Sceptre Stakes Tips 2020
After going through the stats for this race very few can be discounted but a couple of likely types are CLOAK OF SPIRITS and ALTHIQA but I won't be making a final choice until I know the going conditions on raceday.
My final selection for this race will be sent out to VIP Members on the morning of the race.
