2.30 Ascot – Queen Anne Stakes
The Race Of The Day is based on the most valuable race from Today’s Horse Racing Meetings and we deliver Horse Racing Tips from each blogger to see if we can come to an agreement on a selection. The statistics for today’s Race Of The Day can be seen below, apart from Overall, Month and Day all data supplied is based on either flat or jumps racing depending on the daily race, all odds are based on SP. View Monthly Breakdown Stats.
We have a new selection process for our bloggers, instead of relying on someone to add the selections we now have an automatic process in which when a blogger has a selection he/she can now add it to the post themselves which means you get the selections as they are ready, this means that the post is now put up without any selections in order for it to be available for the bloggers to add them.
Also because there is not always someone around to edit the post with the selections we will now leave this up to you to work out, it is simple enough, when the stated closing time has passed then you can decided whether there is a bet or not, each runner will have the number of selections next to it and for each pick it is clear then that is a 1pt stake, so a runner with 3 picks and then two runners with 1 pick apiece would be a 2pt win, if there is not outright pick then it is deemed a No Bet. We advised all bets of £10 per tip clear, so a 2pt win would be a £20 win.

Zipster – Verrazano (1 Picks)
I just cannot touch Toronado today, the Hannon’s both Snr and Jnr have not had a winner from a runner returning from a 300+ day break since King Of Jazz back in April of 2011, that’s 25 runners since without a winner and only 4 of those have made the first 3 so I shall be opposing him today.
The O’Brien yard seem to be coming into a bit of form and it’s their runner Verrazano who is the pick today, third behind Olympic Glory and Tullius when last seen in the Lockinge at Newbury, he has four graded successes to his name from his days of racing in the states which includes a couple of G1 wins and although all of those came on the dirt tracks his first run on the turf lto was promising.
The yard are 3-6 for runners in this race who have gone off between 3/1 and 15/2 so they are no strangers to winners here and Joseph rode Declaration Of War to success in the race last year so but me they can produce another winner and I have Soft Falling Rain down as a the main threat with Toronado struggling.
jaydubs – Toronado (1 Picks)
Hard to see past Hannon’s runner here. Hannon has been talking it up all week and seems very bullish about it. Its easy to see why with it pretty much dominating the mile over the last 2 years but for a poor run in the 2000 Guineas. It didn’t see out 10f lto at York but back down to a mile today will see the best of it. Won the Craven on reappearance last year so the lay off will not be a problem.
Gecko – Soft Falling Rain (1 Picks)
With the ground being good then this selection has a great chance of toppling the fav for me – has shown decent form and has posted some good results… the trip is fine and with the ideal ground, this 5 yr old from the De Kock stable, with Hanagan on board, can beat the plucky Verrazano with Toronado unlikely to be on top form after a long break
