Royal Ascot 3.05
Royal Ascot 3.05 2 Ayrad - each way @ 16/1 (odds to 4th / SkyBet odds to 5th)This is a race that may not have quite the strength in depth that appears at first sight,
the one that I was continually drawn to is AYRAD. We have to accept it returns after a break but it has both
run well fresh in the past, and I feel specifically been aimed at this race. They have booked Ryan Moore,
can only presume he has had the choice of three or four here, so that is very significant, the yard had a
winner here earlier in the week, all of the string are running well and Charlton is a guy who has always
focussed on quality over quantity, gives his horses time and always targets mid summer. The horse drops
a bit in grade here and provided he is fit enough he should out run his very compelling odds.
