Royal Ascot Day 2

We came pretty darn close to having the perfect start to the meeting with a 14/1 winner (at advised odds), but ALJAMAAHEER was nabbed close home after looking the most likely winner entering then final furlong. The selection finished 2nd and was returned at an SP of 8/1 – I did say his morning odds of 14/1 were generous – with his “place-only” SP odds on the exchanges being 2.93. Overall, a profit on the opening race of about ½pt via the place-only wager. 
Unfortunately, my other selection Dundonnell was denied a run at a crucial stage and had to check and never recovered, tho’ he probably wasn’t good enough. With a point lost on him, plus the loss of my each-way double, I've ended the day down 1pt.

The 2nd-day of the meeting has a few opportunities.

2:30 Jersey Stakes
This is one of my favourite races, but this year’s renewal has 21-runners and looks wide open. Normally, I have a wager in this but, this year, I’m giving it a miss.

3:45 Prince Of Wales Stakes
Last season, I won with a fairly decent wager on The Fugue at Goodwood. This filly is top-class and possesses a stunning turn-of-foot. However, this being her seasonal debut, it is a lot to ask to see her winning this. The presence of last year’s Derby winner Camelot means that the favourite AL KAZEEM is generally available at 5/2 and (given his form this season) that looks generous.
We know the horse holds Camelot as he beat him fair’n’square LTO. As such, I am surprised the horse is trading at longer than 7/4. He has to be a wager, and I’m having 1pt win on him at 5/2.

With the final 3 races on the card not providing a betting opportunity for me today, AL KAZEEM is my only wager and hopefully he can take us into profit for the meeting.

  1. AL KAZEEM does the biz!
    I cannot believe that his odds lengthened to 11/4 and as the horse was readily available with plenty of "best odds guaranteed" bookmakers, I'm having that.
    Profit today = 2.75pts
