Day 2 of Royal Ascot looks a competitive days racing with no standout favourites in any of the six races. With tasty odds on offer in most combining your selections in multiples could lead to huge returns from very small stakes.
The first three races on the card all feature horses making the journey across the Channel from France and we think they have a chanc of running well.
2.30 – Jersey Stakes (Group 3) 7f
MUTIN @ 9/1 with Bet Victor
First up is MUTIN who is unbeaten in 4 starts to date. It is sometimes difficult to weigh up the French form against the British form but he is a Listed winner already and has always looked to have more up his sleeve. He has won on good ground and over a mile so the stiff 7f should prove no problem to him and he should give a good account of himself.
3.05 – Duke Of Cambridge Stakes (Group 2) 1m
SARKIYLA @ 9/1 with Bet Victor
SARKIYLA has been slightly unlucky on a number of occasions in recent races often finishing her races very well but running out of time to get her head in front. A stiff finish here may help her in the latter stages and expect to see her running on strongly. A Group 3 winner she just failed to win a Group 2 event last time out and on form she certainly comes into the mix.
3.45 – Prince Of Wales’s Stakes (Group 1) 1m2f
MAXIOS @ 5/1 with Bet Victor
MAXIOS runs for French trainer Jonathan Pease and he was highly thought of early in his career before he struggled with set backs as a 3 year old. He has appeared better than ever of late, registering his first Group 1 success last time out in the Prix d’Ispahan. He was runner up in the Prix Ganay last year behind the smart German raider Pastorius, who managed to finish 4th behind Frankel at Ascot last season. Maxios finished ahead of the likes of Dunaden, Giofra, Saonois and Ridasiyna who are all Group 1 winners and his form puts him in the mix in the context of this race.
These three horses look to have solid each-way chances and by combining them in an each-way patent, even a couple of placed efforts will see us looking at some profit. A 1 point each-way patent would see a profit of around £950 off just a £14 stake with Bet Victor (odds accurate at time of writing)
