Royal Ascot Day 3

Aiden and Joseph O’Brien haven’t tasted success this week, but THE GREAT WAR is probably their best chance. This two year old has cruised both of his starts to date. It’s a shame that we have such a small field for this, however there are a couple of horses of interest Baitha Alga won nicely at Epsom a few weeks ago, however I would also have expected The Great War to win that race well. Wesley Ward has brought over To Be Determined, however they watered the track last night which may go against his chances. I think that the O’Brien horse has more than a 50% chance of winning this so anything at even money is ‘value’

I don’t think that Cloudscape and Postponed can win this race, on the form book they shouldn’t be able to reverse form with Barley Mow and MUTAKAYYEF. Barley Mow is not a horse I particularity like, due to his form being a bit all over the place, however his races look to be the ones to take a form line from as they tie in a number of runners. Last time Barley Mow and Mutakayyef met the Hannon and Hughes horse came out on top after hampering the Haggas horse. Mutakayyef only lost by a neck that day, so without interference I think he’ll be able to turn those placings around here. Cannock Chase is the favourite but this is a big step up on what he has faced so far, therefore I want to be against him.

BRACELET was favourite for The Oaks throughout the winter, however she didn’t turn after a poor showing in the 1000 Guineas. However she’s down in class and up in trip, which in theory should be perfect for her, on breeding. Some doubts have been expressed about her ability to stay a mile and a half due to the amount of speed she has shown, but if she does stay she could be very tough to beat. At the prices she’s an excellent each-way bet.

Leading Light is too short for me, the difference between him and BROWN PANTHER aren’t big enough to warrant the price difference. Michael Owens horse beat Ahzeemah and Altano in The Goodwood Cup last year, with the form he is in this season he should be able to ┬áconfirm that form. Saddler’s Rock and Simenon have lost their way this season. Last years winner Estimate hasn’t had a run this season due to injuries and I don’t think she’ll be ready for this. The ground will probably be too firm for Tac De Boistron and Pale Mimosa. With three places available it’s hard to find many horse that will finish ahead of Brown Panther, therefore if he shows the same level of form he’s shown this season I think he’ll place and go very close to winning.
