Royal Ascot 2017 Day 4 Tips

Sorry about missing yesterday everyone had a very busy day at the FC Halifax Town Golf Day. Here are the tips for a day in which short price favourites should get the job done. Back my tips here.
2:30 Albany Stakes

Alpha Centauri 11/4

Has been incredible over her two starts at Naas already the only slight concern you could possibly have is that she hasn’t run on ground this quick yet. But based on her first two runs should be a winner here today.

3:05 King Edward VII Stakes

Permian 13/2

A horse that I watched win the Dante at York in May beating yesterday’s winner BenBatl and the favourite in this race Crystal Ocean comfortably in the process. That was on quick ground as well so it may suit Permian today. Bad outing at Epsom last time but should be a contender if back to it’s best today.

3:40 Commenwealth Cup

Carravaggio 10/11

Aiden O’Brien and Ryan Moore team up again here on a horse that is unbeaten. Won the Coventry stakes here a year ago and won the Phoenix stakes at Curragh last year as well. Very talented horse and should win this one easily. Shouldn’t be any shocks in this race.

4:20 Coronation Stakes

Winter to win by and up to 3 lengths  evens

This race should be over before it even begins. Winter the 1,000 Guineas winner is a class above the rest of the field and to win by up to and including 3 lengths is good value. Over 7F the winning distance is rarely more than 3 lengths and winter should get the job done.

5:00 Queens Vase

Count Octave 9/1

Finished very strongly in the Chester Vase a few weeks ago coming right from the back of the field to finish a respectable 5th. The step up in trip here could suit it to a tee and it should at least get you an each way return.
5:35 Duke Of Edinburgh stakes

Appeared 13/2

Always hard to call a large field handicap but appeared seems like he has a good chance in this. With the better horses in this race Wadigor and Top Tug carrying more weight than they’re used to. With Wadigor winning by significantly less last time out and taking another step up in weight today. Appeared has a good chance ridden by Andrea Atzeni it won very well at this course last month and could do the same today.

2017 Royal Ascot tips Day 1

Royal Ascot is one of the flat meetings of the season and a lot of money is gambled over this period. Here’s your best bets for Tuesday’s racing

Day 1:

2:30 Queen Anne Stakes

Ribchester 4/5

Ribchester will not lose this race. Been a brilliant horse throughout the past couple of years and is probably at longer odds than it should be due to a 3rd place finish in March where it should have won. If I was to place an each way bet in this race it would be Mutakayyef at 6/1, 3rd in the Juddmonte at York last year in a very impressive performance and beat another runner in this race Dutch Connection here last year

3:05 Coventry Stakes

De Bruyne Horse 6/1

Named after one of the best footballers in the world this is one of the best horses in the race. Winning both starts over 6f finishing very strongly in both outings at both Epsom and Ripon. Should be there or thereabouts in this race if it runs its best.

3:40 Kings Stand Stakes

Priceless 10/1

Won 3 of last 4 starts. Beat Ryan Moore’s ride in this race Washington DC comfortably last time out after being beaten by it in May so it seems to be improving in every run. Another horse that finished well. Lady Aurelia goes into this as favourite and I don’t think that it will win as it has never impressed me.

4:20 St James Palace Stakes

Churchill 8/13

Churchill should easily win this one. So impressive as the 2,000 Guineas winner and a short price favourite with the combination of Aiden O’Brien and Ryan Moore should never lose. But at 8/13 it is not a price that many people will back. Maybe you are best off just adding it to an accumulator to improve the odds as it will win. But if you want a longer odds bet in this race the forecast of Churchill and Barney Roy won’t come in at astronomical odds but should land comfortably.

5:00 Ascot Stakes Handicap

Oceane 11/1

A horse that I saw win impressively in York last year at 6/1 runs Tuesday at 11/1 and can not be ignored. Had a poor run of form since the win in York but placed 2nd last time out. The poor run of form should lead to it carrying less weight in the handicap giving it a much better chance to win. Quick ground suits him and with the weather forecast, it could all fall into place for Oceane to be an 11/1 winner.


5:35 Windsor Castle Stakes.

Nootka Sound 5/1

Anything could win this race. In such a big field form can go right out of the window if the horse gets a bad draw or gets out of the blocks slowly. But anything with Frankie Dettori on its back has a good chance.
