The much awaited day has now arrived. Frankel is bound to rack up his 11th consecutive win to open the Royal meeting and start the first leg of the double with Black Caviar, which was amazing qouted at evens yesterday by the magic sign.
The value in the Queen Anne is the each way certainty in the form of Strong Suit at about 10/1 with Premio Loco being attractive each way value at 50/1 too.
Crockford’s Dead Cert – Power (St James’s Palace 3.45)
After his Irish Guineas win he should be a certainty to power away from his rivals again today. The only interesting challenge may come from the supplemented Gabrial who looks good each way value too at around 16/1.
Crockford’s Whisper – Sole Power (King’s Stand 3.05)
If Black Caviar is really as good as the hype Ortensia should be a main contender for this sprint, ut Crockford hears good things about this Irish raider’s chances after running more favoured horses close this season already. At 8/1 there could be some very good each way value here.
