Below are today's pointers and tips for the the third day of Royal Ascot. Good luck, and enjoy to anyone who is in attendance today!
2.30 5f class 1 Norfolk Stakes (Group 2) –
Log Out Island 2/1
Likely to be a two horse race, between the two Hannon horses, but our preference is for Log Out Island who made a very encouraging and promising debut over C&D in April. Looked a decent time and with more progress to come can run the fav close. At the prices, just edges it for us.
3.05 1m 2f class 1 Tercentenary Stakes (Formerly The Hampton Court Stakes) (Group 3) –
Disegno 8/1 EW
Shapes as if there is a big performance to come, a very close 2nd last time at Chester in a listed race when upped in trip last time out. Quicker ground today and should run close at a decent price.
3.40 1m 4f class 1 Ribblesdale Stakes (Fillies' Group 2) –
Pamona 7/1 EW.
Made good start to career last season and was back on track with a good third when upped in trip on return at Newbury last time, could have finished closer than result suggests. Up in trip again and very interesting type.
4.20 2m 4f class 1 Gold Cup (British Champions Series) (Group 1) –
Simenom 12/1 EW
Couple times course and distance winner, and with reappearance effort under belt could be a solid each way bet now back up in trip, with stamina assured.
5.00 1m class 2 Britannia Stakes (Heritage Handicap) –
No bet here, with it looking a really tricky puzzle to solve, best to keep your money in your pocket here.
5.35 1m 4f class 2 King George V Stakes (Handicap) –
Keen on Sir Micaheal Stoute's runner Dissolution but can't have the 7/2 unfortunately in this field. Slice of value here looks to be Taper Tantrum, who was better than result suggests last time out on return. Should be sharper for that run , going up in trip significantly.
