Ascot British Champions Day

With bookmakers having already priced up the five championship races at Ascot on Saturday and with most firms going non runner no bet and best price guarantee.It looks good time to place the first Ascot bet.

The first race on the card the 2 mile Long distance cup looks interesting race.

2 MILES LONG DISTANCE CUP G3 ASCOT 1.50 SATURDAY
TIMES UP : Improving 5 year old ,won three times this season including two listed races .Looked to relish the step up in trip last time at Newmarket when breaking 2 mile course record, beating Chilberta King in good style.

VERDICT : Decent looking group 3 contest with just three main contenders .Opinion Poll , Times Up and Fame and Glory .

Opinion Poll has been model of consistency this season winning twice in Goodwood Cup and Lonsdale Cup and finishing second twice in Ascot Gold cup and last time in Doncaster Cup .Looks sure to run well again .

Fame and Glory was impressive winner of Ascot Gold cup back in June beating Opinion Poll by 3 lenghs ,though has looked very disappointing since having been beaten in Irish St leger trial at odds 1/3 and then running stinker in Irish St Leger behind Duncan on soft ground .After two poor runs looks no value at around 11-4.

TIMES UP looked impressive last time at Newmarket in listed race and looks open to plenty more improvement over this 2 mile trip .Will be suited by fast ground and at 7-2 looks very fair value  to get the better of likely favourite Opinion Poll .

£143 EACH-WAY @ 7-2 BET365.
