KEY FACTORS

  • This is the big race of the day as the Class 1 field battle it out for the £34k prize on offer for the winner at Ascot with half of the field having already won at this class level previously (Anna Nerium, Main Edition, Look Around and Magnetic Charm).
  • There are plenty of chances throughout the field as six of the eight entries have managed a win over this distance, with Look Around and Anna Nerium the only exceptions.
  • Big-priced winners have gone on to win this race in two of the last three meetings with a 16/1 winner in 2016 followed by an 8/1 shot in 2017 whilst last year’s winner was 4/1 which could mean a short-priced winner if that trend continues.

BETTING ANALYSIS

Magnetic Charm is a short price but rightfully so and should not be overlooked here. She is the highest-rated horse in the race but will run here as the joint-bottom weight and can kick-on following recent improvements to claim another win in this class.

BETTING TIP: MAGNETIC CHARM (TO WIN)
