Good morning/afternoon folks!
Glad to finally post some selections up for the start of a memerable week in the racing calander.
With the famous Ascot racecourse due to showcase some of the finest thoroughbreds the equine world has to offer, I’m goin to dedicate this week to none other than “The Queen”
Who celebrated her 90th birthday this year, It seems only right to add some royal colour to the page with this picture of her majesty and last year’s record equalling jockey Ryan Moore.
Moving on to today’s action and I’ve picked out 4 selections that should give you a good run for your money.
NAP – MECCAS ANGEL 3:40 ASCOT
Win @Take best price available
The rain has come!!
She will get her ground!!
With conditions to suit, and a recent run to blow away the cobwebs, albeit placed 2nd behind the improving Profitable
I think everything looks in order for another big run, the rain will scare plenty away so non runners expected.
Hopefully the real Mecca’s Angel turns up because surely she’s the best horse in the race on her ground…
I’ll be hoping so.
2:30 ASCOT – ERVEDYA
Im chancing this French raider to do exactly that, raid Ascot and take home the money here.
Leading 3yo filly at this trip last year with good turn of foot; made encouraging return.
Belardo is worthy of a big mention and could also win but I think the race could be more or less over by the time of challenging, well I hope so.
I wouldn’t rule out either on this forecast softer ground.
A reverse forecast might be a nice side bet.
4:20 ASCOT – EMOTIONLESS
THE GURKA – SAVER/ RFC
Like trainer Charlie Appleby, I’m not giving up hope on emotionless just yet!
I’m confident we ain’t seen the best of this lightly raced group 2 3yo colt out of Shamardal.
The ground could be key and could be the making of him.
I would say; THE GURKA is kind of fancied to go well too so EW would be best at 12/1 in a fascinating contest.
A SAVER on The Gurka could prove wise if market is solid.
5:00 ASCOT – SILVER CONCORDE
Antepost@7/1 generally 6/1
The Irish trained horses tend to go well in this type staying event, hench the reason I fancy the in form Dermot Weld runner Silver Concorde, 3/5 on the flat
And 5/10 if you include NHF races.
Everything points to a decent run but while there’s a couple Mullins runners and a Gosden inmate in the field you can’t go too mad.
Bet cautious but it definitely looks to hold a strong chance.
SMALL FUN BETS
CAPABLE OF HITTING THE FRAME
Pearl Secret @12/1
Misty Trader @6/1
Pearl Secret/ Emotionless/Misty Trader
LONG SHOT EW Double
Good luck with any advice taken.
