Ulysses The Each Way Play In Exciting King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes Betting

Saturday 29th July 2017, 3.35pm - King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (Ascot)

The King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot is always one of the high points of the flat racing summer, and once again we can expect a packed crowd for one of the biggest Group 1 races on the calendar. It really is a clash of the ages as some of the best older middle distance horse taking one one or two from the classic generation over 1m4f.

  • Aidan O'Brien and Sir Michael Stoute have trained the winner of this race ten times between them

Enable Set To Start A Hot Favourite For John Gosden

The race has received a significant boost this week with the news that Enable will take her chance for John Gosden, and the superstar filly is now sure to go off as the one to beat. The 3YO has emerged as the star of the classic generation so far this summer with scorching wins in the Epsom and Irish versions of the Oaks, and it is hard not to be excited by her.

Her win at the Curragh last time out was perhaps the most impressive of the season so far, and she deserves her chance against the boys.

This will of course be a much tougher assignment but she is by a King George winner in Nathaniel, and with a stone in her favour, it is hard to back against her, even at 5/4 with Betfair.

Major Threats?

Enable is clearly the right favourite but she is going to be too short for some, and there are some alternatives to consider.

Highland Reel won the King George last year and since then has done very little wrong for Aidan O'Brien. He has won the Coronation Cup and the Prince Of Wales's Stakes on his last two starts, and he is rightly considered the best older middle distance horse in the UK and Ireland as a result.

Whether he can give a horse such as Enable a stone is another matter though, especially with the ground set to be softer than ideal, and with that in mind he is now out to 5/1 with Paddy Power.

O'Brien also has Idaho (10/1) in the field, and he should run well having won the Hardwicke over course and distance last time out, although this is a big step up and he will need to show more than he has done before. Jack Hobbs is classy on his best day and will enjoy any cut in the ground but he has proven inconsistent at times, and hard to fancy with any conviction.

Sir Michael Stoute has won this race six times and he will be hopeful of number seven with Ulysses (9/1) set to take his chance. His best piece of form came on his last start when winning the Eclipse down at 1m2f, and he has form to find with Highland Reel from Royal Ascot, but he is clearly improving and will tempt each-way punters as a result.

Conclusion

Enable is rightly the favourite and with a stone in her favour it really is hard to see her being beaten, as long as the race hasn't come too soon for her. Whether punters want to back her at close to odds-on is another matter though as she steps up in class, which means Ulysses is the each way play as he continues to improve for a trainer who has a great record in this race.
