Welcome to Royal Ascot Day 2. 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 Two that won well last time at York and Catterick respectively and both look to have more to come, favourite over from the states and trainer does well in race so obviously the one to beat
Illustrating £25 Win @ 12.5, £25 Place @ BSP -£50
Nymphadora – £25 Win @ 14, £25 Place @ BSP -£50
3.05 I like Kemari here will stay and looks again to be in the upgrade, won really well at Yarmouth and Frankies mount Stowell shoud be better today with the tongue tie on. Wordsworth obviously a favourite chance in a race the trainer dominates so an obvious danger.
Kemari – £35 Win 10.5 +£325
Stowell – £30 Win 13.5, £25 Place @ BSP +£57
Running – £216.25
3.40 – Good word for Lady Bowthorpe franked on Palace Pier form, Agincourt ran well and has to be backed at the price
Lady Bowthorpe £50 Win 4.4 -£50
Agincourt – £30 Win @ 22, £30 Place @ 5.5 -£60
4:20 As the Beatles said – All You Need is Love
Love £125 Win @ 2.12 +£137
5.00 Astro King is still well in here and has to be backed even in a cavalry charge. Magical Morning and Maydanny (expect to trade lower in running) who may well try from the front also worth backing.
Astro King £35 Win @ 7.6 £35 Place @ 2.6 +£19
Magical Morning £25 Win @ 19.5, £25 Place @ BSP -£50
Maydanny £25 Win @ 20, £20 Place @ BSP –£45
5.35 Golden Bell should go well and I will save on favourite Ruthin who will be right there
Golden Bell £30 Win 18.5, £30 Place @ 5.4 -£60
Ruthin £25 Win @ 4 -£25
6.10 Mostly with the tongue tie whihc will help and can go well, poor draw but Lights On will finish strong and is better than most of these, if can get in position early has to have a good chance.
Mostly £30 Win @ 13.5, £25 Place @ 3.15 -£55
Lights On £30 Win @ 9.6, £25 Place @ 2.8 -£55
