Betting Tip: Grumeti @ 18/1 with coral

17:35 Queen Alexandra Stakes (Conditions Race), 2m5f159y

Last year’s winner Oriental Fox heads a field of 20 for this eccentric affair which closes out the meeting. He’s no doubt been primed for a repeat but a best-price of 5/1 doesn’t really get the punting juices going, whereas 22/1 on Cesarewitch winner GRUMETI does. The eight-year-old appears to have lost interest with the jumps these days, but he has showed far more spark in two runs back on the level this spring over inadequate trips and Ascot has always shown him in a positive light. He’s own over 1m4f here in the past and may have gone close in the Ascot Hurdle in November but for blundering at the last. Far from exposed as a Flat stayer and just 4lb higher than his Newmarket win last October (won at 50/1 on the nod from Oriental Fox), he might just get us out of trouble (if needed) at a price.
