The booms were back at myracing.com HQ on Friday as we netted a superb accumulator at Royal Ascot. The acca could have been backed at highs of 33-1 and the roof came off the house when the final leg got the job done! You can back today’s Royal Ascot Day 5 acca using the bet slips below.
Meditate was our NAP of the Day on Friday so everything rested on the Aidan O’Brien trained filly in the opening Albany Stakes over 6f. This girl never looked anything but a winner as soon as she broke from the stalls, always up there throughout before scorching away when asked.
It had been a disastrous week for both Frankie Dettori and John Gosden but we knew their luck would change with Inspiral. Everyone knew she had the best form in the book, but she had been off the track quite a long time so fitness had to be taken on trust. It has to be said that it probably wasn’t Frankie’s best ride in this Coronation Stakes but she got him out of trouble and really showed her class to win by more than four lengths.
The final leg was another Aidan O’Brien runner in the shape of Changingoftheguard, whose run in the Derby at Epsom could be forgiven. This was a big drop down in class for the stayer, and he battled gamely to the line to see off the challenge of Grand Alliance by a short head. If the runner up had stayed on a true line, it might have been a different result, but we will take it.
