Royal Ascot kicks off @ 10:30pm tonight AEST time with the running of the Queen Anne Stakes. It’s in the Queen Anne where my best bet of day 1 of the carnival comes up.

DAY 1 BEST BET

RACE 1-1 ABLE FRIEND 

$4.00

The world’s equal highest rated horse carrying the world’s best jockey. That’s a winning formula. He’s had 9 goes at the mile for 8 wins and a placing. Solow will provide stiff opposition no doubt but given the odds (Solow $2.6, Able Friend $4) and the fact it’s a mile race not 1800m+ – I’ve made the Australian bred, Hong Kong raced gelding my best on the opening day. I’m going for him to get over the top of Solow & Night of Thunder. 

I could have made it Gleneagles in the St James’s Palace Stakes, because he will JUST WIN! But I’ve decided to go for the value as he’s only showing $1.65. Include Gleneagles in any and all multi’s though!
