A Winning Favourite For Each Day Of Royal Ascot 2021
One Favourite We Think Will Win On Each Day Of Royal Ascot 2021
It’s that time again, Royal Ascot is back – with the Berkshire track set to play host to five fantastic days of racing. With such a variety of racing available, however, it can be difficult to know which way to turn. Well, here at Racing Tips, we have tried to simplify the action slightly by nominating a favourite on each day that we feel will justify their odds – check out our thoughts below.
Day One – PALACE PIER 4/9 (Queen Anne Stakes, 14:30)
Punters at Royal Ascot 2021 can get off to a winning start courtesy of PALACE PIER in the curtain-raising Queen Anne Stakes. This colt is now 7-8 in his career, with one of those victories coming in the St James’s Palace Stakes at this very meeting last year. Odds of 4/9 may initially look prohibitive, but he is the class angle in this race and should prove his superiority over these rivals.
Day Two – LADY BOWTHORPE 2/1 (Duke Of Cambridge Stakes, 15:40)
Should Palace Pier expectantly get the job done, LADY BOWTHORPE would suddenly look a strong proposition in the following day’s Duke Of Cambridge Stakes. Lady Bowthorpe has taken her form to a new level this season, backing up a Group 2 win over Queen Power when chasing home Palace Pier at Newbury last month. She looks a very solid proposition here at around the 2/1-mark back racing against her own sex.
Day Three – STRADIVARIUS Evs (Gold Cup, 16:20)
There’s no sentimentality involved, STRADIVARIUS should match Yeats and record a fourth straight Gold Cup win. John Gosden’s stable star has now won a remarkable 17 of his 27 starts – seven of those coming at Group 1 level. Conditions should be right up his street next week, and a recent course win showed that he had lost none of his enthusiasm for racing.
Day Four – FLOTUS 4/1 (Albany Stakes, 14:30)
Simon & Ed Crisford’s FLOTUS produced a striking turn of foot to land a Goodwood maiden on debut last month. She had attracted good market support beforehand, suggesting that the performance wasn’t unexpected, and connections feel that she will be a better filly on better ground. With this in mind, the 4/1 available on Flotus looks worth capitalising on.
Day Five – POINT LONSDALE 7/4 (Chesham Stakes, 14:30)
POINT LONSDALE certainly has the pedigree to be a major force at two – being a full brother to stablemate Broome (Group 1 placed at two). This colt created a fine impression in his own right when justifying favouritism to take a Curragh maiden at the start of this month.
Connections afterwards nominated the Chesham as his target, and he can get favourite backers off to a good start on the final day of Royal Ascot 2021 by landing the spoils in a race that his yard has dominated in recent years.
