Royal Ascot – Tips For Your Free Bets!
3:05pm – BLACKBEARD
Perfect in three starts for Aidan O’Brien so far, with the latest victory coming at Curragh (6f, good to yielding) in the Group 3 – Marble Hill Stakes, when 3.5 lengths clear of Tough Talk. Persian Force goes in as joint favourite with this quality performer, but you have to suspect there is more to come from this Ryan Moore ride this afternoon, so is the choice to make it four on the bounce.
5:00pm – ARCADIAN SUNRISE
Talented dual discipline runner for John Queally, whose last win was back in August of last year, when sealing a double at York (2m, good) in a handicap, beating Rajinsky by 1.25 lengths. Lightly raced since and returned to action after six months off to place a creditable fourth of fourteen in the Chester Cup, behind Cleveland. Big shout here in this stamina test and offers the main threat to favourite, Bring On The Night.
6:10pm – CLEVELAND
Picked up a maiden win, way back in November 2020 at Curragh and was not seen for over 500 days, until March of this year, when clearly needing the run at Naas. Aidan O’Brien’s runner then stepped up to take the Chester Cup last month, ahead of Coltraine, Rajinsky and the aforementioned Arcadian Sunshine, winning by a neck. Unexposed over this 1m 6f distance and looks the one to beat.
