1pt win Yahsat 18/1, 1pt win Manhattan Jungle @33/1, 14:30 Royal Ascot, Wednesday

5f Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2) (Fillies) (Class 1) (2yo)

I could name four or five potential winners in here if you can see past the American raider, who was faultless on her debut but lacks much substance to her form. That could all change with another Wesley Ward trained demolition job but this is exactly the kind of race for a big priced winner and the 33/1 about MANHATTAN JUNGLE is too big for a horse that’s 3/3 in France and has barely come off the bridle yet. She knows how to win and there are plenty ahead of her in the betting who’ve shown comparative form, so she’s worth chancing as a value play. I’m doubling up with YAHSAT too as she showed a lot of speed when narrowly edged out at York last time – the winner is third favourite for the Norfolk tomorrow – and getting beaten is no barrier to success in these juvenile sprints. Her stablemate is hogging the limelight but is a fraction of her 18/1 quotes and I’d expect her to be one of the last off the bridle.
