Sporting Double – World Cup and Royal Ascot
Much as I want England to do well I have to be realistic and, with their effort revolving around Wayne Rooney, the risk of elimination before the final is high. My idea of the tournament winner is Argentina.
Royal Ascot is one of my favourite meetings and provides the backbone of form to rely on for the rest of the summer months.
Review of yesterday’s blog (Monday 7th June)
Talk about hitting the crossbar! Both the selections were 2nd with BESTY taking advantage of the draw and going 4 lengths clear 2f out, he was collared by the odds-on fav just 75 yards from the line and went down by less-than a length. I advised taking the 11/1 in the morning ew and BESTY started at 15/2. NIGHT LILY also went close, coming with a rattling run and just failing by a head to beat the rank outside and long-time leader. I advised taking the 11/2 in the morning and NIGHT LILY started at 9/2. This was a great ew double.
I also highlighted YOU CAN OF COURSE and - although not nominated as a selection – he ran a good 3rd having been subject to a lot of support to start the 7/2 fav (was 13/2 when blog was published).
There are meetings at Salisbury and Redcar this afternoon.
At Salisbury, Henry Candy sends HOOLIGAN SEAN for the 3:55 – his full brother won this race last year, tho’ this will be more difficult. Henry Cecil had 2 winners yesterday and he has just ON HER WAY for the 4:30. Her half-sister Chater Way was rated OR103 before going to Hong Kong and this looks a great opportunity, especially as Cecil has a 32% strike-rate here. Current odds of 5/1 look fair.
At Redcar, Sir Mark Prescott sends his only runner today 208 miles for the 3:00 – LUTINE BELL. The man has his stable “on fire” at the moment but, even so, I cannot have this one at current odds of 7/4. Dandy Nicholls has his stable hitting form with Royal Ascot round the corner and he send 2 horses to Redcar, of which JACK DAWKINS in the 3:55 looks very interesting. Didn’t run well LTO, but he usually needs a run and that’s how it was last season when he won off OR90. He’s back to that rating today and warrants ew interest at 25/1 (Blue Square) as he’s just 14’s in some places.
Next week is Royal Ascot and - so long as the rain stays away - we can expect a feast of racing.
