Thursday June 20th is Ascot Gold Cup day at Royal Ascot 2013 and our Each-Way “Longshot” betting tip goes in that race. A 20/1 (21.00) shot with Stan James this morning, the horse’s chance is definitely being underrated by British and Irish bookmakers. We also have two strong fancies lined up amongst today’s horse racing betting tips. For the full story on all of these, read on…
3.20 Ripon – London Bridge @ 9/4 (3.25) with BetVictor
5.35 Ascot – Bold Sniper @ 11/2 (6.50) with Coral
Longshot of the day:
3.45 Ascot – Altano @ 20/1 (21.00) with Stan James
The first of our horse racing betting tips for Thursday June 20th goes in the 3.20 at Ripon, where Jo Hughes saddles London Bridge, currently rated a 9/4 (3.25) chance with BetVictor. The colt won well last time out over an inadequate trip and reappears quickly under a penalty, on ground that will suit him perfectly. He won’t even need to improve on that victory to land this race, although he is entitled to do so now upped in trip. It may not be the biggest of prices, but this morning’s odds still look like value to me.
Shifting our focus to the main meeting of the day, we are sweet on the chances of Bold Sniper in the King George V Stakes (the 5.35 at Ascot). Trained by Sir Michael Stoute who has a strong record in the race with four winners and countless places since 1998, the colt is bred to appreciate this trip and is still lightly raced, so can improve today to give the Queen a winner. At the current price of 11/2 (6.50) with Coral, he looks like a good bet to shoot down his rivals.
Our bigger priced Each-Way selection for Thursday June 20th is Altano in the 3.45 at Ascot, the Gold Cup. We put up Andreas Wohler’s seven year old in our 2013 Ascot Gold Cup preview a couple of weeks ago, at a huge price of 50/1 (51.00) – those odds are no longer available, but Stan James still bet 20/1 (21.00) this morning. Last seen when winning a Group 3 over in Germany, the horse (pictured) has been targeted at this one and is definitely being underrated by the British betting firms.
