Royal Ascot 2.30
WALBANK (system – Damsire Oasis Dream, 2yos, Ascot)
Juvenile progeny with Oasis Dream as their damsire have an excellent record at Ascot, winning nine of their 52 races for a profit of £44.75 to a £1 level stake at SP. WALBANK found only Godolphin’s exciting Noble Style too good over trip and track on his debut last month and went one better in scintillating fashion at York shortly afterwards, romping home by seven lengths and clocking a good time in the process.
Since the beginning of 2012, Tim Easterby has a 20 from 155 record with his handicappers in first-time blinkers and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £81.88 to a £1 level stake at SP. THAKURI has shown very little to date but that was also the case with The Grey Wolf, a 14-1 winner on this system at Doncaster last Sunday. The application of headgear could work the oracle and she’s worth a small interest.
FOX CHAMPION (system – Ralph Beckett & claiming jockey combination)
Trainer Ralph Beckett has a great record when using jockeys who claim a weight allowance, scoring with 90 of the 697 qualifiers (12.9% strike-rate) for a profit of £73.51 to a £1 level stake at SP. FOX CHAMPION has 3lb claimer Laura Pearson doing the steering today and his previous solid form after a break (twice a winner) suggests the 264-day absence won’t be an issue. He looks well drawn in stall 2 and is 1-1 on Polytrack.
ROYAL ASCOT 5.00
JIMI HENDRIX (system – New Bay 3yos, recent run)
Three-year-old progeny of the sire New Bay have won 39 of their 177 starts (22% strike-rate) when returned to the track within six weeks for a small profit of £7.29 (expected winners = 29). Only backing the qualifiers who finished in the top three on their last run increases the strike rate to 35.5%, with 32 winners from 90 bets a profit of £47.04 to a £1 level stake at SP. JIMI HENDRIX, successful on his handicap debut at Haydock despiet racing on the slowest part of the track, is improving and could reward each way support.
