    Time Test 12/1
    although he wasn’t disgrace at York last season you’d have to say he needs quick going conditions to be seen at his best. Still shorter for the Queen Anne then what he is for this even though they swerve the Lockinge and head over to Ireland this weekend in a race over 10f and the trainer saying he believes the horse to be a 2000 metre horse.

    Found, New Bay, Postponed, Covert Love, Fascinating Rock, Intilaaq, The Grey Gatsby, A Shin Hikari the list is endless of potential horses that could line up here.

    Plenty of clues could emerge this weekend in the Tattersalls Gold Cup

    A Shin Hikari is now top priced 3/1 and as low as 6/4 for this after he won the Prix d’isfahan at Chantilly today by 10 lengths.

    Couldn’t agree more Nathan mate. I think we need to get on before Time Test runs in the Brigadier Thursday night.

    A Shin Hikari has just looked very impressive today but it wouldn’t be the first time one’s been sent over from that part of the world and flopped. Found and Fascinating Rock are far too short, unless the ground is soft for the latter and a lot of the other’s near the front of the market won’t turn up. I think 12/1 is a really fair price for Time Test at this stage.

    :good:

    I keep hearing that it’s going to be the hottest summer of all time
    There’s a 30 day heat wave predicted, they can water the track all they like as by the time the Prince of Wales starts the going will be ‘bone dry, firm in places’ as opposed to the Queen Anne where Time Test holds an entry which will be the softest of the meeting by being the first race on the first day and heavily watered..(watch it p!ss down all week now. lol)
    I’ve already had a few pence on Time Test but will wait now until after Thursday to maybe top up as he’ll be going there in need of the run and Charlton didn’t sound too optimistic with him giving a few pounds all round.

    Forecast rain all week now.
    Bloody Michael Fish’s fault.

    Trainers baffle the hell out of me sometimes. Masanori Sakaguchi says he’d prefer good ground for A Shin Hikari. :unsure: WHY?

    Was he asleep when the horse demolished the field in France last time in the mud? Has he not looked at the opposition and figured out that neither Found, Time Test or The Grey Gatsby are particularly happy on soft ground, infact none of the field are at their peak on soft ground except maybe My Dream Boat and he was half the length of the track behind A Shin Hikari last time.

    I don’t like being rude but some trainers just talk complete and utter rubbish.

    I found these comments a little bit strange as well, surely soft all over and this horse hacks up, leaving a trail of dust (and mud). He travels so strongly and looked immense in his prep work out earlier on.

    SP of 4/9 looks likely. I can’t wait to see this horse.

    For anyone interested and that has a Bet Victor account, they have a lengthen the odds option for winning distance.

    Currently A Shin Hikari can be backed at 11/4 for a 5 length + win or even 8/1 for 9 lengths +. There is a few more length options available.

    I’m really interested in the 11/4 and will give it a lot of thought tonight.

    Surely the safest bet here is that if A Shin Hikari gets beat, it will be the jockey’s fault?

    Thanks for the good crack. Time for me to move on. Be lucky.

    Hi guys this is my first post on here apart from my RA competition picks. I only found this site by chance but so glad I did as I think it’s a great site. Anyhow this Japanese horse looks to be the nap of the meeting imo and if running half as good as in France last time out should still win going away.

    One horse race imo. The winning distance, as mentioned by Chivers, seems the only decent betting proposition here.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing what A Shin Hikari does today. The Japanese have always been active with their runners in the big European races and they deserve a Royal Ascot win. Hopefully they’ll finally take the coveted Arc one day too.

    Well, he’s been known to bomb out in some races and that’s exactly what’s happened today. That risk factor was always there.

    Fair play to Mike (The Blues Brother), who cast doubt on ASH dues to his failure to record a good time.

    Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/

    Hands up who picked this result? I find it hard to believe My Dream Boat will ever win another group 1. Something has to wrong with the favourite. Found ran well again but she usually finds one too good and she did again.
