Hierarchy (2.05 Kempton)

Celsius (5.30 Ascot)

Loves Me Likearock (6.30 Wolverhampton)

2.05 Kempton - Hierarchy

It's a very busy Saturday as we go into the Autumn campaign, with 56 races to get stuck into, and plenty of them look competitive. Not too many small fields, which have been the blight of racing recently.

Hopefully we'll get a couple of decent prices in the frame at the very least, starting off at Kempton in the 2.05 on to the all weather for the Sirenia Stakes Group Three over six furlongs for two year olds, and an intriguing contest.

Nymphadora, Wings Of War and Fearless Angel all have good turf form and have been proven in decent races. But there's a lot to like about Hierarchy's two victories for Hugo Palmer and Oisin Murphy back in the saddle.

A winner on debut at Wolverhampton, this horse carried a penalty to victory in a very strong time at Salisbury last time out. It was a dominant performance and he looks well up to this grade. So should get a nice toe into it from box two, Hierarchy looks up to defying a rising class here at Kempton.

5.30 Ascot - Celsius

Over at Ascot in the 5.30, their finale on Saturday afternoon. A smallish field in comparison to recent years, but that's probably because a few of them are running scared of the likely favourite, Mine's A Double, who brought up the double last time out for Clive Cox, Ryan Moore in the saddle into a handicap for the first time here.

But his run style is to blast off in front, which is often a bit of a death now here at Ascot. That usually sets it up for the closers, and there should be a couple of others who set the pace as well.

So you want something that's going to come from the back, and at a big price, it might well be worth chancing each-way on Celsius for Tom Clover and Jack Mitchell. This horse was second in this race last season off a mark of 90, and has come here this season for another crack off a mark of 81.

He's a proper deep closer, in fact he often makes it quite difficult for himself by coming out of the stalls sluggishly. But he's got himself very well handicapped and he could well bounce back to his best form. He went on a winning run in 2019 and also managed to notch a victory last season as well, and he's finally down below his last winning mark.

His draw in eight looks good as well, it often pays to come down this nearside at Ascot, so Celsius could be vastly underrated in the market for Tom Clover and Jack Mitchell.

6.30 Wolverhampton - Loves Me Likearock

Finally, an hour later in Wolverhampton, an open-looking novice event here over five furlongs, plenty of them in with chances.

But a strongly run five should suit Loves Me Likearock, who was a winner last time out for Charlie Hills, Callum Shepherd in the saddle and this horse is jumping back to five furlongs after scoring over six.

But the dam was a talented sprinter over the minimum trip, and I don't think a drop back is necessarily a negative, especially as this should be run at a good gallop.

Perfect draw in box eight as well, at Lingfield last time out she switched off and challenged wide down the centre of the track to score in pretty impressive fashion, and hopefully, if there's a good clip-on, and Callum Shepherd get's a decent sight at coming home down that home straight, that eight box should be perfect.

She finished really, really well last time out in a strong time for the grade and Loves Me Likearock gets the nod to follow up carrying a penalty.
