Royal Ascot is the highlight of the summer for fans of racing and fashion who will join the Queen for five days at the famous Berkshire racetrack and here at Value Horse Tips, we will be bringing you our opinions each day. The following blog post will provide horse tips, information and betting pointers for Day 1 of Royal Ascot 2014.
2.30 1m 0f Class 1 Queen Anne Stakes –
TORONADO Evens. There is little doubt that if the Richard Hannon inmate runs to the form of his Qipco Sussex Stakes victory at Goodwood, where he beat Dawn Approach by half a length,then it will take a huge run from somewhere else in the field to deny punters a winning start.Stable has been going very well lately and should be absolutely primed for his return to action.
Betfair Sportsbook are offering all new customers an enhanced price of 4/1 for Toronado, max stake £10.
Sky Bet are offering money back, up to £25, if Toronado wins. Worth having an EW punt on SOFT FALLING RAIN here.
3.05 1m 0f Class 1 Queen Anne Stakes –
3.45 5f Class 1 Kings Stand Stakes – (Bet365,Sky Bet & Coral paying 4 places for EW bets)
REX IMPERATOR 20/1 EW – 2nd in a listed race on his return earlier this month and with usual cheekpieces re-applied tomorrow has a squeak if can pull out a career best from plum draw.
GUERRE 11/1 EW.Another who has impressed over in Ireland and has to step things up to take this but ticks plenty of boxes. Shaped well and with Moore taking over the reigns looks a good bet from decent draw.
4.25 1m 0f Class 1 St Jamess Palace Stakes –
KINGMAN 11/10. The second of the short priced runners tomorrow and we would love to oppose with a bit of value but at 5/2 Night Of Thunder does not represent that. Kingman was aruably unlucky the way the race panned out at Newmarket, when beat by Night Of Thunder but should be able to take revenge here.
Betfair sportsbook are offering 4/1 for any new customers on the chances of Kingman, whoever we would steer you towards Toronado at the same price rather than this offer.
5.00 2m 4f Class 2 Ascot Stakes –
5.35 5f Class 1 Windsor Castle Stakes – (Bet365, Sky Bet, Paddy Power, Ladbrokes 4 places EW bets)
HOOTENANNY 8/1 EW. This bet was posted earlier to members and on Twitter with reasons explained. Hope you all took the early price flagged up, can see this getting backed all day.
BET BRIGHT are giving all new customers a risk free £30 bet for Royal Ascot. If your bet loses then they will return the £30 to your account which you can withdraw, seems no lose!
