The dust has finally settled after an unforgettable Royal Ascot!
The meeting isn't usually one I expect to make a profit from and that was even more so the case this year with the season only a few weeks old following the resumption of racing (following the Covid-19 outbreak) and many horses heading there without a recent run.
However, NMP members enjoyed a magnificent week that saw us land a +63 pt profit smash up on a horse I have a small share in myself, Dandalla. Trained by Karl Burke in North Yorkshire and owned by the Nick Bradley Racing syndicate, I advised a strong bet on her for her debut at Newcastle. She drifted to 7/1, but won easily. We then backed her for the Group 3 Albany at Royal Ascot and she landed singles at prices up to 20/1 and 16/1, as well as landing us some juicy doubles with our other Ascot winners. She dotted up by six lengths and showed a devastating turn of foot to pull clear of the second, the well-regarded Setarhe from the Roger Varian stable.
Other NMP Royal Ascot winners were Russian Emperor (10/3), Dark Vision (12/1), Tactical (11/2), Art Power (7/2) and Palace Pier (4/1), while we had Gulliver (16/1, EW) and Silent Echo (22/1, EW) placed in the Wokingham.
Following Royal Ascot members are now anything between +112 pts (to highest advised prices) to +75 pts (to lowest advised prices) in profit for the year (the recommended betting bank is 80-100 pts depending on your attitude to risk).
The summer is traditionally the service's most productive period, so once the form has settled down in the next few weeks we'll look to kick on and put further profit on the board in 2020!
