Top hats and tails at the ready, it’s the opening day of Royal Ascot on Tuesday and we’re hoping to start the meeting with a few winners courtesy of our top tipping team.
The gaffer Paddy Power himself, racing pundit and fake tan legend Matt Chapman, urban legend Turftalk Tom and a mystery trader from down the corridors of Power Tower go at it to hopefully provide us with enough winners to pay for a bucket-load of champagne and caviar.
The opening day features three Group 1 races, and in the first race of the day, the Queen Anne Stakes, Paddy Power is giving you your money back as a free bet if your horse finishes second or third. Not a bad safety net to kick-off a week of punting.
French ace Solow (6/4), Paddy’s pride and joy Sole Power (7/2) and Gleaneagles (8/13) get the most votes off the tipsters and that turns into a 17/1 treble at the current overnight prices.
Can our top tipsters start our week off with a bang? Fingers crossed.
