Best bet for the horse racing at Ascot Friday 26th July the Qipco King George Weekend

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.

Be lucky
