Wednesday's bet on Codemaster was once again another second,making it five bets in June one winner and four seconds , bit frustrating when nearly every bet seems to be finishing second at minute.
Codemaster was well supported in market going off the 7-4 favourite ,though closing at the finish never really looked like catching the Richard Hannon trained Strong Suit who got first run and held on to win by half lengh .
With the earlier withdrawal of Fury there was also 20p in £ deduction making it loss of £45.00 on the race.
On to day three at Royal Ascot the racing on Thursday looks very competitive with some very big fields .The feature race the Ascot Gold Cup looks quite tricky race with plenty question marks about most of the runners in the race, favourite Fame and Glory looks very short in market for horse who is unproven over this marathan trip ,though after studying the race for some time couldn't really come up with solid selection against the favourite.
Going concentrate on the second race on the card the group two Ribbersdale Stakes over 1mile 4 furlongs for 3-Y-0 fillies.
1MILE 4F RIBBESDALE STAKES GROUP THREE 3-Y-0 FILLIES 3.05
RUMH : Fast improving filly since stepping up in trip this season ,finished good third on her seasonal reappearance in the Swettenham Stud stakes at Newbury in April behind Izzi Top and Dancing Rain beaten just over 3 lenghs that form has been well and truly boosted with Dancing Rain and Izzi Top finishing 1st and 3rd in Oaks at Epsom .Followed that with an impressive 6 lengh win in Ballymcall Stud listed stakes at Newbury last week .
VERDICT : Both Banimpire and Rumh look two decent fillies .Banimpire has to rate as big danger after already winning 4 times this season including winning three group 3 races .Was impressive 3 lengh winner 4 days ago in group 3 contest at Cork over 1 mile 4f .Slightly surprising she's making such quick reappearance ,though looks very tough filly and looks sure to well.
RUMH takes step up in class from listed company ,though looked very impressive last time at Newbury and should be suited by this step up in trip, the stable has won the race for last two years. 4-1 looks fair value.
