Betting Tip: Emotionless @ 10/3 with bet365

After winning his first three starts narrowly, Sir Michael Stoute’s Thikriyaat produced a career-best effort when second (of 19) in Royal Ascot’s Jersey Stakes behind Ribchester, who was beaten just half a length in Wednesday’s Group 1 Sussex Stakes. On that form he deserves to be favourite for this Group 2 back over a mile, a trip he has won over, at around the 3/1 mark.

However, the ratings suggest he will struggle to cope with Charlie Appleby’s EMOTIONLESS, who looked very exciting when winning his first two starts at two only to pick up an injury when finishing last in the Dewhurst Stakes. The chipped bone in his knee was successfully operated on and, having shown his old sparkle on the home gallops, he was in line to reappear in the 2000 Guineas. Appleby pulled the plug on that idea, though, as he thought the horse needed more time and that decision could pay dividends in the second half of this season, starting with victory here. He ran as well as could be expected when finally reappearing in the St James’s Palace Stakes on ground that was too soft for his liking, and today’s faster conditions should prove ideal. Take bet365’s 10/3 as I can see him going off around 5/2.

Forge gives Stoute a solid second string and he was just a head behind his stablemate in the aforementioned Jersey, while the Godolphin second string Promising Run ran a respectable fifth in the Group 1 Coronation Stakes and is sporting a first-time visor. But they could all be playing for place money if the selection is anywhere near back to his best.
