With the ground at Ascot turning soft, its betting with that firmly in mind.  A lot of the big races are contested by horses that ran at the ‘Arc’ meeting two weeks ago, and I think quite a few will run today below form, so I am backing one that has had a light season so far.

Todays Free tip is as follows:

Horse: Duretto

Time: 1.25 Ascot

Current odds: 10/1 EW

This horse bolted in last time, it was a lot easier race but he won like a progressive horse.  The ground will be no concern, he should stay the trip and his jockey won on him last time at Chester, he ticks a lot of boxes and is a bit of value.  I am backing him each way as    he has a few pounds to find with some of his rivals.  Order Of St George is the favourite, and if he runs to his best will be very tough to beat, he ran well in the ‘Arc’ and is top rated in the race, he has a had a few tough races this  season and I am thinking (and hoping) he may be a bit below peak, although he is trained by a genius !
