Royal Ascot meet starts off with a bang tomorrow
Pre-occupied with a court hearing tomorrow morning, I will not be able to watch until the replays tomorrow night

Best race meet in the world imo. I have a very knowledgeable friend who sent me his picks, and I will share themonly with mfriends here. If possible, I will bet these races.

So heres what I like for tomorrow:



230: (3) Frankel over (2) Excelebration, (7) Side Glance, and (8) Strong Suit in Exactas & Trifectas.



305- Kings Stand.

2 probable favorite, needs it fast

5 9yo from Hong Kong, dont like him to win but could hit the board

6 6yo from Hong Kong, looks stronger of the 2 after 2 straight wins

12 fast-closing 2nd to #2 last out, G1 winner at 5f.

15 won Abbaye last year but poor reappearance. Using in gimmicks.

16 Rocket, off form, visor on. Trainer has done this before.

18 one of 3 favorites, along with 2 & 19. Won the Dubai race.

19 Good winner last out in France, 1 of 3 favorites

21 2nd to 19 in France, 60-1, using in gimmicks.



345 St. Jamess Palace. Weak renewal; Irish 2000 Guineas form best. # 6 Foxtrot Romeo was a good 2nd there & is 20-1 on Betfair, hes definitely my each-way bet.

To win: 6 (2nd Irish 2000) 10 (won Fr 2000) 13 (won Irish 2000, 4-1 fav)


2(9-1 Betfair): ½ to Sea The Stars. They keep backing him. Ill use in the gimmicks but I dont think hes that good.

3 (21-1): Paul Reddams. Jamie went to walk the course to decide whether to run. He wants it good at least. Ill use in gimmicks if he runs; won well in good bunch last out.

4 (11-1): Good 2yo in Ireland, owners moved him to Delzangles. Beat Dabarsim in Fr 2000 prep but close 9th in messy race in the race itself. Wise guy horse; gimmicks.

5 (11-1): Strawbridge. Good 6th to Camelot in Eng 2000, then 3rd to Bonfire in Dante. Dettori switches from #3, this should be best of Gosdens 3.

6 (19-1): 2nd in Irish 2000, huge overlay in here in my opinion.

9 (11-1): 3rd in Eng 2000, just 6th in Ir 2000 but jock sticks with him over #4.

10 (11-1): won Fr 2000 but not getting much credit for it.

12 (8-1): 3rd in Dewhurst last year, made belated seasonal debut in Fr 2000, wide trip, never in it. Evidently fancied to improve a lot.

13 (4-1): won Ir 2000, 2nd in Dewhurst last year, has best form, worthy favorite in an apparently very open race.



425 Coventry. Here I like 5 horses to win

5 & 20 were impressive Listed race winners. 3 is Coolmore # 1, 13 is Coolmore # 2 use both. 6 is Michael Hills preferred, impressive maiden winner in a good race. Also using 1, 7 (Englishman stable # 2), 21 (selected of several Sheikh Hamdan) in gimmicks.


500 Pass


535 Lot of money for #10 & #14.


10 beat subsequent Listed winner last out, 2 back trounced a subsequent Listed 3rd (different Listed).

14 narrowly beaten 1st out by good colt who went to FR & won well, then this colt aired 2nd out, hot trainer goes to Murtagh

best of luck to those playing
don't miss this if you can watch
