A nice winner yesterday with Kyprios winning the Ascot Gold Cup under Ryan Moore. Hopefully, some of you got on and some of you might have done a forecast with my honourable mention Mojo Star who I said would run well at big odds. I'm not stupid and I know that Stradivarius would've won yesterday if he got a clear run and Frankie didn't make a total mess of it. Frankie's had a mare this week and it could be controversial, but is he past his best? Let me know in the comments on whether you think Frankie should retire at the end of the season, or do you think he should carry on.

Ascot 2:30

Runner Jacket Trainer: K R Burke

Jockey: Daniel Tudhope

Form: 1

An open Albany Stakes, like it normally is every year, but that hasn't stopped me from having a bet in this. CATHY COME HOME surely comes into this with a nice EW chance based on the fact that she's currently in one of the best stables for 2yo's this season, so they will know where she's at and how she compares to the rest of them and the fact she was very well supported on debut, which was backed up by a smart performance.

Karl Burke has arguably the best 2yo in England so far with Dramatised, so he will be able to judge how good his other juveniles are. In the Racing Post, he has been quoted saying, “She's working really well and she's probably overpriced, which I can understand going from a Musselburgh maiden to a Royal Ascot race. She's a smart filly and on her home work she's not a million miles behind Dramatised”. Based on those comments, I think she is definitely worth a small EW play in this. If those comments are true, she has a very nice chance of winning this, as I don't think it's got the quality of some of the other 2yo's races.

It's hard to weigh up the form of the rest of them, but I think she is a good EW pick and with extra places on offer she's worth a go.

Ascot 3:05

Runner Jacket Trainer: M D O'Callaghan

Jockey: Leigh Roche

Form: 3510-1

On paper, the Commonwealth Cup looks like a minefield, but as I've delved into the form I don't think I like the chances of the UK horses other than Perfect Power, who deserves to be favourite, but I've still got question marks about him.

A lot of the form that punters will be getting stuck into for this is the Sandy Lane which took place at Haydock, won by El Caballo, which had Flaming Rib, Go Bears Go and Wings Of War in behind. The more I look at that piece of form I think it's not that strong in reality and if one of those came out and won this it would show how weak the 3yo sprinters are.

The one which caught my eye was the Irish raider, TWILIGHT JET. Michael O'Callaghan is a great trainer and does well with the small operation that he has, and normally has a few each year which run very well at Royal Ascot. Crispy Cat was an unlucky loser yesterday in the opener where the winner cut Crispy Cat up and left that horse with no chance, but it goes to show that he does bring over some live chances in these kind of races.

Twilight Jet is the highest-rated 3yo sprinter in Ireland on the back of his impressive win at Naas in the Group 3 in the middle of May. That run was very impressive where he won by 3L beating an Aidan O'Brien 6/5F into second place. That run produced an RPR of 117 which was higher than when Sioux Nation won it back in 2018 and was only 4 lower than when Caravaggio won it back in 2017, so he's in some good company with that victory. He'd have to have improved from 2 to 3 to win this as he was behind the likes of Perfect Power last season, but I think he has matured and gotten better. He stays this trip extremely well, seems to handle the conditions nice enough and looks primed for a big run.

The trainer is full of confidence and has said, “He's improved a bit from Naas and if he can put up a similar performance I think whatever beats him will win. I think he'll run a huge race”.

Ascot 3:40

Runner Jacket Trainer: George Baker

Jockey: Pat Cosgrave

Form: 219-11

I'm honestly very surprised to see odds of 16/1 floating around for CEMHAAN, as I thought every man and his dog would be backing him for this race as he arrives on a double and going for the hattrick.

A mark of 92 is no gimmick for a 5yo, but he is in the form of his life and the recent 5lb rise in the weights can be destroyed if he continues his upward trajectory. He is a strange horse as he does a lot wrong in his races like running keenly and carrying his head quite high, but you can't doubt his ability and his willingness to win.

The form he has looks strong with the runner-up from the Salisbury race going on to win twice since, as well as the fourth who has won 3x since and has improved from a 79-rated horse to a 97-rated animal. The fifth in that race has recently just won as well, so the form is starting to look ridiculously red-hot. From his most recent race, the 3rd has since won at Chester on the weekend just gone, with the 5th winning next time out as well.

This is obviously a very competitive race, but I'm all over this lad and it's great to see some nice odds available on the one you like a lot, as normally other tipsters would've crashed the prices down and you're backing a horse which is a lot smaller than ideal.

Ascot 5:00

Runner Jacket Trainer: Charlie Fellowes

Jockey: Hayley Turner

Form: 42-31

Some of you maybe remember when I tipped up Onassis to win this race back in 2020 when I was a tipster for the big meetings, supporting Thommo. She won that year at odds of 33/1 and the reason why I backed her, as well as having a nice pedigree and should've been better than her handicap mark, was the fact that Charlie Fellowes and Hayley Turner combined in the year before to win this exact race. They didn't have a runner in the 2021 renewal of this race, but they're back again this year and back with another very unexposed horse who looks tailor-made for this assignment.

Unfortunately for me, the bookies and punters have been wiser this year and FRESH HOPE is currently a 6/1 shot which is shorter than I was hoping for, but I can see why. This filly has a nice profile and the run at Doncaster last time out looks like she could be ahead of her handicap mark of 82. Jamie Spencer sneaked her into contention and didn't have to get too serious on her, and she probably won better than the winning margins would suggest. This is Charlie's race at Royal Ascot, and I put him in the same light as Dan Skelton and the County Hurdle as you know for a fact whenever they have a runner in that race he's going to be going close and is worth a few quid. The same applies to the Sandringham for Charlie, and he would've had this filly in his mind for this race for some time now and he got a run under her belt to get into this, as he was probably worried she might not get in off a mark of 78 (she would've) but it shows good planning to me and shows this has been the plan for some time.

    Frankie shouldn’t retire, he’s had a poor week but he is box office and good for the sport and it would be a duller sport without him, watching itv interviewing punters who were there just for the occasion and not the racing in the betting ring, they mostly said they were backing Frankie, could have been riding a beach pony for all they knew.
    How many other jockeys have personality, oisin Murphy has but is banned and listening to the likes of Ryan interesting Moore doesn’t invigorate me.
    Frankie has been written off before, Especially after his ban but has come back better than before since.
    The likes of gosden and aiden o brien wouldn’t employ him if they thought he was finished.
    He reminds me of a striker in football who has a goal drought and he is apparently finished then scores and more goals follow.
    Frankie is still dining at the top table for me, maybe he needs a marquee horse going forward like another enable or a Stradivarius type going forward to stir his juices 🏇

      Good double last night but 0/4 in Yankee and Big Bobby didn’t like the mud AGAIN,think owners would just scratch the frickin horse?

      2 from tracker and Bolden from GYTO that should been on my tracker,backed it last time they tipped it and there was a s slight worry about the lay off but hosed it!

      Trixie for tonight…

      Belmont- R1…Contemporary Art. 6/5(nice debut win flying home once penny dropped,Prat stays on board over extra distance)
      Santa Anita- R2…Violent Runner. 5/2(debut in tough race then out back to this level and won by 9L slightly tougher race but basically same grade)
      R9…Bolden. 11/10 (overcame near 2 years off to win nicely and lot more to come and already sets standard as they say)

      Big gap between races so might try find a 4th or 5th later for small bets in between or a Yankee or Canadian but dems the recommendations ⬆️

  6. Rizzel Tips 1 week ago

    I didn’t suggest that he should retire, I asked the question whether you think he should or not, due to the amount of people questioning it over social media this week.

    Personally I do think he is past his best, but could easily go on for a few more years.

    In terms of him being a personality, he absolutely is. But he plays up to the camera, and seems like two different people to me when in front of a camera and when off the camera.

    For me, I’d have Ryan Moore on a horse over him. It’s personal preference and I’m sure that most people would prefer Frankie. This is more of a direct reply to the plug, rather than comparing jockeys.

    It’s good to have interaction in the chat and see people’s opinions on things. Don’t take it out on me 😂

    • elvis parsley 1 week ago

      Rizzle Eh ?
      How do you know what Frankie is like off camera ?. Unless you are in his entourage.

      It’s what the general public see and hear in front of the camera that will bring new people into the racecourses.

      Ryan Moore top jockey he is but his personality won’t bring in new punters.

      Like I said earlier look at the trainer’s that hire him, they would not be ploughing thousands of pounds into this game just to put a washed up camera poser on would they and I’m sure they know more about Frankie’s current capabilities more than you or I.

      Yesterday was a bad ride in Stradivarius yes, didn’t hear much said about the ride on Westover in the Derby for one example, he would in my opinion have won given a better ride but because the queen’s luvvie stoute trained the winner they were all drooling over desert crown.
      How many suggested Rob Hornby should quit after that ride !
      Is he over the hill?

      Folk in sport are too quick to jump on certain band wagons.
      Harry Kane a prime example, always starts a season slowly, press start saying he’s “gone, over the hill etc’ then always ends up the season high on the scoring charts.

      3
    • Rizzel Tips 1 week ago

      There’s been plenty of people who have recorded him at the races without him realising and he has a face like a slapped arse and sounds very arrogant.

      This doesn’t need to turn into an argument.

  7. cairnzy1878 1 week ago

    As they say, sometimes you are only as good as the horse you’ve got beneath you but you can’t continue to butcher the life out of rides of top rated horses in races worth a fortune.

    The ride on my old time favourite Strad was laughable. He had him on the inside rail from 2/3furlong in. He had an entire 2 miles to sort his positioning out and he balls’d it up.

    “Frankie is glancing across to angle out here” was the repeated shouts of the commentary. Then do it already? To leave that horse in last place and to run on and take 3rd is robbery for punters. The staying division is weak and the best horse in the race lost when in reality should of smashed that field and won by 2/3 lengths.

    I’m with Rizz, I have Ryan Moore on board ahead of Frankie every day of the week.

    The question is he finished? I think he’s past his best for sure. You can’t compare football with racing either it’s a completely different sport. I agree with the argument he’s good for the sport and television side of things but if I wanted to have a laugh I’d stick on Ricky Gervais and watch the office for 6 hours.

    It’s not a laugh when there’s money on the table and he’s riding like that consistently. The ride on Reach For The Moon wasn’t much better but that’s another argument for another day.

    Good luck today everyone.

    Got to agree with rizz and cairnzy i would have ryan moore everytime over dettori.

    Saying that I bet Stradivarius yesterday as i thought he had the class to win .But Moore completely out rode Dettori holding him in when neccassary timing the run perfect basically swap the jockeys over and Stradivarius would have won for me .

    All about opinions but Moore did it again next race on Thesis perfect timing again Dettori to late with his run.

    Dettori great jockey but on the day Moore was total class.

    Good luck everyone

  9. smoothsailor 1 week ago

    Dettori still has some good days in him yet I reckon. Yesterday wasn’t his finest hour. Stradivarius is now 8 and has always been a horse who can’t be produced too soon or held up too far back, even more so now.
    The horse really needs an uninterrupted clear passage in order to have the best chance of victory given his advancing years. That didn’t happen yesterday and I agree, Frankie has to take a portion of the blame for that. I also recall Gosden not being too impressed with his ride on Palace Pier in the QEII last season (vs Baaeed).
    I totally agree with Frankie playing up to the camera. I find it a bit annoying at times but I realise he is the face of racing and there is an expectation on him to be like this (which was why i think his drug ban was not more severe and almost brushed under the carpet).

    Frankie is basically semi retired now anyway hes made a good few mistakes this season is it bad judgement or lack of riding or just lots a bad luck probably a bit of all three Johnny G seems now to be criticising him more & more goes back to Strad last year it certainly cant go on 1 way or another.
    He has always been a stylish rider and not the strongest in a finish now put him up against some1 like Tom Marquand and he looks 80 year old in a finish.
    But as others have said racing needs his personality in front of the cameras.
