythm that he jumped last time around, I do think he could be pretty tough to catch and I don't think the other pacemakers could go with him.

Sandy Boy is likely to be the main danger, he's got some good form at Worcester the last twice, managed to win there a couple of starts ago. Maybe one or two mistakes though last time around when finishing back in fourth and if Mr Tickle get's in to, as I say, that rhythm on the front end that could bring out a few more mistakes in Sandy Boy."

Ascot 4.50 Top Secret

There's no secret why Luke has his eye on this Muir and Grassick four year-old at Ascot.

Not out of the top two in any of his his last four rides, the Anjaal gelding produced a course victory last time out under Nicola Currie who retains the ride.

Here's a brief rundown of why Top Secret could be an open winner.

"Last time around made all in a brilliant ride from Nicola Currie, she quite rightly retains the ride this afternoon. Went to the front when there was no pace in the race whatsoever, that's not really how Top Secret likes to do his running but he still managed to guts it out.

He was an eye-catcher at Newbury on the wrong side the time before that, that was when finishing one place in front of Walhaan. I think he'll confirm that form as well, and a race that has got a bit more pace in than last time around, the likes of Able Kane, a recent Doncaster winner, he should go to the fore and hopefully Top Secret can pick them off late in the day."
