Royal Ascot 2018 Top Trainer and Jockey Betting – Horse Racing Odds June 19-23

Horse Racing Betting
There are a number of specials surrounding next week's Royal Ascot. The most popular are traditionally the markets surrounding Top Trainer and Top Jockey, though there are odds-on favourites in both. Aidan O'Brien has been Top Trainer at the Royal meeting for the past four years and a powerful team has been assembled to ensure the master of Ballydoyle takes the lion's share of the prize money again. O'Brien amassed a record tally of 28 Group or Grade 1 winners in 2017 and has already sent out two UK classic winners this season in Saxon Warrior and Forever Together. Rhododendron, U S Navy Flag, Hydrangea and Order Of St George are just a few of the stars that the Irish trainer will be sending over. Coral are among those layers offering 1/2 that O'Brien is top dog again this year but the Cashel-based team is not the only one expecting the winners to flow at Royal Ascot next week. John Gosden will run Cracksman and also has high hopes for the likes of Without Parole, Stream Of Stars, Lah Ti Dar and Stradivarius. The yard has been in cracking form so the general 7/2 will make plenty of appeal. Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin team won the Epsom Derby a couple of weeks ago but the operation's leading trainer, Charlie Appleby, is as big as 14/1 to be Top Trainer at Royal Ascot and Sir Michael Stoute is 16/1 in places.

Royal Ascot 2018 Top Trainer Betting

Aidan O'Brien 8/11 John Gosden 7/2 Charlie Appleby 14/1 Sir Michael Stoute 16/1 Mark Johnston 25/1 William Haggas 25/1 Roger Varian 33/1 Wesley Ward 33/1 Clive Cox 50/1 Saeed bin Suroor 50/1 The Top Jockey betting is shaping up to be a match between Ryan Moore and Frankie Dettori. Moore holds the record for most number of wins at a single Royal Ascot meeting, riding nine in 2015. He's been Top Jockey at the meeting for the past four seasons but Dettori has won 50 races down the years at Royal Ascot, including that famous 'Magnificent Seven' in 1996. The pair are backed by the two stables that are likely to dominate proceedings so will have plenty of ammunition and are 8/11 (William Hill) and 7/2 (Betway) respectively to top the charts in 2018. Godolphin's retained jockeys, James Doyle and William Buick, are respectively a best 10/1 and 12/1 but you can get 20/1 about Hamdam Al Maktoum's retained jockey Jim Crowley, even though he has a possible plum ride on Battaash in the King's Stand Stakes. Champion jockey Silvestre De Sousa is 33/1 with several bookmakers.

Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup 2016 Odds – Horse Racing Betting August 6

Horse Racing Betting
Frankie Dettori, Joe Fanning, Silvestre de Sousa and Emma-Jayne Wilson have been confirmed as team captains for the 2016 Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup, the world’s premier international jockey’s competition at Ascot this Saturday. This year sees a further increase in prize money with all six races now worth £45,000 (up £5,000 on last year) with each rider getting five mounts as they bid to help their team win the Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup. Last year saw the Girls team lift the trophy for the first time when they claimed three of the six races. Emma-Jayne Wilson, who captained them to victory, is back and will be joined by apprentice Josephine Gordon with Hayley Turner coming out of retirement to complete the trio. Wilson is Canada’s most successful female jockey having ridden over 1,000 winners. This will be her fifth Shergar Cup appearance and she has ridden a winner in each of the last two years, though it was team-mate Sammy Jo Bell who stole the limelight 12 months ago. Frankie Dettori is a Shergar Cup veteran having taken part seven times. He missed out on riding in 2015 due to suspension but has been keen to get back to his role of captaining the European team. He will be partnered by two Shergar Cup debutants from across The Channel this year - Thierry Jarnet and Pierre-Charles Boudot. Jarnet rode Treve to two Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe triumphs and Boudot shared the 2015 French Jockeys Championship with Christophe Soumillon. Britain’s current champion jockey Silvestre de Sousa will captain the Rest Of The World team and is hoping for big things from South African champion Gavin Lerena and the Japan Cup-winning jockey Kenichi Ikezoe. Only one of Great Britain's original team are available so Joe Fanning has taken up the challenge of captaining the home team. He will be joined by Martin Harley and Oisin Murphy. The Girls team is not as strong this year and Great Britain's trio has been cobbled together at the last minute so Europe and the Rest of The World should be the teams fighting over the Shergar Cup with Europe's riders looking good at William Hill's 7/4. A free bet offer is available when you sign up at William Hill via this link and use the promotional code F20. Deposit then and place your first bet of at least £10 (at minimum odds of 1.20 which equals to 1/5 in fractional odds). Once your first bet is settled, you will get two free bet tokens of £10. The free bets are valid only for 30 days, so make sure you use them quickly! Terms and conditions apply, please see full details directly at William Hill. William Hill make Pierre-Charles Boudot their favourite for the Shergar Cup Silver Saddle at 4/1 and he does look to have a few choice mounts, though Kenichi Ikezoe is worth a saver at 8/1.

William Hill Betting for the Shergar Cup Silver Saddle

Pierre-Charles Boudot (4/1), Frankie Dettori (5/1), Josephine Gordon (11/2), Joe Fanning and Emma-Jayne Wilson (7/1), Kenichi Ikezoe (8/1), Martin Harley (9/1), Silvestre De Sousa (12/1), Hayley Turner and Thierry Jarnet (16/1), Gavin Larena and Oisin Murphy (20/1)

Royal Ascot Leading Jockey Odds – Horse Racing Betting Jun 16 – 20

Horse Racing Betting
Richard Hughes' final appearance at Royal Ascot won't get the same media coverage as A P McCoy's final Cheltenham Festival. Rightly so, you could argue, 'Hughsie' hasn't been around half as long as A P but he's a very stylish jockey who has generally made a positive contribution to Flat racing in the UK and I'd hope that there would be some kind of presentation at the royal meeting to mark his imminent retirement. Hughes, backed up by Richard Hannon's powerful stable, is 10/1 with BetVictor and Paddy Power to be leading jockey at Royal Ascot and there could be some value in those odds. He has some excellent rides, especially on day one when he partners Sole Power as Eddie Lynam's star sprinter bids for a hat-trick of victories in the King's Stand Stakes - he's a best 4/1 with Skybet, Stan James and 888sport. Fun Mac looks to have decent claims in the Ascot Stakes at 41/5 on betdaq while the well-regarded Orvar (a general 7/1) will bid to extend his unbeaten record in the Windsor Castle Stakes. Hughes rides hot favourite Ivawood (a best 13/8 with William Hill, 888sport, Coral and BetVictor) in the opening Jersey Stakes on Wednesday and there are high hopes for royal runner Peacock (4/1 with 888sport) in Thursday's Tercentary Stakes. Flying filly Tiggy Wiggy is among his rides on Friday and is an 11/2 chance with Paddy Power for the new Commonwealth Cup, a 6f sprint for three-year-olds. Ryan Moore is the hot favourite to be leading jockey, however, at 4/9 with Coral, betfair and betway. He'll ride all of Coolmore's leading lights including dual 2000 Guineas winner Gleneagles in the St James's Palace Stakes on the opening day. He's a general 8/13 for the Group 1 contest with French 2000 Guineas winner Make Believe widely available at 7/2. A resurgent Frankie Dettori returns to the scene of his greatest triumph and has won both the Epsom Derby and French Oaks in the last couple of weeks. He is a general 8/1 and has some nice rides lined up for retainer Al Shaqab Racing over the next few days. Godolphin jockeys James Doyle and William Buick are both a best 16/1 to be leading jockey at Royal Ascot while Paul Hanagan is 20/1 with Betfred, Stan James and Ladbrokes. Aidan O'Brien is favourite to top the trainers' table at 5/2 with Coral, betfair and betway with Richard Hannon at 3/1 with Ladbrokes. Sir Michael Stoute is 9/2 with 888sport, William Hill and betway with John Gosden at 9/1 with Coral.

Celebrity Big Brother 2013 – Novelty Betting

Novelty Betting & Other Events Betting
As I sit in my office I can see the snow falling on the trees and fields outside and I wonder how it somehow always manages to play havoc with the integral parts of the British infrastructure. I must say, I have to give full marks to my wife this morning as she got out of bed half an hour earlier to clear the car and a path to the road. I did have to open the window and tell her to stop scraping the shovel on the driveway, however, as I was struggling to get back to sleep. It's all nonsense, really, and show just how easy we have it nowadays in modern society. Fifty years ago, in conditions five times worse than those we're encountering this week, people were cheerfully clearing railway lines by hand so they could get to work. If the buses stopped you walked, or hitched a ride on the infrequent snow ploughs (I actually did that once myself when I couldn't get home). Nowadays, many people don't even bother ringing up to say they won't be coming in. Imagine if the people of Norway, Austria or Switzerland had the same attitude. Countries would shut down for months at a time! Why on earth doesn't somebody take a leaf out of their book? Of course, in the Big Brother house, the celebrities have no travel problems and, with little 'outdoor' sport likely to take place this week, punters are turning to something which will guarantee a bit of action, albeit most of it rather pointless. Rylan Clark remains the general 4/6 favourite, the X Factor failure displaying a surprisingly moral attitude in dealings with Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt last week, but there has been a massive gamble on Tricia Penrose and the Scouse actor/singer is now only a best 5/2 with Ladbrokes to be last to leave the house. A mainstay of the drama 'Heartbeat' for more than 15 years, the recently slimmed-down 42-year-old reportedly isn't TOWIE's Amy Childs' favourite actress but that might explain why she's proving popular with everyone else. Poor old Frankie Dettori , who must already deeply regret getting involved in such a venture, is out to a general 33/1 to be last out.

Frankie Dettori Specials – Horse Racing Betting

Horse Racing Betting
Let's not beat about the bush here, the use of any kind of illegal drug in sport in general is abhorrent. Not only is it almost certainly harmful to the wrongdoer, it's an attempt to cheat genuine rivals and usually the paying public. The actions of the likes of Lance Armstrong and Ben Johnson are reprehensible and they deserve to have their names struck from the record books. But can we really tar everyone who has strayed from the straight and narrow with the same brush? There's been no official confirmation but Frankie Dettori's misdemeanours apparently involved recreational rather than performance-enhancing stimulants and that's why the racing public should probably give the veteran Italian jockey another chance. There are some who nod sagely and say that recent events explain how Dettori always appears so bubbly. Of course, nobody smiles all of the time and Frankie is no longer in the full flush and youth and, sometimes, will feel his advancing years when trying to compete with much younger rivals. But racing needs characters like him, albeit drugs-free. In British racing, A P McCoy may ride more winners and Ryan Moore may have more steely determination. Richard Hughes has managed to adjust his riding style and become champion jockey but none of them are as entertaining as Frankie in front of a camera, his 'Flying Dismount' still a trademark after big-race success. One does wonder if Sheikh Mohammed had more than an inkling that his retained rider had been a naughty boy when severing their long-standing connection earlier this year - the timing makes sense. But, after a suitable period of rehabilitation, that's no reason for the rest of us to give up on one of the most extrovert characters on the racecourse. Paddy Power are offering 4/1 that Dettori returns with a winner when his ban ends in 2013 and Evens that he rides a Group 1 winner in either the UK or Ireland next year. There's a rumour that Ballydoyle may give him some help in that respect. Coral go 10/1 that he rides a UK Classic winner in 2013 but we already know he'll miss both the 1000 and 2000 Guineas. The same firm thinks he may branch out into reality TV and only offer 2/1 that the Italian appears in either I'm A Celebrity, Strictly Come Dancing or Celebrity Big Brother next year.

Frankie Dettori Specials – Horse Racing Betting

Horse Racing Betting
Frankie Dettori in Godolphin's royal blue silks is one of the most iconic images in racing but there have been indications over the last couple of years that everything in the Dubai garden was no longer rosy and the Italian will split with Sheikh Mohammed's multi-million dollar organisation at the end of the year. At 41, Dettori is in the twilight of his career but it still must have come as a shock to discover he was no longer guaranteed the best rides for his retainer. That honour will go to Mickael Barzalona from 2013 - he's already ridden two classic winners in England. There may be a job as first rider for Sheikh Fahad, the Qatari royal who has ploughed a large fortune into racing over the past the last three years, though another rumour says that Jamie Spencer has already accepted that post. Paddy Power have priced up Dettori at 4/1 to switch to Irish bloodstock giant Coolmore but that would make it impossible for him to fulfill his dream of recapturing the British jockeys' title and it's unlikely trainer Aidan O'Brien would take kindly to seeing his son Joseph jocked off,  though the 19-year-old's size is increasingly going to mean he can't make the weight on some of the stable stars. He was too heavy to ride Camelot in this year's Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe, for example, when Frankie stepped in. Dettori rode 110 Group One winners among 943 winners for Godolphin in his 18 years as principal jockey. Those included Arc victories on Sakhee and Marienbard as well as Dubai Millennium's success in the 2000 Dubai World Cup. He will continue in his job until the end of the calendar year but, at present, is planning to turn freelance after that. Silvestre De Sousa will ride as back-up to Barzalona. Ladbrokes make Frankie a 14/1 chance to win next year's jockey's championship. De Sousa is 6/1 with Stan James and champion-elect Richard Hughes 5/4 with bet365 to triumph again in 2013.  You can have 3/1 that Dettori rides a UK classic winner with Ladbrokes and he's 4/6 with Paddy Power to ride a Group 1 winner in either the UK or Ireland.
