It’s the calm before the Royal Ascot Storm, but Tom Stanley and Adele Mulrennan are bullish on their selections this weekend.
Eight races on ITV this Saturday, and Adele Mulrennan and I take you through them all. A low-key weekend before Royal Ascot, but some decent betting heats nonetheless.
5f Handicap (13:40 Chester)
No bet for me here but Adele thinks Virginia Plane is overpriced at 6.5 at the time of recording and is very complimentary about rider James Sullivan.
- Tom – no bet
- Adele – Virginia Plane
Queen Mother’s Cup (14:00 York)
A smaller field than you’d expect for this race. Adele thinks two at big prices are worth supporting whilst I’m a little more team obvious with Arctic Fox
- Tom – Arctic Fox
- Adele – Sameem / Flymetotthestars
Scurry Stakes (14:15 Sandown)
Both keen on the favourite here who bumped into a good horse last time. I’ll also chance Mishal Star win and place.
- Tom – Atalis Bay / Mishal Star
- Adele – Atalis Bay
7f Handicap (14:35 York)
Adele’s best bet lines up here at 6.0 at the time of recording. I’m with Golden Apollo who has the talented Ella McCain on board.
- Tom – Golden Apollo
- Adele – Gifted Ruler BEST BET

1m Handicap (14:50 Sandown)
A trappy little contest but I do think the Crisford horse is very well treated. Adele thinks Don’t Tell Claire should be backed in the place market.
- Tom – Latest Generation
- Adele – Don’t Tell Claire place
Grand Cup (15:05 York)
Was going to leave this alone but the selection is a good horse and I thought he had a better chance than his odds suggest. Small stakes and so too for Adele with Ranch Hand.
- Tom – Roberto Escobarr
- Adele – Ranch Hand
1m 4f Handicap (15:20 Chester)
A tricky race but both of us going for a Mark Johnston horse. I’m with the outsider of the field whilst Adele fancies his second string. Both win and place.
- Tom – Glen Again
- Adele – Love Is Golden
Sprint Handicap (15:40 York)
Good betting race and a couple going up here at prices. My best bet lines up having finished second in a race last time which looks like strong form.
- Tom – Jadwal BEST BET / Bickerstaffe
- Adele – Showalong / Skyrunner
