Thursday at Royal Ascot is certain to be equally as impressive as the first two days of the meeting, with the Group One Gold Cup the feature.
This year’s renewal of the race is as competitive as it gets, with Sir Michael Stoute’s Estimate the leading contender to battle to success over the gruelling 2m4f. She won well at Ascot in May and should take the step up in his stride. William Hill are offering an appealing 9/2 for him.
Rite Of Passage and Simenon both warrant respect and symbolise decent value, however last year’s winner Colour Vision has struggled lately. Dermot Weld’s 9-year-old won this back in 2010 and added another win to his name last timeout at Ascot in only his second run since. He is currently 6/1 with Paddy Power whilst Altano is good each-way value at 16/1.
A P O’Brien will be hoping that Coach House can give him his first win in the Norfolk Stakes since 2001. He has looked very impressive when winning his last two starts and looks to be shaping into a very useful sprinter.
BetVictor are offering the best price of 11/4 for him, however Richard Hannon will also saddle two smart sprinters in Coulsty and Legend Rising. They will be ridden by the top two jockeys of this campaign, Hughes and Moore, which adds to their chances of a victory.
No Way Never is another major threat, although any sign of rain could completely ruin the US challengers hopes.
Alive Alive Oh is the current market leader for the Ribblesdale Stakes over 1m4f, following her phenomenal 6 length romp of Magical Dream at Navan. Paddy Power are the best place to bet on him as they offer 11/4 at the moment.
The Lark finished third in the Oaks which could be good enough to win this, indicating that Bet365’s 4/1 on her is generous.
It will not prove easy for any of these though, as 5/1 shot (BetVictor) Winsili is another who should run well after a good win on her reappearance.
Elik and Waila also both won impressively last time and look useful, representing decent each-way value for those wishing to bet on the place chance.
The Tercentenary Stakes is likely to be one of the most competitive races of the day, with a large number of these set to run well. Indian Chief could not follow up his Leopardstown win in a York Group Two last time, but his third there bodes well for a positive run in this Group Three contest.
Another major threat is John Gosden’s Remote, who has won both of his previous two races, the most recent in superb style. He is also 4/1 best price with Paddy Power.
Chopin and Van Der Neer should be thereabouts, although Kitten On The Run and Elkaayed look to have the best chance of the outsiders.
The two Class Two races are both equally as competitive, which should make for some fantastic horse racing. Cape Peron is improving well and he should be well suited in the Britannia Stakes, whilst Maputo and Homage are another two eye-catching contenders in this wide open contest.
The final race of the day is the hugely competitive King George V Stakes. Mark Johnston and Joe Fanning will be keen to produce a similar display as last year when Fennell Bay won this race, however Royal Skies will not find this at all easy.
Bold Sniper and Eshtiaal are another two who should give good accounts, whilst Red Runaway and Spillway are likely to be decent value bets.
