Pablo’s Poem (Ascot Race 7 No. 3):
This five-year-old Lope De Vega gelding is the early favourite in this No Metro Wins Last Year race over 1200m. Last campaign he faded for 7 lengths 14th over 1400m at Ascot on 24 October, then was spelled. He resumed for 3.09 lengths 12th over 1000m at Ascot on 13 February, where he was held-up at times. He seems too short in the market based on recent performances and I’m happy to risk him.
