 Pre-race comments Kenilworth, 19 June

Mio Vito

Event: Race 1, Maiden Juvenile Plate

Miss Plumcake


Event: Race 2, Maiden Juvenile Plate (Fillies)

Distance: 1200m

Pre-race comments: Good debut effort, she has done well since her run and should be competitive if she reproduces her first run.

Distance: 1200m

Pre-race comments: Doing well at home and if he handles the wet should have an each way chance.

ASCOT: UNDERDOG TO BOOM ON TUESDAY!

Seen as the pinnacle of the British Flat season, £7.3 million prize-money is on offer at Royal Ascot which runs this year from Tuesday June 19, until Saturday June 23.



The festival will host at least one Gr1 race each day.

The feature race on the opening day is the King’s Stand Stakes, a 1000m sprint, while Wednesday will be headlined by the Prince of Wales’s Stakes.

On Thursday the stamina-sapping Gold Cup takes centre stage, Friday hosts the Commonwealth Cup and the Diamond Jubilee Stakes brings the meeting to a close on Saturday

Royal Ascot dates back to when the racecourse was founded in 1711 by Queen Anne.
The Guardian reports that if one were to imagine a sporting version of a socialist paradise, it would not look much like Royal Ascot and there is no surprise each year when the major races at the Queen’s track are won by enormously wealthy owners, working with big-name trainers.

But Tuesday’s St James’s Palace Stakes really might redistribute a chunk of prize money from those who have to those who need and Ken Condon, a much-liked but low-profile trainer, is hoping to be among those to benefit.

Only those who follow racing quite closely are likely to be familiar with Condon’s work. His is not one of those behemoth operations which start each year with more than 200 horses and end up with some good ones by sheer weight of numbers. Only 30 heads poke out into his yard at Ridge Manor Stables and there is no room for more.

Quality has been his focus since he started training in 2002 and in recent years the 44-year-old has got into the habit of making ninja-like raids on second-tier prizes in Britain, scooping up useful cash and returning to his base on the Curragh before some realised he was here. But now, thanks to Romanised, Condon’s arrival at Ascot is anticipated.

Despite odds of 25-1, Romanised won last month’s Irish 2,000 Guineas, beating horses trained by the mighty Aidan O’Brien into second, third and fourth. Runners owned by Dubai’s ruling family finished fifth and sixth. Condon’s colt finished clear of them all, eliciting a lot of pleasure from the crowd at his local track for a man described by some as “the nicest guy in Irish racing”.


Ken Condon – nicest guy in racing

Condon laughs at the label. “You wouldn’t want to believe half of what you hear, that’s what I’d say about that. I’m very much humbled by the reaction but there’s plenty fellas like me. Everyone would love to get their hands on a top horse.”

The British equivalent of Condon might be Roger Teal, a Lambourn trainer who is also punching above his weight with a strong contender in Tuesday’s race, his Tip Two Win having been a close second in the 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket.

A win for either would be seen as a popular, underdog victory.

FAIRVIEW BEST TIPS 18/6

Best tips and value tips for racing from Fairview on Monday 18th June with selections provided by Winning Form as well as their back page tipster, Magic Tips.



Winning Form Best Bets
Race 1: MARCH MUSIC(6)
Race 2: ALAMITO BAY(2)
Race 3: MACKEREL SKY(1)
Race 5: GOLDEN SHAMROCK(2)

Magic Tips Best Bets

TOP BET
Race 1: MARCH MUSIC(6)
Jockey: L Hewitson - Trainer: Y Bremner

MARCH MUSIC is clearly above-average and the bay filly built on her promising debut despite competing in a feature over seven furlongs second time out. She produced a powerful late burst for a close 2nd with the likes of Klever Kathy, Just Chaos and Carlita behind her. The daughter of Bold Silvano has her polytrack debut today and she should prove too classy for her maiden rivals.

Race 2: ALAMITO BAY(2)
Jockey: C Murray - Trainer: Tara Laing

Just eight sprinters head to post for this highly competitive five furlong maiden contest which should yield a close and exciting finish. ALAMITO BAY showed good speed before staying on well for 2nd into a strong headwind on debut against winners on the grass earlier this month and he would have come on appreciably from that outing. The chestnut colt is sure to enjoy the likely strong tempo on this surface and he can go one better in maiden company today.

Race 4: THE GOON SHOW(5)
Jockey: R Munger - Trainer: S Kotzen

THE GOON SHOW has the best credentials in this ordinary maiden contest and the son of Pathfork handled the test of stamina well in his recent outing. That said, he is equally capable over this shorter trip and holds strong claims for his in-form yard.

Race 8: FOR LUCK SAKE(2)
Jockey: R Khathi - Trainer: E Kaknis

FOR LUCK SAKE was given a confident ride as he claimed a deserved fifth career triumph three weeks ago. The veteran gelding was upped three pounds for his exertions but he is drawn best of all and quite interestingly, his time was slightly better than that of VARBRATION who contested a much strong- er c & d event a few hours earlier.

VALUE BET
Race 6: GLENNIE(2)
Jockey: J Sampson - Trainer: D McKenzie

GLENNIE made late progress in her creditable c & d display which was her first for her new conditioner and she will be fitter now. The former Cape inmate prefers racing with blinkers and she should be highly competitive at this lower-level
