Betting Tip: Arabian Queen @ 12/1 with bet365

John Gosden won this contest in 2012 with Izzy Top and he’s bidding to do the same with that horse’s half-sister Jazzy Top, who won the Pretty Polly Stakes (1m2f) at this meeting 12 months ago. After running a fine fifth in the Epsom Oaks, she went on to land a Group 2 at Deauville before chasing home Covert Love in a Group 1 at the Arc meeting. That’s just about the best form on offer but the drop back to nine furlongs is not ideal on the drying ground and she might need her first run back. At just 13/8, she’s opposable.

Instead, let’s take a flyer each-way on the David Elsworth-trained ARABIAN QUEEN at 12/1 with bet365, who go a quarter the odds as opposed to the standard fifth. She is actually the top rated horse in the race courtesy of last season’s Juddmonte victory from Golden Horn and she was also successful (by four lengths no less) in a Group 3 at Epsom on her reappearance over this sort of trip and under today’s pilot Silvestre De Sousa. The Brazilian is likely to give her a positive ride from the front, as is her style, and he could make all if he gets the fractions right.
