$30 Win Port Of Jeddah R2 @ $4.6 (TAB)
Heavy 10 is the unknown, but if he does handle it, Scrooge looks the good thing of the day. Debuted on a Soft 7 at Wagga where he was dragged back to near last from the wide gate and that pretty much sealed his fate, but loved the way he found the line in defeat behind Fabulous Fran, running a close up third. The only other winning chance IMO is Port Of Jeddah for Tash Burleigh and that filly does bring reasonable form, so back the two and can’t go wrong.
Royal Ascot Overview:
I think Accidental Agent can win the Queen Anne again. Got the job done last year at $30+ and looks to have returned in good order if his Newbury run is any guide, sitting back and finding the line well behind Mustashry. Is second up compared to last year where he was third up into the race, so brings fresher legs for the 2019 edition and his form at the track is good. Arizona does look the one to beat but in terms of a bet in the Coventry, is getting a bit short now so the $3.50 is about right. Has had two career outings for Aidan O’Brien, both at the Curragh. Solid enough on debut when second before racing over 1200m there just under a month ago and he absolutely bolted in, winning by eight lengths and running decent time. In the right stable and clearly looks above average. If there is a negative for Blue Point, it will be barrier one…outside that, I don’t see how they beat him. His Meydan prep was stunning, taking all before him, including the Al Quoz in outstanding fashion. He was oh so impressive in winning this race last year and appears to be a better horse 12 months on. I’m sure Doyle will find the right path and I think only bad luck will beat him.
