5 things you didn’t know about Day 3 at Royal AscotJune 18th, 2013
GB and USA in the Norfolk Stakes
British and USA bred horses both have a great record in the Norfolk Stakes and if you couple this with a win last time out then we have 10 of the last 15 winners covered from just 52 runners, which is 93% above expectations. Today's Qualifiers are :- Wind Fire, Eccleston, Saayerr, No Nay Never and Emirates Flyer
Sandown Last Time Out in the Gold Cup
Horses which ran at Sandown last time out before contesting the Gold Cup have won 6 of the last 15 renewals from just 56 runners. This is 46% above expectations. Today's Qualifiers are :- Times Up, Number Theory, Colour Vision, High Jinx and Model Pupil.
Britannia Stakes Mini System
We have a little mini system to try fathom the Britannia. Horse who have had no more than 7 runs in the last year and just 2 runs in the last 3 months who also finished in the first four home last time out are the prime target area. This still leaves with a large short list so we further refine to horses starting at 10/1 or lower. The figures are then 8 winners from the last 15 renewals for a £43 profit to a £1 stake at SP. Today's Qualifiers are :- Cape Peron
Lightly Raced in the King George V Stakes
Horses with not many miles on the clock in the last year have done very well in the King George V Stakes. No more than 6 runs in the last year and 4 in the last 3 months and just 1 prep run in the last month has resulted in 9 winners from the last 15 renewals from 109 runners. This is 53% above expectations and gives us a short-list to work with. Today's Qualifiers are :- Excellent Result, Eshtiaal, Bold Sniper, Empiricist (res) and Majeed (res).
IRE and USA in the Tercentenary Stakes
Horse bred in IRE or the USA have a good record in the Tercentenary Stakes and coupled with the first four in the betting leaves us with one qualifier. Today's Qualifiers are :- Indian Chief
