Royal Ascot is the pinnacle of flat racing, five days of the best flat action anywhere in the world. It attracts runners from America, Japan, Australia and beyond, bringing together flat racing’s elite trainers, owners, and jockeys. From top-quality Group 1s, to highly-competitive handicaps, the Royal meeting has it all!
I’ve gone through the card at Royal Ascot and picked out four horses who I believe are massively overpriced and should be going close in their respective races! All our Royal Ascot tips race are on site now! With the price of the runners, I’d recommend going each-way!
Theory Of Time (Queen Mary, Day 2) (12/1)
A daughter of Dubawi, Theory Of Time made a hugely promising debut at Windsor last month, winning a fillies’ novice race very comfortably. She only needed to be nudged out and looked potentially pattern class that day. These connections do extremely well with similar types and the booking of James Doyle suggests she is the first string for the yard.
This is likely to be very strongly run and given her pedigree, she should have no problem seeing out the uphill finish to go extremely close.
Anna Nerium (Duke Of Cambridge, Day 2) (14/1)
Deservedly returning to the winner’s enclosure on her latest outing, Anna Nerium swooped late to land a Group 3 at Epsom. She did that cosily and she took the eye by the way she travelled that day. She’s rated to be right in the mix and arrives here in great form to match. She’s more than likely to get her ideal surface and with plenty of potential pace, this could be set up for her.
Beatboxer (Britannia Stakes, Day 3) (14/1)
Winning three of his five starts, Beatboxter really caught my eye on his latest start at Haydock. He was given a huge amount to do on the day by Robert Havlin and didn’t exactly get the best of passages, having to switch wide. He came home with a strong late burst to win by a neck, but that doesn’t tell half of the story.
He’s good value for the seven-pound rise he’s received and should have no problem overcoming it, with a strongly run mile right up his alley. I’d be highly surprised if he stayed the price that he currently is.
Fujaira Prince (Duke Of Edinburgh, Day 4) (7/1)
Returning this season with a cosy winner at Doncaster, Fujaira Prince bumped into First Eleven on his latest start at York in the Jorvik Handicap. He was just outbattled in the closing stages, pulling two lengths clear with him in the closing stages. He’s gone up four pounds for that, but that’s far from harsh.
He remains extremely lightly raced for a five-year-old and he should keep getting better with each time he hits the racecourse. He’s another who I can’t see staying the price he is currently and should run a huge race.
