Well what a treat of sport we have with the world cup and Royal Ascot in the same week and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in to today’s Ascot card. I did have small bet on England yesterday taking 9/1 for a Kane headed goal. So the injury time winner was a double celebration.
Right let’s get straight into it here.
Ascot 2-30 Group 1 (Class 1) 8f – LIGHTENING SPEAR at 10/1 would probably be a solid each way selection and is a better price than 7/2 against Rhododendron who beat him by a short head. SO BELOVED 100/1 looks a huge price and comes out well on our ratings despite having plenty to find at the weights.
Ascot 3-05 Group 2 (Class 1) 6f – INDIGO BALANCE at 14/1 is the horse for us here I was taken with the run at the Curragh – Slowly away stayed on well to win going away. A really nice-looking horse and full brother to a group 2 winner. I would play each way to spread the risk.
Ascot 3-40 Group 1 (Class 1) 5f – BATTASH at 5/2 is the one for me here. Totally demolished a group 1 field in Chantilly last year and his win at Haydock has been franked. Hopefully Lady Aurillia will run out of juice setting it up nicely for the selection.
