Racing Tips – Saturday Best Bets for Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot is rated Good to Firm.

Best Bet

3. Hurricane Lane
Ascot R3 (12:40pm)

Hurricane Lane was one of the outstanding three year olds of his generation with victories in the Irish Derby, Grand Prix de Paris and St. Leger, not mention a narrow third in the Arc at his most recent start. The Godolphin galloper is simply a class above his rivals here.

Recommended Price: $1.50
Confidence Level: 5/5

3. Crypto Force
Ascot R1 (11:30pm)

Crypto Force was knocked down for 900K GBP on Monday and his owners look like getting a quick return. There is not much between him and the odds on favourite for this race, Alfred Munnings, on their form in the Emerald Isle, with some of the same horses finishing down the track behind them.

Recommended Price: $6.00
Confidence Level: 3/5

2. Artorius
Ascot R4 (1:20am)

The Australian form has already held up well with Nature Strip bolting in and suspect it can do so again here. Artorius is clearly the value of the two. A tough 1200m up the straight is probably his ideal scenario as long as he can jump away fairly cleanly. There is no way that there should be as much between him and Home Affairs as the market suggests.

Recommended Price: $5.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5
