Royal Ascot – Wednesday

We’ll have two runners on Wednesday, and they’re in the last two races. Afaak is one of the favourites for The Hunt Cup following his win at York. He’s grown up considerably this year and is now fulfilling the promise we’ve always seen in him. These handicaps are difficult as we don’t know about the draw, but hopefully he’ll be in the right place this year. He was unfortunate in The Britannia last year as he won the race on his side, but it was the wrong side as far as the draw was concerned.

Nebo will drop back to seven furlongs in The Jersey having failed to stay in the 2000 Guineas. He needs to step up on what he has shown this year, but on last years form should be capable of holding his own.
