With the slightly wet weather that Ascot has been experiencing, the going at the Ascot racecourse has changed somewhat from what it was on day one, and with that in mind I have put together my best bets and top tips for day three of the Royal Ascot meeting below.
Keep in mind too that for some added value betting on any of the following horses, you will be best advised to make use of the best odds guarantees that bookies such as our top rated Coral and Betfred betting sites are offering their customers today that are prepared to bet nice and early.
Many punters tend to avoid betting on the very first race of any horse race meeting, but I do think it is going to be worth backing Sunday Sovereign in the 14:30 race today, for that is a stand out horse with plenty of good form behind it and with odds of 5/2 that may just be a horse that puts you in profit right from the get go.
Many punters are going to be perming several horses together in doubles, trebles and even accumulators today, and one horse I feel is certainly worth including in such bets is running in the 15:05 race, and that horse that is currently 8/1 or there or thereabouts is King Ottokar’s.
All Eyes will be on Star Catcher
Hopefully my first two tips will win today at Royal Ascot, however the main aim of any punter backing horses is to try and win as much as they possibly can do, so on my next tip I am going for a horse that has some excellent odds attached to it right now.
That horse is running in the 15:40 race at Royal Ascot and it’s called Star Catcher and having cast my eye over several bookies betting markets on that 15:40 race, I have seen it being touted at big odds of 9/1.
Other Horses Worth Backing Today
For those of you that are planning some multiple type bets today, then one banker that should be on each of them that you do decide to place is Stradivarius that is running in the 16:20 race however that horse is expected to win with great ease and that fact is reflected in its current 5/4 odds which may just get much shorter as the starting time of that race approaches.
I have also picked out a horse that is being touted at much higher and much more appealing odds today and that horse will be lining up and taking its chances on the 17:00 Royal Ascot race today and its name is Migration that should go off at a starting price of around the 11/1 mark.
In fact, the is another 11/1 shot that I really do like the look of racing today at the Royal Ascot race meeting and that horse is Fox Premier who will be involved in the 17:35 Ascot race, just make sure that you do shop around to try and bag the highest odd possible on it if you do fancy backing it.
