Global Giant Even money FAV for Rose Of Lancaster Stakes

So we have GLOBAL GIANT at the head of the market for this one at even money* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:15 GMT on Friday, 7th August 2020). He could be a fair step ahead of this field.

Global Giant has scored in two of his last three runs and he has come on leaps and bounds since teaming up with trainer John Gosden.

Three weeks ago he had returning jockey Frankie Dettori in the season and won over the distance at Newbury, with Extra Elusive behind him.

This is a step up in grade for him and he looks more than good enough to handle himself. There are leading claims from him without question.

Even Money

William Hill

Zaaki with some claims

We of course have to size up the competition and look for other value in the field.

ZAAKI will likely be a big contender and one that anyone thinking of opposing the favourite will take a good look at.

Last time out he didn’t have the sharpest of runs at the Ascot Summer Mile. Traffic didn’t help either.

But Zaaki will probably be happy with the extra trip in this one and his third at the Diomed was more of what he can potentially do.

He should be kept on side from the 9/2 current quote* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:15 GMT on Friday, 7th August 2020)

Extra Elusive back to challenge

EXTRA ELUSIVE was toppled by a length when he faced Global Giant at Newbury three weeks ago.

It was a strange and messy race and Extra Elusive had shaped well before lacking at the end.

He should be able to get in the frame for a place you would imagine.

A bold enough run should be extended from Extra Elusive, but he has some clear ground to make up on the race favourite.

Extra Elusive is a 11/2 quote* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:15 GMT on Friday, 7th August 2020).

Morisco to shine from the bottom of the weights?

From a mark of 99 comes the challenge of MORISCO for this Haydock trip. He is a currently the big outsider from 33/1 odds* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:15 GMT on Friday, 7th August 2020).

There has been a win in three of his six runs so far, including on his return to action this year.

That was in a Newbury handicap. The softer going didn’t seem to suit Morisco last time out however as he struggled to get going at Newmarket. But better ground could see e/w appeal.

Certain Lad to get involved?

CERTAIN LAD is at top weight for the fixture and is a 12/1 option* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 20:15 GMT on Friday, 7th August 2020). But he retains a little bit of interest.

That is because he came back into a nice bit of form by taking a runner up spot at the John Smith’s Cup at York three weeks ago.

He finished with a fair bit of distance to the third-place finisher as well. Certain Lad has scored twice at Haydock in his career.

Rest of the runners

CROSSED BATON had a disappointing return to action, finishing well down the field in a Royal Ascot effort. He is going to need something of a bounce-back performance. He retains the tongue-tie and cheekpieces.

FOX TAL hasn’t managed to find his top gear this season. He has looked a bit work-shy overall and that means that the Andrew Balding-trained colt is probably going to struggle to shine in this race.

Predictions & Tips for Rose Of Lancaster Stakes Racing Odds

There is a clear front runner here in GLOBAL GIANT and we don’t see him being toppled. We are basing that on how far EXTRA ELUSIVE was behind him in their last meeting.

We expect a stiff enough challenge from the latter to come in again as well, but to fall short of the favourite.

The only other serious challenger that we can see from this field is ZAAKI who still retains a bit of risk.

His performance in the Ascot Summer Mile last time out was suspect in a combative race, but looks decent enough for a bit of an extra trip.
