BIG ROCK CAN PLAY CATCH-ME

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 2.30 Royal Ascot (Queen Anne Stakes, 1m) Four-time winner Aidan O’Brien doesn’t have a runner, and colts fancied from the dominant four-year-olds are limited to the grey Charyn and Big Rock.

Of three French raiders, Big Rock (made all) and Facteur Cheval were one-two, six lengths apart, at Ascot (1m soft) in October.

Earlier there wasn’t much between them in the Moulin (1m good to soft) when both colts were beaten by the filly, Sauterne, but Facteur Cheval comes out best at the weights and won on a sound surface at Meydan in the Spring.

Big Rock’s best form on good ground was when front-running in the French Derby (1m 2f+) but couldn’t hold subsequent Arc winner, Ace Impact.

A mighty effort in retrospect and there should be no problem with the ground; progeny of his sire, Rock Of Gibraltar, are actually best on good and firm.

Charyn was well held by Facteur Cheval in the Sussex Stakes (soft) and was beaten on his reappearance by Audience in the Lockinge (good), when Big Rock stumbled anticipating the start; Royal Scotsman trying to duck out.

DAQMAN best on BETDAQ: 6.8 Big Rock


COWARD IN PISSARRO PICTURE

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 3.05 Royal Ascot (Coventry Stakes, 6f) Aidan O’Brien, who has won it 10 times, restricts himself to one runner, Camille Pissarro, beaten in a Group 3 the last day and, as a grandson of Pivotal, with worries about the ground.

Camille Pissarro is low drawn where six winners have come from in 11 years but a high call can win, and best to split your bets in sprints until the results show any bias, one side or another.

In the middle of May, Andesite won a fierce battle with Yah Mo Be There at York, and you wonder whether they will remember it. Francisco’s Piece has been good on soft.

Richard Hannon is having a classic year, but has The Actor read the script? He was unruly at the start at Newmarket, though horses he beat have won well since, including Al Qudra, third. That’s twice they have finished that way round, but are now on opposite sides of the draw, in 4 and 16 respectively.

Cowardofthecounty is ‘a bit special’, a big beast by Kodi Bear, with several sons liking it firm; who will dare say his name to his face?

On a line through Whistlejacket and Arizona Blaze, he doesn’t have to improve to beat Camille Pissarro.

DAQMAN best on BETDAQ: 6.3 Cowardofthecounty, 7.8 Camille Pissarro, 14.5 The Actor


REPEAT OF BREEDERS CUP 1-2

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 3.45 Royal Ascot (King Charles 111 Stakes, 5f) I’ve written about the horse; I‘ve written about the race; and I’m standing by Big Evs, out of stall 6.

Winner of the Windsor Castle at Royal Ascot last year and of five out of six starts since his debut, including the Breeders Cup Juvenile on fast ground at Santa Anita (pictured below).

In the high draw (14) is Valiant Force, within half a length of Big Evs at Santa Anita, after winning the Norfolk Stakes here at Royal Ascot last June.

FORTUNE COOKIE: Big Evs


ROSALLION’S NOTABLE REVENGE

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 4.25 Royal Ascot (St James Palace Stakes, 1m) Richard Hannon was already looking at this race with delighted anticipation, as soon as Rosallion failed to slip away from Notable Speech at Newmarket.

He needs the bend on this Round Course, having improved for the Curragh hairpin in the Irish 2,000. His sire won the Jubilee at this meeting on firm ground.

Henry Longfellow was well behind Metropolitan on the soft in the French Guineas but such a bleak first effort has meant nothing to other Ballydoyle big guns who have won their very next Classic!

FORTUNE COOKIE: Rosallion


THE MONEY’S DOWN ON NUSRET

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 5.05 Royal Ascot (Ascot Stakes, 2m 4f) Third on a sound surface in this race last season, Tritonic is 5lb lower today and this has always been the plan. Right age; right rating; trainer in good form this year.

Law Of The Sea is the selection of Ian Williams, who has won this twice in the last five seasons but, though fourth last year, is very hard to win with (1-16 on turf).

Horses of seven or eight come to the fore and Berkshire Rocco, who loves it firm, could enjoy this marathon. Nusret is another who prefers top of the ground and has won after a break; one for money overnight.

Willie Mullins’ My Lyka is an Irish St Leger entry; with only seven career runs, he is unexposed, though seemingly not to Willie.

Zanndabad is one of few in the race with previous marathon experience; an eyecatching third, staying on, in the Chester Cup.

DAQMAN best value on BETDAQ: 6 Zanndabad, 10.5 Nusret, 14 Tritonic


BOTANICAL SHOULD LIKE FIRM

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 5.40 Royal Ascot (Wolferton Stakes, 1m 2f) LAYS LOGIC: just one winning favourite in 14 years, with Team Gosden having Torito and Israr vying for the front of the market, both beaten favourite the last day!

Torito (not clear run) was fourth in the 3yo-only version of this last June. Israr has won or been placed in six Group races.

Haunted Dream’s turf form is 1-16. But Cambridgeshire winner, Astro King, continues in good heart, and looks good value, back to his trip and on his ground.

Botanical steps up to Listed company after impressive handicap wins, aiming at this race all along.

Though his sire was a French Derby star – and the sire of this year’s winner of the same race – his progeny much prefer good and firm ground.

DAQMAN best value on BETDAQ: 5.5 Botanical, 16 Astro King


MOORE BACK WITH SMART FOX

DAY-BY-DAY STATS: last Tuesday. FORTUNE COOKIES: Sunday.
BETDAQ Sportsbook: daily prices. BETDAQ Exchange: offers you can trade.

🎩 6.15 Royal Ascot (Copper Horse Handicap, 1m 6f) Willie Mullins, who set a puzzle in the marathon at 5.05 with a likely favourite that has unlikely form, does the same again, with Belloccio to follow up Willie’s one-two in this 1m 6f handicap last year.

Cheekpieces and the drop out of pattern company could put Naqeeb into the picture. Though lightly raced, A Piece Of Heaven has won from 1m 4f to 2m and his attitude is impressive.

Fox Journey stepped up on previous form the last day and now looks strong handicap material for Sir Michael Stoute and Ryan Moore, who has been in champion form with seven winners and three placed from his last 13 rides.

DAQMAN best value on BETDAQ: 6.1 Fox Journey, 9.3 A Piece Of Heaven, 19.5 Naqeeb
