                                                   Is Palace Peerless?


Queen Elizabeth II Stakes (Sponsored by Qipco)             3.05 Ascot 1m Round


A fabulous days racing at Ascot today including 4 Group 1 races. The short priced favourite for the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes is the John Gosden trained Palace Pier. The three-year-old son of Kingman has won twice this year at Group 1 level winning the St James Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot beating Pinatubo and last time out the Prix Jacques le Marois at Deauville. He will not be inconvenienced by the prevailing soft ground and this burgeoning equine superstar will take all the beating.

However, in this race there is the opportunity to have an EW bet which is unlikely to have any downside. The answer to this is the French five-year-old gelding The Revenant. He was second in the race last year behind the Richard Hannon trained King of Change beaten a length and a quarter and has been trained with this race in mind. He reappeared at Longchamp at the beginning of October and won the Group 2 Prix Daniel Wildenstein, the same prep race he won in 2019. His trainer stated after the race that he was only 80% fit and would be ready at Ascot. He is to be ridden by Pierre-Charles Boudot probably the best jockey to come from France since Yves Saint-Martin. I cannot see this horse not being in the first three and believe he has every chance of beating Palace Pier.

Of the others the Aidan O’Brien trained Circus Maximus the winner of the Queen Anne in June but well beaten by Palace Pier in Prix Jacques le Marois can take third place but should not beat the principals.

Tip EW The Revenant 11/2       ¼ odds 1.2.3 Paddy Power


Price correct at 8.40am subject to fluctuation
