Royal Ascot tips for the opening race of day 3, the Norfolk Stakes which is due off at 2.30pm on Thursday 18th June.
We move into day 3 of Royal Ascot 2015 and kick-off with the Norfolk Stakes, after a couple of shocks on Wednesday’s card we are looking for the best horse racing tips on Ascot’s card.
Norfolk Stakes Betting Tips
The Group 2 Norfolk Stakes gets Thursday’s card underway, run over 5f the race looks to be a toss-up between the two Hannon runners. King of Rooks is currently odds on favourite following an encouraging debut when third over course and distance. He followed that up with two impressive displays at Newbury and Sandown, one just as impressive as the other including when beating Tuesdays Coventry Stakes winner Buratino. If the Acclamation colt can continue his improvement he looks set to be the one to beat, with Frankie Dettori taking the ride.
Stable companion LOG OUT ISLAND, the Godolphin runner was also a very impressive winner last time out, again having the Coventry Stakes winner behind him. He won over course and distance first time out and is entitled to improve for the run. William Buick gets the leg up here, and although both are improving types, the Godolphin charge may just have some more improvement in him.
Richard Hannon is noted to have said that he is struggling to separate the two runners in terms of ability, both carry high hopes for two powerhouses of owners and I’ve a feeling that Goldophin may come out on top with Log Out Island following on from a very impressive debut.
