INNS OF COURT: WON’T BE BEATEN AT ROYAL ASCOT

The Andre Fabre trained five year-old Inns of Court is my idea of one of the best early ante-post bets for the upcoming Royal Ascot festival.

This 9/2 currently available for this son of Invincible Spirit looks rather generous.

He appears almost certain to run in Diamond Jubilee Stakes on Saturday 22 June. This characteristically competitive Group one contest is worth a massive £340,260.00 to the winner and educated French trainer Andre Fabre has made it no top-secret that he assumes his progressive colt to being more than equipped to win this six furlongs race.

Inn Of Court has exclusively race in France throughout his career to-date and thus far has raced only twice this season, once in Chantilly and the other in Maisons-Laffitte and both runs have yield a victory. He never gave his supporters a seconds worry, winning with plenty in-hand and certainly not given a full-force ride by his habitual jockey Mickael Barzalona.

The Owners of this electrifying colt are the all-conquering Godolphin, they will be optimistic he can give their authoritative operation another royal ascot winner with minimal fuss. This colt looks unopposable on the evidence of his runs this year and it will take a good one to beat him in the Diamond Jubilee .

Largely, the bookmakers are not far of with their ante-post betting assumptions though on this occasion the 9/2 currently available with most firms looks rather lavish. I’d very much doubt he will be available at biggish price come Saturday 22nd June. I’m definitely investing a few quid on him now.
