The working week is almost over, and the first pint of the weekend is so close we can almost taste it. On second thoughts that might still be the taste from last night’s pints, but still, you get the idea. To hopefully fund a night of responsible drinking and completely appropriate disco dancing, we’ve combined the brain-power of four top tipsters to mark your card at Royal Ascot.
Not only that – despite getting rinsed (see below) by Log Out Island and King of Rooks finishing second & third in yesterday’s opener – Paddy’s still going money back as a free bet if your horse finishes second or third in the opening race on Friday, the Group 3 Albany Stakes.
- The Norfolk Stakes was Paddy Power’s third most expensive offer of the year after the Supreme Novices (MBS if Douvan wins) and the Arkle Chase (MBS if Un de Sceaux wins) at Cheltenham.
Two highly competitive Group 1 races to keep us entertained while we stream them on our phones in the office. Limato lost his unbeaten record at Haydock in May but is favourite in the Commonwealth Cup at 3.40pm, before Found – second in the Irish 1,000 Guineas, – takes on all challengers in the fast and furious Coronation Stakes.
Our tipsters have studied the form so you don’t have to and here are their hottest tips of the day.
