    Royal Ascot

    I am sweet on Turjomaan in the Queen Anne stakes. He is my best bet of the day at a good price too. He has only been beaten once against a more experienced horse in Duke Of Hazzard at the end of the last season. He has won twice first time out although one of those was a disqualification.

    Basically, on the trajectory or balance of his form he should improve a lot from three to four years old. So Turjomaan is a major player and real danger to all on the first day of Royal Ascot at about 16/1.

    I'm excited to see 6 extra hcaps this year to get to grips with and I'm doing

    [B]zhui feng in the silver hunt cup at 25/1.getting on a bit but is now well hcapped off 94 and had a pipe opener last week.
    Won it in 2017 off 100 and went up to 108.

    Baltic Baron 25/1 for the hunt cup.ought to have won the goodwood golden mile last year but for getting boxed in.
    Runs off the same mark.zhui feng ran off 101 in that race and vale of kent has 7lb more and what's the story is 8lb higher.

    Just needs some luck with the draw.

    TURJOMAAN: Disappointing professionally and financially that he didn’t win the Thoroughbred Stakes at Glorious Goodwood! I think he picked up a bit better than Crowley expected there and as such made his run a bit too early, but on natural ability he’s a top-level horse and Roger has openly said he thinks he’s very good. He’s sharp but will get a mile.
    RacingPost 02/06/20 He's a really good horse, very talented, but has been unfortunate with injuries. However, we're very happy with him at the moment and might just take him straight to Ascot for the Queen Anne Stakes. He's a great big galloping horse and a conventional track like Ascot should be right up his street. He loves fast ground.

    Luckyme, do you have any quotes from Andrew Balding about Diocletian? He got his head in front at the end of last season at Chester. I reckon he will be ready to rock and roll off his new rating of 96 in the Ascot stakes. He wears a hood for the first time which I assume will aid his cause.

    Here ya go Marb, you will get his blog for Ascot here tomorrow at 5.00pm

    https://blog.betway.com/horse-racing/



    Diocletian (5YO)

    We learned so much about him last year and think we’ve found the key to getting the best out of him. He’s not had much racing for a five-year-old, but I think that will help him this season.

    He absolutely bolted up at Chester last September. We were aiming for the November Handicap at Doncaster with him after that but then it got abandoned. We decided we’d keep him for an assault at the Chester Cup this term and the same has happened to that.

    He’s versatile trip-wise, so we’ll campaign him around staying handicaps, and he’ll be held up in his races as he seems to really enjoy being ridden that way.


    some really good stuff here....https://bet-master.freeforums.net/th...rs-flat?page=1

    Good stuff.

    I've just had a sneaky forty quid on the nose on him with Boylesports. I tryed to put 100 on but max stakes was 40 on Diotecian.

    Anyone have a clue about jockey bookings in the first race tomorrow? Sheikh Hamdan has 4 entrants and his retained jockey rides Motakhayyel . Now, he may have been burning up the Hannon gallops, but his 16/1 tag hardly reflects that view.
    Reason I ask is, I reckon Daarik (9/2 fav) is a piece better than his rating, and Frankie has somehow wangled his way into the saddle?

    If you were to just look at 2 races all week, what would they be?
    Some people say he’s the best since Arkle and that’s certainly true when you look at what he’s done
