Unibet Racing’s Will Petit brings us their biggest market movers and ones to watch from Thursday’s racing action.
Four market movers at Royal Ascot today plus news of our biggest losers on the card…
7/2 from 9/2
FOX CHAIRMAN got absolutely no run at Chester before flying home behind Circus Maximus, who he perhaps would have beaten, and following Circus Maximus’ Group 1 win earlier in the week, punters have come for Balding’s charge today. A well backed favourite with every chance!
5/1 from 13/2
DEE EX BEE is the mover on the day in the Ascot Gold Cup, with strong each-way support for Mark Johnston’s gritty charge. He remains unexposed as a Stayer and he’s the choice of punters looking to oppose favourite Stradivarius. It looks a mouthwatering race!
8/1 from 12/1
KING ADEMAR looks like the type of horse who will be suited by a strong pace over a straight mile and those who have read Richard Hannon’s Unibet blogs will know the regard with which he holds Ouzo, who beat King Ademar las time out. Headgear goes on today, which is a further plus, and stall 16 gives in form jockey Oisin Murphy all the options! Even better, we pay TWO EXTRA PLACES on the race!
9/2 from 13/2
Mark Johnston won this race last year with a similar type so it perhaps should come as no surprise that SIR RON PRIESTLY is now vying for favouritism with Sinjaari, whilst Constantinople is noticeably weak. Johnston’s 3yo has won with any amount in hand and is bound to go well, probably from the front and with a crucial clear run, this afternoon.
BEST BACKED ON THE CARD
STRADIVARIUS. The traders want to see this beat, and report that FLEETING isn’t far behind in terms of liabilities!
