Brilliant Ribchester The One To Beat
There is a big field of 16 runners engaged for the Royal Ascot curtain-raiser this year but we do have a red hot favourite in the form of the exciting Ribchester.
A classy 3YO, the Godolphin owned horse appears to be an even better animal this season with most believing there is still more to come. Beaten only be Minding in the QE II on Champions Day last season, he returned with a good run in Meydan before winning the Lockinge in taking fashion last time out.
Quick ground shouldn't cause him too many problems and he is clearly the best miler in Britain and Ireland at the moment. As such, he is 8/11 with Bet Victor to win the Queen Anne.
Each Way Plays Available
Ribchester is clearly the one to beat but punters wanting to look for bigger value have plenty of options given the size of the field.
Lightning Spear (5/1) sets a solid standard in terms of opposition following his 2nd place in the Lockinge Stakes and plenty will be backing him to chase the jolly home. He should improve for that first run of the season and a return to a quick surface is also likely to suit, which means it is hard to see him out for the frame.
Mutakayyef (8/1) is a solid Grade 2 horse and should run well, although he has tended to fall short in a deep Grade 1 race, whilst similar comments apply to Deauville (16/1) who tends to be saved for International assignments.
The one we are going to take a chance on is American Patriot for top class handler Todd Pletcher. The USA claimed the race last season with Tepin and although this lad is not in that class, he is clearly a very capable horse in quick conditions.
Last seen winning a Grade 1 at Keeneland, it is hard to translate the form but connections have been bullish since they arrived in the UK and at 25/1 with Ladbrokes, he is a juicy each-way play in an open field.
