Spending a little bit of time planning your up and coming betting activities, especially on horse racing, is going to be advisable, much more so right now due to the fact that the Royal Ascot race meeting is just around the corner.
In fact, day one of that much awaited race meeting is going to take some working out regarding what you bet on, as there are some top class horses taking part in each race, and the early betting markets often give you an indication of where the smart money is being placed.
With that in mind let me rattle through all seven of the first day races, and let you know just which horses are having their odds shortened due to the amount of money currently being placed on them.
Take for example the Queen Anne Stakes race, the two horses that are the punters friends at the minutes, and the bookies nightmare are Rhododendron at 11/4 and Benbatl at 5/1, so keep that in mind if you plan on trying to start the meeting on a winning note!
You are probably not going to get very rich if one of the two favourites in the Coventry Stakes wins, for their respective odds are not that high, and the two horses to concentrate on are Sergei Prokofiev at 2/1 and Calyx at 5/2!
St James Palace Stakes
The St James Palace Stakes could go to any of the horses taking part in it as they do all have their own outstanding qualities; however with Without Parole at 11/4 and Romanised at 5/1 one of those two could just be the winning one
Two horses are going to take some pegging back in the Kings Stand Stake and if I was you I would look no further than both Lady Aurelia at 2/1 and Battaash at 5/2, as I am confident one of those two horses will win this race and quite easily too.
The Ascot Stakes should be a good race to watch and it is Stratum at 7/2 who is currently taking the most money on the early betting markets but not far behind that horse is Coeur De Lion who does offer much better value at 7/1!
The get out race on day one of the Royal Ascot meeting is of course the Wolferton Stakes, and one thing that you will be rewarded with if you do fancy betting on any runners on the ante post and early prices betting markets are some very high odds currently.
Take for example Laraaib that horses does have an amazing chance of winning this race at 11/2 but I would not rule out Mirage Dancer of putting in a good display of flat racing and that horse is currently readily available at plenty of betting sites at odds of 6/1!
