Paul Ferguson has two selections for us on Thursday; Order Of St George in the 16:20 and Shraaoh 17:35 both at Royal Ascot. Compare odds and bet.
It’s Ascot Gold Cup day and it is hard to get away from ORDER OF ST GEORGE (4:20) in the week’s feature contest.
Aidan O’Brien’s four-year-old made giant strides last season and made an impressive return in the Savel Beg Stakes just 13 days to go.
The Galileo colt shapes as though he will improve again for the marathon trip and he can justify short odds.
If you would prefer an each-way alternative Curbyourenthusiasm is a horse I have plenty of time for and I could certainly see him outrunning his odds, though drier ground would be preferable.
Later on the card SHRAAOH (5:35) can land the concluding King George V Stakes for Sir Michael Stoute.
The son of Sea The Stars ran away with a Newcastle maiden three weeks ago and is another who shapes as though this step up in trip will suit.
