Royal Ascot 2019 – Wednesday

She probably has the least regal name at the meeting but we are really looking forward to Flippa The Strippa running in the Queen Mary. She looks stronger than she did before her win in the National Stakes and her work has been good. The ground could be a bit of an unknown if the forecast is correct, however she’s a tough and talented filly who will do her best.

Afaak bids to go one better in the Hunt Cup, however it is going to be a bit of an ask on his seasonal debut. There’s been nothing specifically wrong with him, he’s just taken time to come to himself. He’s done plenty of work so it will be interesting to see how he goes.
