Royal Ascot Trainers
Punters wanting to place a Royal Ascot bet have many different avenues to explore in the hope of securing a winner. One option is to pick a respected trainer and make a beeline towards their horses in the Royal Ascot odds. There are many trainers sure to have at least one winner at Royal Ascot 2011, but finding the trainer who will enter the winners’ enclosure on four or five occasions could prove highly profitable.
Aidan O’Brien sure to be a top Royal Ascot trainer
Aidan O’Brien has witnessed a vast amount of Royal Ascot success in the past with horses including Yeats, Rock of Gibraltar, Giant’s Causeway and Henrythenavigator and he is certain to have a solid quota of Royal Ascot odds favourites again. The O’Brien team is led by horses such as Fame and Glory, So You Think and Epsom Derby winner Camelot, while the likes of Power, Await The Dawn, Kissed and Maybe will not be without a chance.
Sir Henry Cecil to have leading Royal Ascot runner with Frankel
However, O’Brien will not have everything his own way at Royal Ascot, as a number of other trainers will also be preparing the star horses of their respected yards to run big races. Sir Henry Cecil is one trainer who will be disappointed not to have a winner with Frankel out to extend his unbeaten streak to 11 races in the Queen Anne Stakes. Meanwhile, Noble Mission may be a challenger in the King Edward VII Stakes.
Although Sir Michael Stoute is no longer able to call on the services of Workforce, relatively big things remain expected of last season’s beaten Epsom Derby favourite Carlton House, while he also has Sea Moon.
Elsewhere, Mahmood Al Zarooni may saddle a winner as he sends Monterosso and Opinion Poll to Royal Ascot, John Gosden has Nathaniel and The Fugue, while Richard Hannon brings the unbeaten Harbour Watch.
