3.30 Strat- Cernunnos UR
Royal Ascot 2017
A race preview below from Dr Nick Hardman over at the Betting Insiders Club. The prices of a couple in here caught the eye!
The most wide open two year old race at the meeting with huge price winners and placed horses over the years. However, before we get to the outsiders, the main selection is Nootka Sound for Wesley Ward who knows what it takes to win this race and is quite bullish (no surprise there) about this one. Now to the rags. It may be that there are no surprises this year but this race has thrown up a 100/1 winner and a couple of 100/1 placers in recent times. If you don’t fancy this then just stick to the main selection, but this is Royal Ascot and I will have a few each way on these total outsiders. Last Page is a four race maiden, but one of those he shipped his rider and he has been runner up on the other three. His best run was his last a Beverley over 5 ½f, beaten a couple of lengths by Prince Of The Dark who is fancied to run well in the Coventry. He also lost out by a head to Chagatai who holds a Group 1 entry in Ireland. The other is Areen Faisal who ran OK on debut on decent ground and may not have been suited by good to soft next time. Both these runners fair OK on RP speed times (3rd and joint 7th). They may well finish as the last two but you never know and PP go 5 places.
Nootka Sound @11/2 UP
Last Page @100/1 e/w (1/5 odds, 5 places, PP) or 150/1 (1/5 odds, 4 places, Coral) 5th
Areen Faisal @100/1 e/w (1/5 odds, 5 places, PP) or 100/1 (1/5 odds, 4 places) most others UP
That will be all for Tuesday. Nice to find a decent 12/1 winner on Monday’s post. No idea how he won going away given how lively he was pre race and how much he pulled. He could be decent, if ever learning how to race. (African, 8.45 Wind)
