It is the first day of the Qipco King George Weekend at Ascot on Friday. I am having a bet in the Listed Acorn Insurance British EBF Valiant Stakes over the mile due off at 3.35.
The Queen (gawd bless her) has a runner in the shape of the 3yo filly Magnetic Charm trained down at Somerville Lodge stables by William Haggas. I tipped her on here when she won a Listed heat at York on her seasonal debut back in May. She followed that up with a valiant second place in the Sandringham Stakes off top-weight at the Royal meeting. Still lightly raced there is likely more to come yet, Ryan Moore gets the leg-up and though short at 5-4 she is the one for me.
