Pieros

If I reflect on my journey, I realize that horse racing gambling has been a lifelong passion for me. It all began when I was merely fourteen years old, though I must admit that success didn't always come easily. Learning the hard way, with the weight of my own money at stake, taught me valuable lessons that I carry with me to this day. However, my life took a significant turn when Betfair entered the scene. This remarkable internet platform opened doors for me, offering an opportunity to study and analyze the fluctuating odds in an entirely new way. I witnessed countless individuals laying horses rated at 12/1 on the course, hoping to make a quick twenty quid, only to face long-term consequences. Sadly, many of those impulsive heroes are no longer with us. After spending several years dedicated to studying and testing this revolutionary betting approach, I made a life-changing decision. I bid farewell to my position as a sales manager and fully embraced a life devoted to horse racing. Since then, I have been joyfully immersed in this extraordinary sport, managing to generate profits while becoming completely addicted to the thrill of making accurate predictions. When I back a winner, I can't help but celebrate loudly, eager to let everyone know that I was spot on. I have developed an aversion to backing short-priced favorites and consciously avoid placing bets on odds-on runners. Although, I must admit that I occasionally succumb to the temptation and back a favorite, only to feel a tinge of guilt or a sense of foolishness when it fails to deliver. Despite my many years of experience, I remain a perpetual learner, constantly seeking to expand my knowledge and refine my strategies. In recent years, I have had the privilege of establishing connections with numerous racing yards, even coming close to owning racehorses. Yet, I have hesitated to take that leap of faith, missing out on some truly remarkable opportunities. My adoration for juveniles and their raw talent fuels my ambition, and I am determined to enter the market as an owner in the near future, driven by a burning desire to be a part of their incredible journeys. Horse racing has been my lifelong passion, and I am grateful for the lessons it has taught me. Every day, I am reminded of the vastness of this sport and the endless opportunities for growth and discovery. As I embark on this exciting path, I invite you to join me, sharing in the joy and anticipation that only horse racing can offer. Together, let us celebrate the triumphs, learn from the losses, and embrace the beauty of this remarkable world.

Pieros's Tips

18th June 2024
15:45 3:45 Royal Ascot

Asfoora

Daily Racing

50 WIN

Australians have won this race five times, with the latest victory by Nature Strip in 2022, and they've always been quite successful when traveling to this meeting. It seems Henry Dwyer has long targeted this race with his excellent mare Asfoora, a multiple Group 2 winner with several place efforts at Group 1 level. They gave her a prep run in a Group 2 at Haydock, so this mare has been in the UK for some time already. Despite the testing ground, which she did not enjoy, she ran well for a long way to finish a creditable fourth. Regular jockey Mitchell Aitken has been replaced by Oisin Murphy, who rides this track particularly well. Given that there is no real standout in the contest, I suspect this tough mare has a solid chance at around 9/1.

Twilight Calls

Daily Racing

50 EW

Since his last success in a handicap at Newmarket, Twilight Calls has been highly tried and has done well in pattern company despite not winning. Over the past couple of years, he has been aimed at this race, finishing second in 2022 and fourth in last year’s contest. He has had only a few preparation runs in between and has been overall lightly raced. The big problem is that he always gives too much ground away at the start, making his life difficult but finishing off his races with a flourish. This was again the case when he made an eye-catching return in the Group 3 Palace House Stakes after 253 days off the track. He was slowly away but was eventually beaten by only ¾ lengths by fitter opponents. If he can break on terms, he will have a better chance, especially in this year's contest where the early pace looks very strong, allowing him to pick up the pieces late on. At around 12/1 with bookies offering extra places, he must go on the shortlist.

Rosallion

Daily Racing

75 WIN

Notable Speech is still unbeaten in four starts, including a victory in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, and looks like the one to beat. However, Rosallion, who was second to today’s favourite, has improved significantly with that run under his belt and was particularly impressive when winning the Irish 2000 Guineas. He needs quick ground to display his tremendous turn of foot and caught the eye last year when winning a Listed race at this venue. He went on to win the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere on Arc Day like a smart sort and will get his preferred conditions. Well drawn in stall one, it will be fascinating to see the racing strategy, whether staying up with the pace, which seems weak, or waiting at the rear. Hopefully, Sean Leavy will make use of the good starting gate and get involved in the finish.

Almuhit

Daily Racing

35 EW

Given Willie Mullins and Pipe’s success in this race, more and more jumping trainers are joining the party every year, trying their chances in the prestigious Ascot Stakes. Emmet Mullins has an interesting runner in Almuhit, a Shadwell-bred horse who was trained by Gosden. Almuhit is a full brother to multiple Group 1 winner Taghrooda, who won the King George VI And Queen Elizabeth Stakes by a street, beating Telescope in 2014. Although not as talented as his sister, Almuhit has been around a couple of yards and has shaped really well on drying ground on several occasions over jumps. He was 5th of sixteen at Navan over 1m5f on the flat, looking like the step up in distance will suit him. Rated 89 and carrying only 9-1, Almuhit has a great draw in stall 3 with the eye-catching jockey booking of Colin Keane. He is a 22/1 shot, much bigger on exchanges, but he has given his shrewd yard plenty to work with after his last display. Worth a small interest with bookies paying extra places.

Botanical

Daily Racing

50 EW

Roger Varian comes to Royal Ascot with several realistic chances this year, as many of his horses have improved significantly with another winter under their belts. I was particularly impressed by his Botanical, who bolted up in a super competitive York 0-100 handicap over today’s distance, seemingly in a league of his own. Consistent last year, he gained experience through the handicap route and now looks more than ready for pattern level. The dam was a Listed winner who stayed 1m6f, and Botanical was always going to improve over 1 mile and a quarter, with a good chance he’ll stay further. He already ran over this course and distance but was held up in last in a slowly run event, only able to run on for third. This contest looks more suitable with the big field and strong pace that can give him a good tow into the race. The draw is not ideal, but if he can get into a good position, he has a solid chance to get involved. William Buick booked for the job signals serious intent, making Botanical an each-way shout.

My Mate Mozzie

Daily Racing

25 EW

Last year, the winner was a certainty with Royal Ascot celebrating a gamble landed on Willie Mullins’ Vauban. He is back for more this year with Belloccio, but I’m fancying My Mate Mozzie, who has been quite effective on the flat with an excellent 5th out of 30 in the Irish Cesarewitch and had a satisfying campaign over jumps this term, with solid performances at the best meetings in England and Ireland. He gets in with a decent weight of 9-3, and despite a wide draw, he is so consistent and capable of running another good race. He should have an each-way chance at around 8/1.

Meydaan

Daily Racing

50 EW

There is not really a guaranteed stayer on pedigree for this 1m6f contest, but I’m hopeful that Meydaan can see out the trip given the way he shaped up the last two times. In the Derby trial, he bumped into Ambiente Friendly and an awkwardly racing Illinois, but he stayed on well to finish in third spot before winning a Listed race at Goodwood, just holding on in the closing stages from the fast-finishing and slightly unlucky Space Legend. Indeed, if his opponent had found the gap earlier, he might have been beaten, but Meydaan proved to be the most straightforward and definitely a strong stayer. He is by Frankel out of Nezwaah, who raced in the times of Enable, and all she could do was chase her home, filling up the frame. There's a big upgrade in the saddle with William Buick taking over the ride, and he's a decent enough price at 17/2 for an each-way bet.

Rogue Millennium

Daily Racing

75 WIN

Favourite Laurel arrives here with a lot of questions to answer, having been off the track for more than a year and with the yard not really on fire. Last year’s winner of the race, Rogue Millennium, has been given a good prep run in a Group 2 at the Curragh after moving from Tom Clover to Joseph O’Brien. She was a bit unlucky, boxed at the far rail with nowhere to go, and probably a bit rusty as she couldn’t make up the ground in the closing stages. She has been competitive all last year at pattern level, and her return shows she has trained on and retains all her ability. She should come on plenty from that first seasonal run and get involved starting from a good draw.

Royal Dress

Daily Racing

50 EW

In the each-way market, I don’t mind the 10/1 on offer for Royal Dress, whom I backed each way last time out at Epsom where she was really unlucky, repeatedly denied a clear run and forced to accept third place. She made a winning return after a break at Goodwood, beating course specialist Novus and Breege, both of whom are also in the race again. She is a half-sister to Wedding Dance and Ibraz, both rated 99, out of a dam who stayed one mile and a half. Coming from a family whose progeny improve with age and experience, Tate’s charge looks like a nice prospect and should keep improving: the hood has done wonders as she can now settle better in her races.

Horizon Dore

Daily Racing

50 EW

I think the horses at the head of the market are extremely classy but not the most reliable, so I’m not rushing to take the short odds and will try to oppose with an each-way play. Horizon Dore makes the trip from France on the back of a narrow defeat in the Group 1 Prix D’Ispahan at Longchamp, coming with his characteristic late run. He competed at Ascot on Champion Day and finished a creditable third despite being too keen at the rear in a slowly run event. He has won a couple of Group 2 races and has been knocking on the door at the highest level, showing consistency and gets on well with Mickael Barzalona. In current form, I can see him going well, and he makes some appeal at around 13/2.
