Racing Tips – Tuesday Best Bets for Royal Ascot

Royal Ascot is rated Good to Firm, good in places.

Best Bet

12. Nature Strip
Ascot R4 (12:40am)

Australians have had plenty of success in this race and Nature Strip is probably the best horse we have ever sent over there. 20 wins, and almost $18 million in prizemoney says it all. The 1000m at Ascot is probably ideal for him, it’s pretty much uphill and he can sit just off Golden Pal, and run past him late.

Recommended Price: $2.70
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

2. Blackbeard
Ascot R2 (12:05am)

Blackbeard has won three from three in Ireland and looks well placed to give Aidan O’Brien his tenth win in this race. His most recent start when stretched out to 1200m was his most impressive performance and that race experience edge should hold him in good stead.

Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

8. Lusail
Ascot R7 (1:20am)

Coroebus is understandably a dominant favourite for this race off the back of his dominant 2000 Guineas win but there was a lot to like about the run of Lusail. The Richard Hannon trained colt bungled the start and then had no luck in the run, if the breaks go his way he is certainly capable of running into the money at a big price.

Recommended Price: $17/4.40
Confidence Level: 3/5
