    Royal Ascot 2019

    Deserves its own thread.

    I'd like to see Decrypt in the St James Palace but it might not happen.

    Petrus has been a much improved horse this season after the gelding operation and 20/1 or thereabouts looks tempting in The Royal Hunt Cup.

    Thoughts:

    Le Brivido and Laurens ran better than the bare result in the Lockinge and are worth a dutch in the Queen Anne

    Can't split Battaash and Blue Point in the KS. Expect the former to maybe be held onto for longer this year.

    Sea of Class is the worst priced horse of the meeting. First time out, 10f and a short straight. Can't have. Magical looks logical as Waldgeist would be a doubtful runner on fast ground.

    Tempted by I Can Fly in the Duke of Cambridge but obviously she could rock up in the QA.

    I'm prepared to forgive Calyx his poor run at Haydock. Mainly because it's Haydock.

    Kew Gardens is too big for the Hardwicke but will he run?

    Will dutch The Tin Man and City Light in the Diamond Jubilee

    Well, like me, someone at The Racing Post fancies Decrypt for The St James Palace.

    https://www.racingpost.com/news/roya...lydoyle/384166

    Whether this means he's more likely to run at Royal Ascot, I've no idea.

    Looks as if he's been taken out of the Ballychorus, (the Group 3 over 7F at Leopardstown next week).

    Decrypt scratched from the St James Palace according to The Racing Post entries page, but still quoted by the major bookmakers on oddschecker. Someone is in the wrong!

    Decrypt is still entered -RP has decided to declare him a non runner.

    Decrypt taken out.

    A horse/hurdler myself and others talked about for a big hurdle last season, called Not Never, is entered in the Ascot Stakes on Tuesday.

    Currently best priced 20/1.

    5 days of quality racing, likely Summer ground. and the bonus is proper sectionals to analyse the form going foward - thanks to ATR.
    Already taken 6/1 Mustashry, which has the look of an opening day banker.

    Yep. Interesting to see how the Irish 2000 Guineas form works out, with the 1st, 2nd and 4th reopposing.

    Gary Moore's Not Never is my main fancy on Day One in the Ascot Stakes Handicap.

    Apparently, we get to see every race live on ITV too, which is much more than we got from the curmugeonly RTV at Cheltenham.
    More power to your elbow, ATR.

    What are we to make of the likely going at Ascot?

    They've been saying soft generally but now they're saying good-to-soft with rain forecast.

    The going-stick readings have been suggesting much firmer than that. The readings up until yesterday were in the mid-high 7s and today they're up to 8.4 in the straight. That would be interpreted as firm ground anywhere else.

    And over at Metcheck, they're saying there won't really be much in the way of rain until the second half of Tuesday afternoon and less then 1mm per day until friday and none again on Saturday.
