Ryan Moore set the world alight at Royal Ascot on Tuesday, riding three winners on Day 1. He’s riding out of his skin at the moment and none of the other jockeys want to be upside him with a furlong to go. With this in mind, we’ve picked out his three best chances on Thursday and combined them into a monster treble. Two of his winners on Day 1 were for regular boss Aidan O’Brien and he trains all three selections for Day 3. Check out our free tips page for daily content across British and Irish racing.
Bertinelli (7-1, bet365) got up late to win a valuable handicap at Newbury last time out. The handicapper has since raised him 5lb and he’s perhaps not the best handicapped horse in the field. This improving sort could still have something in hand however and the step up to 1m4f will be right up his street. It’s always interesting when O’Brien prepares a handicap campaign for one of his horses and Bertinelli could be promoted to pattern race company soon.
Emily Dickinson (6-1, bet365) was a little disappointing at the Curragh last time out but the race wasn’t run to suit. Aidan O’Brien is confident we’ll see a much better performance here and the new trip looks likely to suit. Very impressive on her sole start over two miles, the further she goes the better she’ll get. The stable won this last year with the injured Kyprios and Emily Dickinson looks like an able deputy.
Drumroll (6-1, Paddy Power) is a regally bred colt and is improving with every run. He found only Paddington too good for him in a Listed race at the Curragh on his penultimate start and went one better in Group 3 company last time. Further progress is expected here and this looks like excellent placement.
