Royal Ascot Day 1

Welcome to Royal Ascot Day 1. A great meeting but not one I am as passionate about as the big jumps meetings.

I will share my bets for interest and if you follow it is at your own risk and peril. I only use info from our own FTS Racing set up or any info I receive from my racing contacts.

I am happy to take a punt on the week,  of course hoping to turn a profit but it is very competitive racing so I am hopeful rather that guaranteeing anything. All bets on Betfair

 

2.30 Romanised each way I have heard good word for. Olmedo also a mention and of the market leaders Barney Roy I am told is worth a bet.

Romanised £30 Win @ 34, £30 Place @ 8.8 -£60

Barney Roy £30 Win @ 7.0 -£30

Olmedo £25 Win @ 22 -£25

-£115 Good Start:-)

3.05 Arizona the one to beat and I am told but also decent word for Royal Lytham and Guildsman. I can’t backing a 3.7 shot in the rain, if it wins so be it.

Guildsman £30 Win @ 7.4 -£30

Royal Lytham £30 Win @ 19.5, £30 Place @ 5.0 -£60

-£205

3.40 My contact thinks Battaash will get caught late on and likes two against it. Blue Point and Sergei Prokofiev. Again shortish prices not for me.

Sergei Prokofiev £40 Win @ 14.5, £40 Place @ 3.85 -£80

-£285

4:20 Too Darn Hot fancied to hose up quite easily. I am advised Phoenix of Spain is a Lay job and cannot win but I won’t be laying today. King of Comedy inly other word. Small bets for interest as no decent prices to get stuck into

Too Darn Hot £20 Win @ 3.35 -£20

King of Comedy £10 Win @ 7.2 -£10

-£315

5.00 My sort of punting race 3 at fair prices to get stuck into. Gunnery, Snow Falcon and Time to Study all had decent mentions.

Gunnery £40 Win @ 14.5, £40 Place @ 3.85 -£80

Snow Falcon £40 Win @ 15, £40 Place @ 4 -£80

Time to Study £30 Win @ 18, £30 Place @ 4.6 +74.76

-£400.24

5.35 Strong words for Elarqam and Addeybb in a competitive race and small word for Dolphin Vista at a big price.

£30 Win Elarqam £30 Win @ 5.8 -£30

£30 Win Addeybb £30 Win @ 8.4 +215.34

£25 Win Dolphin Vista, £25 Win @ 130, £25 Win @ 25 -£50

 

Total -£264.9 (Feels like got away with it a bit)

    Unfortunately King Of Comedy not the best play of Kirby
