Ross Brierley's first two picks come at Ascot. In the 2:25 Class 3 action, Ross is going with the Ralph Beckett runner Future Investment. In the 4:10 FIllies Handicap, lightly raced Achelois for the in form Andrew Balding looks good. Jockey David Probert rode this one to glory at Newbury when last on board, and there should be a big improvement in the ground as well. And finally, up at Hamilton in the 7:50, Ayr Empress is the one. She broke her duck here in June, and despite not winning ran really well at Beverley last time. Hamliton breeds course specialists, and Ayr Empress is on the path to becoming another one.
