He did run well in the Arc. But the nearer to the off time the less I likely I think he will win. Is this the toughest Ascot Gold Cup he has contested? Irish will be ganging up on him for sure. His run style means Frankie will be challenging two or three deep and danger something will get a dream run up the rail.
Pause Switch to Standard View I want Stradivarius to win...

Arc he ran as I thought. Here I hope it is not a damp squib and he is slaughtered.....ENABLE.

However, I think he will get home.  If he is beaten lets hope its carrying his shield.

Stradivarius is 2.5 here against these lot, and only 4/6 a few weeks ago. Has he lost a leg or merely the prevailing soft ground? Gosden has been waxing lyrical about his work and disappointed another encounter against Subjectivist was scuppered by an injury to the latter.

Lot of support for Trueshan in anticipation of soft ground

I've not backed a Gp 1 winner of the new season but my money is on Stradivaruius and Frankie tomorrow (Frankie rode a stinker last time) unless a monsoon arrives prior. The horse continues to drift, out to 2.92 here from under 2.
Report Storm Alert July 26, 2021 7:08 PM BST
I thought he was a risky proposition last time and even more so tomorrow. Having said that, Skybet 2/1 and money back if 2nd or 3rd a very reasonable offer. Given a poor ride last time and Dettori will be trying to make amends tomorrow. Definitely a punt for old times sake rather than confident bet.

The rain is the main reason for the drift, soft favours Trueshan, a dry night and morning is needed for Stradivarius.
Report impossible123 July 26, 2021 7:24 PM BST
He's getting on nevertheless I think against these lot he's more than capable of returning to the winner's enclosure with the help of his pilot; 3.05 too big to ignore. Here's hoping.

I don't think 7 is getting on. I've backed with Sky hoping to get money back at worst.

More rain to come overnight, best to wait and see just how much imo.

Trueshan hacking up at Ascot on champions day when Strad was completely bolloxxed isn't a great form guide. They both come into this with questions to answer. Worth a chip on something else, Away He Goes 80/1.

Did he not sluice up in atrocious condition just not long ago? I think it's ok if the ground is not boggy.
Report Tiger Tiger July 26, 2021 8:59 PM BST
He can perform on soft, but not as well as he performs on better ground, 13 of his wins have come on good or better, 8 of his defeats have come with the word soft or heavy in the going.
Report impossible123 July 26, 2021 9:05 PM BST
I just hope he's not "" because of his Arc assertion. That was sheer barmy, I firmly believe. Imagine running Tiger Roll in a Gold Cup? Even his wayward connections never contemplated that.
Report Tiger Tiger July 26, 2021 9:17 PM BST
I hope he wins tomorrow, he has won 3 Group 1's on soft but there are too many question marks  as to whether he performs better on good ground or better, the opposition matters of course and he has beaten plenty of these before, a watching brief for me with the hope that he puts in a good performance. Good luck if you're backing him.
Report impossible123 July 26, 2021 9:24 PM BST
I think gluey ground hinders him, but soft is ok. I just hope his pilot has his thinking cap on.

The class horse in the field. It's likely I'll back it but there's a solid place bet here. Still trying to figure that one out.

Trueshan now looks like a shoo-in?

Santiago was inconvenienced by the fast going in his St Leger. Good chance?

Small bet…Nayef Road each way 2 places without Trueshan 11/1.

Fav should bolt up though.

Serpentine the Derby winner finished 2nd last. Anyone still doubting he was gifted the Derby by the jocks of principal protagonists? Maybe we'll see Serpentine at Cheltenham.
